    From my perspective, intentionally withholding the offer of forgiveness as a way to punish an unrepentant sinner is a way of this world that defies the way that Jesus both lived and died, and certainly defies the justice of God.

    Great is Your Faith

    After reading this story about Jesus’ encounter with the Canaanite woman in the Gospel of Matthew, we already can hear the critics of Jesus lining up at the door and throwing all kinds of labels at him—sexist, racist, misogynist, elitist, and male chauvinist pig. If Jesus can get away with calling this Canaanite woman a dog, then it’s only fair that Jesus also can be called a chauvinist pig.
