Shane Claiborne – “Why I Got Arrested On Good Friday” – Why I Have A Problem With This!

Shane Claiborne explains why he got arrested on Good Friday – read it all HERE. The quick version was that he began praying outside the offices of an arms contractor. It was a peaceful protest – it was done prayerfully – so why do I have a problem with it?

Maybe its because Jesus never modeled such behavior. Did he hold peaceful prayer meetings outside the Roman pretorium – or outside the Sanhedrin or Pharisees meeting rooms? In fact, Jesus would probably advocate us cleaning the car of the company CEO – or cleaning his house – or doing his yard – as well as praying for him and loving him. Jesus never organized a protest – he simply lived a god centered life  and speaking the truth.
