Past lectures

February 23: Dr. Won Lee - Religion

Dr Won LeeHoly Terror: Can We Trust the God of Violence?

The Bible speaks candidly about violent activity of God, which portrays God as blotting out his creation from the earth, laying waste to entire cities, killing his own priests instantly.... How should we understand these troubled descriptions of God? Should we spiritualize, historically adjust, or view them as metaphors for the religious life? Could we as Christians be satisfied by invoking the nonviolent command of Jesus, as if the God of the New Testament is different or superior to the God of the Old? By paying attention to the canonical context of these passages, such divine violence can reveal God’s ways to accomplish redemptive purposes.
