Christians seem to be very excited about Israel at the moment, in light of Trump’s controversial decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. But there’s also a lot of arguing going on. With Israel much in the news, I sat down on the red sofa with my colleague in Old Testament studies, Dr. Glenn Wooden, to talk about Israel in the Bible and today.
As Christians, we’re called to compassion, and we’re doing a pretty good job of it as Canadian evangelicals, according to Rick Tobias. We’re known (and needed) for our generosity, cheerfully giving our time and financial resources to help those who are in need. This is good news! Yet, it’s not good enough. In a recent interview with our friend Dr. Rick Tobias, he reminds us that compassion is not our end goal. God desires justice.
