This generated a heated debate, as you can imagine. To see my justification for my conclusion and read the discussion, head on over to Joan's blog.
I think Jesus' view on compassion presents an interesting (and surprising; even shocking) perspective on how the Infinite God is involved in everything (and how he perceives everything). Does an abrasive God who sometimes responds out of anger (not compassion) change the way we should respond to other people? Drop me a comment and let me know what you think.
