Turning the Tables

We believe God is wholly love and completely non-violent, and that we are called to exemplify this love. Despite this, many of Jesus’ words and actions in the New Testament seem violent.

The violence in the Old Testament is a huge barrier to people understanding the true character of God. Jesus most perfectly represents what God is like, but how can we imagine Jesus doing some of the nasty things in the Old Testament?
