The significance of Holy Week, and is it ever right for a Christian to stand up for their rights if they are being mistreated?
An email from Matt in Colorado:
The question I've been pondering and wonder if you would take up is this: Is it ever appropriate for a Christian to make the claim for themselves that they are treated unjustly? Of course, we look out for those treated unjustly, but Christ didn't defend himself as being treated unjustly even though he was, and if we are serious about loving our enemies and trusting in God's justice, do we ever get to make the claim that we, personally, are being treated unjustly? What would be the basis for me to make that claim about myself if I believe in God's love, discipline and justice?
