Many argue that Christians must address their own culpability in the destruction of Europe's Jewry. If post-Holocaust Christians only lament Christianity's sin the tradition will be ultimately left with little to say and no credibility. Post-Holocaust Christians must emphasize positive differences that Christianity can make, including:
-- Repentant honesty about Christianity's anti-Jewish history
-- New appreciation for the Jewish origins of Christianity, the Jewish identity of Jesus, and the continuing vitality of the Jewish people and their traditions
-- Welcome liberation from liturgies and biblical interpretations that promote harmful Christian exclusivism.
