The Golden Rule [in context]

We saw 50 people killed in the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando; the shooting of Philando Castille in Minnesota; the killing of Anton Sterling in Baton Rouge; the shooting of 11 officers in Dallas ending in 5 deaths; and this doesn't even include the many unreported shootings throughout our country in the past month. Is it possible that the Jesus way is actually THE way forward? Is it possible that, as GK Chesterton says, "The Christian faith has not been found tried and wanting, it has been found difficult and untried."
