Never has the view of humans made in the image of God been more necessary and more timely

The 20th century started by hailing the triumph of humanism, but ended with the recognition that ‘post-Auschwitz, post-Hiroshima and pre-Singularity’ humanity faces unprecedented challenges that call humanity itself into question.

Instead of working out compromise, we now simply shout at, ban, boycott, shame, hound, and harass those with whom we disagree.

A Bible Shots Talk by Sam Chan

Right now, Christianity is exploding all over the world. Millions of people in Africa, Asia and South America are choosing to love, worship and follow Jesus. So, what are they seeing in Jesus that we in the West are missing? Maybe it’s time that we in the West took some time out and re-examined the Jesus in the Bible. Forget about the Jesus we think we know. Forget about the Jesus we’ve heard about. Forget about the Jesus we’ve grown up with. And rediscover the Jesus in the Bible.

How can we negotiate a compromise without compromising ourselves?
