In hell, “[demons] tortured him beyond anything that anybody has ever conceivedâ€¦ [Christâ€™s] emaciated, poured out, little, wormy spirit is down in the bottom of that thing [hell].” â€“ Kenneth Copeland.

If the Roman Catholics have their crucifixion reenactment, and Jews have their Passover Seder meal, evangelicals have their footwashing ceremony. This week, I have seen footwashing ceremonies being promoted by a couple of big evangelical churches here in the Metro Manila area. Did Jesus, on the night when he was betrayed, really command us to perform an annual footwashing ceremony?
