After my colleague Nancey Murphy delievers an address in London, two Muslim men sought her out to ask, “Did we hear correctly? You are a Christian and you believe in nonviolence?”
“Yes, I come from a long tradition, Anabaptism, which, like Jesus did, refuses violence.”
“And you would not kill, even to protect your family?”
“I’ve told my husband and my son that I would gladly die for them, but I will not kill for them.”
“This is part of the Christian tradition?” They asked, surprised.
“This is not the Christianity we know about.”
