Re: [XTalk] Gibson's Christ vs. the HJ
- Thanks Mike,
I hope you might be encouraged by the fact that this is how the people at my
church¹s youth group saw it. Jesus fought the status quo not by crusades,
building walls, or launching a jihad but by absorbing the evil thrown at him
and forgiving it. No doubt some/many Christians read it as per your
theologians. But I can vouch for the fact that not all.
