'Deeper than Marx's claim that workers "have nothing to lose but their chains" is the Christian promise that we have "nothing to lose but our sin." Nothing that is truly human is lost in redemption. Death in baptism is to self, not of self. He came that we "may have life, and have it more abundantly" (John 10:10) and that your "joy may be full" (John 16:24).'
