There is a considerable amount of talk floating around among Christians in the social media world concerning comments that Pastor Mark Driscoll made in regards to the belief many Christians hold concerning Jesus’ teaching to “love your enemies”. He equates attempting to live this out in a way that says it is wrong to kill, in any circumstance, to being a pansy. He equates meekness and pacifism as weakness in saying, “I cannot worship the hippie, diaper, halo Christ because I cannot worship a guy I can beat up,” ( See more here: )
Now, there is much I could say to support my belief of what many call “Christian Pacifism”, but instead of trying to argue with those who disagree with it (that may come in a future post), or give “Biblical Ammo” to those who agree (I don’t think the Scripture should ever be used that way); I just want to challenge you to listen to a song and meditate on it’s truth. This blog is about reflection and mediation, so while your meditating, reflect a bit and see if perhaps any aversion you may have to Jesus’ teaching to love your enemies is rooted in seeing things upside down.
