co-opted

If our ecclesiology has been co-opted by the systems, then we cannot find liberation by revision within the systems as they are currently expressed. That perpetuates the system. It is thus important to assess the theological issues that led to such a pattern and determine if these need revision or transformation.

~Patrick Oden, Hope for the Oppressor (forthcoming)

Note, that if our ecclesiology has been co-opted, so too has our theological and ministerial education.
