How Should Christians Think About Religious Violence?

Excerpted from Desiring God Blog:

Religious violence is a terrible thing. Chances are high that you’d agree, especially in the West, especially if you’re reading this. But recently, in a video that has made the rounds online, some American college students give us a different impression.

The video is of a reporter hanging out in the commons area of a college campus, holding a clipboard and trying to get students to sign a petition in support for ISIS. The point of the video, I think, is to make a statement about our general ignorance. But then there is a dialogue with one student who seems to defend ISIS, not because she is Muslim, but because, in her words, “Every religion has their moments. Don’t get me started on the Christians, on what they did to the non-believers once upon a time.”
