Podcast: Charlie Hebdo and the Canary in the Mine

Charlie Hebdo, ISIS, Boko Haram. These words bring to mind tragedy and ideologically fueled violence. As members of the global community, we need to understand the factors that lead some to engage in acts of terror in the name of their beliefs.

In this episode of Pass the Mic, I was asked about some of the associations between Islam, the disenfranchisement that leads some down the path of violence, and how Christians should respond. I tried to keep the hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ central to the analysis, keeping in mind the distinction that radical Islam is a system, but Muslims are people.

Christians respond to hate with love, aggression with peace, and darkness with light because their Savior did the same and empowers us to imitate Him.
