Sermon for Peace in Moline,IL

Posted by Ryan Hall

By Mason Parks in Moline, IL who organized a sermon for peace and nonviolence during the CNV Week of Actions!

I taught a bible study based on nonviolence and anger. Teaching that as a Christian our anger should not make us lash out but it needs to be channeled and used to drive us to action. Anger is not wrong, but how we respond is key. The bible says, be angry but sin not, Ephesians 4:26. We must channel our anger towards good and not respond as our enemy. Also realising this is a spiritual battle and we can’t win a spiritual battle fighting in the physical. We must maintain our integrity and not become what we are against.
