Ethics and being like God

May 5, 2011

Thanks to Geoff for reminding me of this from John Howard Yoder:

“Jesus says that by loving their enemies his disciples will be like their heavenly father. This is said of no other ethical issue”

Yoder, John Howard. The War of the Lamb: The Ethics of Nonviolence and Peacemaking, 79

    Hope you don’t mind another quote!

    “Divine love is stronger – in its vulnerability – than the forces of evil, apathy, human selfishness and callousness”.
    Don English “Everything in Christ”
