Challenging believers in Jesus to think and act based on Bible truth.

Quickblog: Tweets and Links for Processing Minneapolis, Baton Rouge, Dallas

For those thinking, grieving, or wondering how to do either, I share some soundbites, a few lengthier articles and a video as well. I have tried to share from diverse perspectives within the Christian faith.

Tweets

Profoundly grieved over the tragedies of the last 3 days. Sound bites won’t help. Praying for God to bring justice & comfort to all of us.

Just to be clear: We need laws & procedures that protect the lives of officers and civilians. Both and, not either or.

It will only perpetuate our present issues. Please, pray that this does not become a new reality. It is NOT the way. Help us, Lord.

If I can hardly bear to watch it, how can my brothers bear to live it? Have mercy.

When will the madness stop? How long, O Lord?

It’s to our shame that we have allowed terms like “justice” and “mercy”–biblical terms and commands–to be associated only with “liberals.”
