In a pluralistic society, where everyone has such different beliefs, it’s very difficult to be honest about who we are and what we believe, yet still live at peace with one another. The temptation is to hide what we believe (leading to fear) or impose what we believe in a shrill, insensitive way (leading to anger). For the Christian, this is especially challenging. God’s mission is to bring healing and renewal to the whole world, and he calls every Christian to be a part of that. How do we share that message in a way that creates peace, rather than destroys it? In this passage, Paul shows us how.
