Disarming the assassin

The Christian Science Monitor

In troubled spots around the globe, assassination is a lurking threat to many in public life. The moral outrage we feel over such threats and the comfort and love with which we may long to reach out to victims' families may also be coupled with despair over whether such acts can be curbed and justice restored.

But surely our outrage stems from an innate conviction of the value and dignity of man and of humanity's right to just government. And doesn't this conviction demand that we not yield to despair? The Bible both encourages and commands, "Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good." Rom. 12:21.
