Does following Christ involve rejecting violence?We call Jesus “The Prince of Peace,” but the history of Christianity has been anything but peaceful. Despite Christ’s clear teaching about loving your enemies and turning the other cheek, even suggesting that Christians should embrace “pacifism” will make people uncomfortable, if not outright angry.
Libertarians generally embrace the ethical principle of nonaggression. But does Christ call his followers to a higher standard?
As believers, we should wrestle with these questions.
In this episode of the GodArchy podcast, we do.
This week, I have my first guest – Ryan Burgett. Ryan serves as a Mennonite pastor. Together we delve into the ideas of Christian nonviolence and what that really means in today’s world.
