Mercy Is a Silver Pearl – Radical Forgiveness for a Killer-Cop GodArchy Podcast 27

Vengeance, so wrong. Drop the gun, forgive the girl. My love, so strong. Mercy is a silver pearl.

By now, you’ve probably heard about the Dallas cop who killed an unarmed man in his own home, and how the victim’s brother forgave the killer cop. It was a beautiful picture of Christian grace and mercy.

But not everybody appreciated Brandt Jean’s gesture. Some Christians even balked at this radical expression of forgiveness. Did Amber Guyger even deserve forgiveness? After all, she didn’t repent. And what about justice?

In this episode of the GodArchy podcast, I consider all of these questions. Along the way, I talk about cops and the moral authority of the state – death.
