Finally a Good Decision Sept 10
Relief. That is how to describe the decision not to burn the Koran by Rev. Jones.
It is a poor biblical model to burn the sacred text of another religion. Those who burned magic books in Ephesus in Acts 19:19 were making a statement about the change of their own practice (a different kind of statement from the one being contemplated here). Paul's reaction to the needs of the world are to plead with the world to be reconciled to Christ (2 Cor 5:17-21). The early church did not go into synagogues seeking to destroy them, but to present Christ to those who needed to hear about him. So in the end, a good decision. Hopefully the Reverend will not move from this new place.
