Why violence is the perfect solution to every problem

Simple: It demands the least of us in terms of both compassion and creativity. Rather than sacrifice our time, resources, rights or comfort in an effort to resolve a conflict, violence allows us to foist the total cost of a conflict onto our enemies. Think of it as the fast food of conflict resolution. The [Read More...]

David French needs to read some MLK

In a recent blog post, David French, Senior Counsel at the staunchly Zionist American Center for Law and Justice, argues that in the face of violence, Pacifism… is nothing more than compelled helplessness… [it] is thus the worst possible response to attack, not just tactically and strategically stupid in secular terms but also a direct abdication of a [Read More...]

How do you react to news of atrocities?

This question came up today as I read this Gospel Coalition article that questions the reports of ISIS beheading children in Iraq and then placing their heads on pikes. I reacted instinctively against this story the first time I heard it; not because I don’t believe people are capable of such behavior but because it reeked of a much [Read More...]

Buy Frank Schaeffer’s new book, get a discount on “Hellbound?”

Frank’s book is called Why I’m an Atheist Who Believes in God. I had the pleasure of editing an early draft of the book for Frank, and I have to say it’s one of the most powerful, heartfelt, challenging books I’ve read in a long time. It was just released today in paperback for a [Read More...]
