Whatever side one comes down on in the debates on government-sanctioned war and capital punishment, Christians ought to agree that the world should be able to see the church as an institution promoting reconciliation, relief efforts, and humanitarian aid in all situations of human violence.
I would have replaced the word institution with the word body and added the word creating beside the word promoting. Regardless of my preferences, I love what Blomberg has to say here.
Does the world see the church this way? What can we do right now where we are - together - to start making that a reality?
