Perfect Love

“We need only look at the cross to see what perfect love looks like when it stares evil in the face—love forgives, love dies, love does not kill. Jesus was not violent, and surely not passive. Jesus shows us a ‘third way’ that is neither fight nor flight. He teaches us that evil can be opposed without being mirrored, oppressors resisted without being emulated, and enemies neutralized without being destroyed.”
