The Disarming Child
Juergen Moltmann

"For to us a child is born. To us a son is given. The government is upon his shoulder." The liberator becomes a pleading child in our world, armed to the teeth as it is. And this child will become the liberator for the new world of peace. That is why his rule means life, not death; peace, not war; freedom, not oppression. This sovereignty lies on the defenseless, innocent and hopeful shoulders of this child.
