Thayer Thursday – Jonah and the Boston bombers

Thayer Thursday – Jonah and the Boston bombers

“As the people of God, we can (and should) cry out for and pursue justice, but we should not delight in the destruction of anyone, whether an individual or a nation. This is the lesson God taught Jonah 2700 years ago – a lesson we still need to hear today, perhaps especially today.”

Note from a reader about abortion related posts

Note from a reader about abortion related posts

“I don’t always know how the articles and posts I share via social media are received by readers, or even if anyone reads them besides those who leave comments.

“But as a society, we MUST be confronted with the true nature of what it is we are responsible for enabling–whether it’s the dismembered bodies of children who are killed by Predator drones in Yemen, or by surgical instruments in a Planned Parenthood clinic.”

A loving (hopefully!) word to my ‘Red Letter Christian’ friends

A loving (hopefully!) word to my ‘Red Letter Christian’ friends

“I respect many of those (including good friends!) who run on such circles, and I certainly sympathize with their desire to offer a corrective to unbiblical, rightwing, uber-conservative evangelicalism and the rank nationalism that often infects it, but for the reasons above, I’m afraid I cannot join them in being a self-proclaimed “Red Letter Christian.”

Debating a world famous scholar on Israel

“However, despite our friendship and unity in faith, when it comes to the issue of how we should view the modern Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the historical events surrounding it, Dr. Brown and I have some pronounced areas of disagreement.”

It’s not about “dead Jews” – a response to a friend on Israel and Gaza

It’s not about “dead Jews” – a response to a friend on Israel and Gaza

“Is it really the case that the world should stand shoulder-to-shoulder in solidarity with the government that has helped bring about so much suffering and injustice among a huge segment of the population without voicing honest and pointed criticism when that government’s actions help pave the way for such tragedy?”

Gaza, Israel and the truth

Gaza, Israel and the truth

“Yesterday I saw two Facebook posts on friends’ timelines that illustrate that the war in Gaza is not just about bombs, rockets, bullets and land…it’s also a war of ideas.”
