The recent bombing at the Boston Marathon and reported religious connection of the suspects has some critics comparing fundamentalist Muslims who kill in the name of Allah with fundamentalist Christians like who do stupid things in the name of Jesus, like bomb abortion clinics or protest military funerals. As I was pondering those comparisons the thought occurred to me, “Christians aren’t supposed to be dangerous. Oh, wait. Yes they are.”
We aren’t supposed to be dangerous in the sense of suicide (or not) bombers and wars on terror. But we are supposed to be dangerous to the spiritual not-well-being of people separated from the Lord.
Christians should be the most dangerous people on the planet because of our normally radical love-irradiated lives. This love isn’t soft on sin but it is compassionately confrontational with the entire truth of the gospel.
This is what makes us so dangerous. Not what we do but what Jesus has done. Not a system of belief but what we are in Him. So, Christian, are you dangerous? If you aren’t, then you aren’t doing it right.
