I have been discussing my views as a pacifist more publicly lately. Many have known for quite some time that I hold a pacifistic view. I will soon be posting more material on why I am a pacifist and provide arguments for the position. The purpose of this post is to examine a common misnomer, that of the connection of being a pacifist and being passive. These are not one and the same. Here I am posting a clip by Dr. Greg Boyd – a pacifist. Boyd exquisitely breaks down the difference between nonviolence and being passive. He examines righteous anger in the person of Jesus.
