When Jesus talked about the Kingdom of God, he was talking about an utterly different way of relating to human society as we know it. He was talking about a new world order, a term recently on the lips of politicians. What a false sense of the term they have used, contends popular preacher and author Richard Rohr. "I doubt that any major political leader would align a new world order in terms of cooperation, trust, service and redemptive suffering, " writes Rohr. "For all the talk of a new world order, it's simply the old world order. The 'New World Order, ' or the 'Reign of God, ' is the heart of the New Testament."
