What's it like to turn from the crusader spirit of the just-war theory to the spirit of Christian peacemaking? In this post I share my own journey to becoming a Christian peacemaker to encourage those who are making the same journey.
Towards A Gospel-Means of Resisting Evil
As much as Jesus demonstrates in his life that it is true that "evil triumphs when good people do nothing", his life also clearly demonstrates the lesson that it is also true that evil triumphs when good people do evil. So how should Christians overcome evil?
The Inverted Sword
Christians are not called to be agents of wrath, seeking to execute vengeance upon the wicked, but to be agents of peace, seeking rather to bring about their redemption! We don't use force to crush our enemies, we depend upon the grace of God to transform them through the cross of Christ which we carry into this world.
