Redemption and Stopping the Violence
What do Christian views on the possibility of redemption have to do with stopping violence? Kennedy’s discussion of the intervention in High Point, North Carolina is soaked in the language of reconciliation and redemption. Do Christian views on how God responds to sin shed any light on this process of stopping inner-city violence in America? Make sure to explain the particular view of justification or redemption you are discussing, make references to the source readings on “Justification” and Don’t Shoot, and include your own experiences and thinking on this topic.
