God's Politics

To keep struggling against hate and to practice forgiveness need not mean abdicating one’s rights or renouncing justice. This should be emphasized over and over again. It is part of loving one’s enemy that Christians must remind the “enemy” of justice and right. It is part of loving to speak the truth.
