Its been no secret that war bothers me a little bit. We have had some great discussions on the topic of war and peace. This post is not necessarily about the ethics of war, its more about the brutality of the cross.
Today at church, I was reminded of the brutality of the cross and the devastating price that Christ paid for our forgiveness and freedom from fear.
The communion meditation involved a very vivid story about Normandy France and the events that took place on Tuesday, the 6th of June 1944, otherwise known as D-Day. It was a chilling account of death and the brutality of war. The speaker made a very interesting contrast between the price American Soldiers paid for our freedom and the price Christ paid for our freedom on the cross.
Leaving my opinions aside, what do you think about this very interesting contrast?
Are they the same or separate? Good illustration or disturbing?
