A Couple Articles On Christian Non-Violence

On his personal blog, Greg Boyd writes...

If you honestly, carefully, and with an open mind study the following passages, I believe you’ll agree that the teaching against violence for Kingdom people is as clear as any teaching in the Bible could ever be {READ THE REST}

And In an article for the Huffington Post, Shane Claiborne writes...

I am excited to be alive this Easter. I see a movement in the church that is once again looking at the non-violent Jesus with awe and wonder. We are convinced that Christians should be the hardest people in the world to convince that violence is necessary ... not the folks beating war drums and pushing for the death penalty. As we look at the cross, we see what perfect love looks like as it stares evil in the face. It says, "Forgive them for they know not what they do." It is a Gospel of nonviolence.

I hope to continue touching on the subject of non-violence throughout the week.

Your thoughts?
