Two-fold Crucifixion

Carson:  “But Paul insists that the Christian boasts in nothing but the cross of the Lord Jesus.  It is the sole basis of our acceptance before God, nothing else — not circumcision, not law – keeping, not kosher tables, not belonging to the right community.  The sole ground is the cross, so that is our sole “boast.”  If you believe that, what the world thinks will matter little: it is as if the world has been crucified so far as you are concerned, and you are crucified so far as it is concerned.”
