Ep 145: Loving Enemies in an Age of Violence, with Ron Sider

Did Jesus really say that his followers could never use violence? Are there circumstances whereby a person should reluctantly use violence because the situation permits it? If a Christian decides to be completely nonviolent, what options do they have to fight against injustice? Ron Sider joins us to talk about these questions, which he addresses in his book, If Jesus is Lord: Loving Our Enemies in an Age of Violence.
