On this week’s Trending Faith, Dean of the College of Theology Jason Hiles, PhD, and University Pastor and Dean of Students Tim Griffin, sit down to discuss the reality of hatred for Christians in today’s society, especially in the light of the loving and forgiving God that we follow.
“It’s startling … to think that this sort of thing is happening in my backyard,” said Dr. Hiles about the beginnings of persecution that we are starting to see in America. He continued to comment that even though this persecution is new to Americans, there has been a much more severe and ongoing persecution of people for their faith.
Dr. Hiles advised that, when we are being put down and ridiculed for our faith, we should follow what Jesus did and put more love and more grace on those who persecute us.
