Everyone knows that Mark Driscoll thinks that "the Prince of Peace is not a pacifist" or a "pansy."* He's even said that "engaging evil in order to protect others is not evil," and we agree, but we also think the Way of Jesus means we engage evil non-violently, just like Jesus does in the Gospels.
Unfortunately, many like Mark Driscoll think that all Christian Pacifists are "pansies." But anyone who chooses to join a CPT delegation in places like Colombia, Iraq, Palestine, Africa, and the US/Mexico borderlands knows that can't be true. We want Mark Driscoll to experience the bold, raw, non-violent activism of a CPT delegation team for himself.
YOU can help by using social media to let Mark know that you think he should experience Christian non-violence for himself. If Mark doesn't think he is up to the challenge, we'll take all monies raised and use them for our general scholarship fund, so that other Christian Pacifist "pansies" can risk their life to bring the Peace & Justice of Jesus into our world.
ABOUT CPT, International
CPT places violence-reduction teams in crisis situations and militarized areas around the world at the invitation of local peace and human rights workers. CPT embraces the vision of unarmed intervention waged by committed peacemakers ready to risk injury and death in bold attempts to transform lethal conflict through the nonviolent power of God’s truth and love.
