Jesus challenges us. Let us think about it. How important is our safety?
Should we, as Christians, care?
Can we support a “non peaceful” approach? Should we?
Jesus opened up a can of whup ass on charlatans in the temple. He didn’t pray for them or write them an angry email with the caps lock on or call them “man-made religious disasters” that we need to apologize to for forcing them to sell overpriced spiritual curios. Nope, he methodically sat down, got ticked, made a whip and cleared the punks.
