      As has been previously
      noted, "everyone" is
      talking about what Lee
      Camp did and didn't say
      and what he did and
      didn't mean.

      Here's a link to a
      website that provides
      some additional
      perspective:

      http://billhobbs.com/200
      6/11/brief_news_stories_
      can_seldom.html

      Given Camp's apparent
      standing as a "radical"
      and "liberal", one
      might suspect there was
      plenty in his speech
      for less radical and
      liberal sorts to take
      exception to.

      Maybe the conference
      and newspaper article
      will provide a little
      catalyst for some to
      try and figure out what
      Camp really is saying
      and what he really is
      meaning.

      Some have suggested
      that his "speech", as
      opposed to the after
      the fact "spin", be
      transcribed or
      otherwise published for
      consideration.

      One might reasonably
      suppose the newspaper
      didn't get it quite
      right and that,
      similarly, the "spin"
      from Camp and Lipscomb
      University is not quite
      accurate either.

      Sincerely,

      How can Christians and non-Christians get along? What a funny question. It s true enough that churches don t spend nearly enough time and heart teaching

        "How can Christians and non-Christians get along?"

        What a funny question. It's true enough that churches don't spend nearly
        enough time and heart teaching what Jesus taught, or being willing to live
        humbly, to extend hospitality to strangers, to care for those lonely and in need,
        to serve rather than be served.

        However, Ray Waddle is still missing the point. Neither for Christ nor for
        his followers is the purpose of life peace on this earth. Christ himself
        stated that he came not to bring peace but a sword, to set father against son
        and mother against daughter. If he was willing that his words should set
        families against one another, it can hardly be stated that it is contrary to his
        teachings that believers and non-believers should be at variance.

        Peace as an end in itself is a platitude, not a principle. Shocking as the
        statement may sound in these modern and enlightened times, strife, violence,
        enmity, even war, are the result of evil, not the evil itself. Where evil
        does not produce strife, peace and mercy do not reign. A society so saturated
        and numbed by its own rottenness that it has lost the willingness to stand
        against it is not a peaceful society; it is merely an apathetic one.

        Cassondra
