Quote – How to Unchristian the Faith.

“If you take the love of the enemy out of the Christian faith, you have unchristianed the faith.” – @MiroslavVolf

Jesus’ teachings are clear. Feel uncomfortable about it if you wish. Suggest that this might be unpatriotic or naive if you want.  But you cannot be fully committed to Jesus’ teachings and disagree.

So Miroslav Volf makes this difficult observation. “If you take the love of the enemy out of the Christian faith, you have unchristianed the faith.”

It’s painful to think it through. “Othering” and excluding are so deeply tied to our cultural view of religion. But Jesus called us to something different, didn’t he?

Miroslav Volf is a widely influential theologian of Anglican background. He’s well known for his work on the trinity.
