Does holding to the Christian faith mean that violence is never an option? From contexts of a parent using force to protect a child to a country using weapons to protect civilians, what does "turn the other cheek" and "love your enemy" look like practically? When Jesus says "those who live by the sword will die by the sword," does that mean no fighting, even in order to protect?
Author and activist Shane Claiborne and Seacoast's Jack Hoey are together again to discuss pacifism (check out Episode 2 for a discussion between these two on whether Christians can accrue wealth and serve God at the same time).
We're all in agreement that the church's highest calling is to love. Are there times when love demands force?
