An Issue

Be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. (Matthew 10:16b) Followers of Christ ought to be shrewed and gentle in their interpersonal relations. This event appears to be neither.

As a Christian, I feel the need to respond to the Terry Jones situation in Florida. I don’t like all the attention this is getting and won’t write a book about a subject of which I have no first-hand knowledge, but I will link this blog post. It is a brief and, I feel, decent little response to the subject without getting pushy or know-it-all.

I will also say that I’m very bothered by people who confuse pig-headed confrontational aggression for boldness, especially when they attribute their behavior to the Christian faith, and it certainly looks as though that’s what is happening here. My husband said the church should go burn their televisions instead. I can’t agree more. That could do a world of spiritual good for a person (without slapping somebody else in the face).
