Sažetak
The paper attempts to assess the state of Christianity as a power mechanism. There are certain speculations which seem to argue that historically Christianity has served as a mechanism to aggregate power for the political and religious establishment of the time through the means of emerging with the Roman Empire, Crusades, and Colonialism. Although at particular times, Christianity has been used to aggregate power from the people, this paper argues that Christianity supports a different view of power. We argue theologically and historically that a distribution philosophy of power is intrinsic to Christianity, and Christianity itself (pre and post Reformation) has served as a mechanism to empower the people.
