The R-word (and others)

20Mar09

We Christians have special reason not to use disparaging language.

We’re told, “For he who is least among you all is the one who is great” (Luke 9:48, ESV). We know that every person is created in the image of God and is therefore worthy of love and respect (Genesis 1:26). We’re shown that even religious extremists and IRS agents are prime candidates for the mercies of God (See Saul in Acts 9 and Matthew 9:9, respectively).

If we really understood the magnitude of Christ’s love, I’m convinced that this campaign wouldn’t be necessary for us, but I’m sure it is. I can think of a few other words that deserve more consideration in my speech. You?
