The Real Answer to Violence

I saw a blog post by Jay Adams on the Institute for Nouthetic Studies site. The author entitled the post, "The Only Real Answer to Violence".

The entry is short and basically says that God has given us standards in Scripture that should shape our behavior as individuals and societies.

I have no argument with Adams' post. I believe his premise, and I further believe that God will bring about such changes, in time. Obedience to God's Law represents the only ultimate solution to the problem of violence.
In the interim, we need not only disciples who live righteous lives but Christian sheepdogs who will stand against violence -- indeed, against evil in every form -- and protect the flock from the predators who lurk among us.
