The lynching tree and when bad things happen, “where is God?”.
Famines, poverty, and racial injustice, “where is God when bad things happen?” is a question with merit. Perhaps, however, there’s an equally important question that each one of us must dare to ask. When we do, we will see justice.
I’m tired of “them” should I cut “them” off?
The language used in Matthew 18:17 is less harsh than we initially assume since Jesus (and his community) is accused of befriending the “undesirables” like tax collectors and Gentiles. Held in tension with 1Corinthians 5, we’re glad to know God is concerned with reconciliation.
