I am not a pacifist; I believe that we must pursue justice. Yet a Christian history stained by anti-Semitism—holding an entire people responsible for the actions of a few—teaches us the terrible consequences of not following Jesus’ way. We dare not do to Muslims what we have, to our shame, done to Jews.
Philip Yancey, author of What Good Is God?: In Search of a Faith That Matters
Christianity Today published this range of Christian responses, which I found remarkable in variety and tone. I will be reflecting on parts of several articles Sunday, especially from Will Willimon (you should read all the way to the end for his prophetic message), Phillip Yancey and Richard Stearns of World Vision.
