WAR – WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?

May 4, 2010






If we are to be true followers of Jesus Christ, then we must ask ourselves:

“Would Jesus ever go to war – or kill anybody – under any circumstances, for any reason, at any time, in any place?”



We MUST answer NO, NO, NO and NO!!

How can we then say that we follow Jesus but support any government effort to wage war against anybody for any reason? C’mon now, folks. We are not living in the Old Testament, and we are not the nation of Israel. We are bound by a New Covenant of Love and Peace, bought and paid for by the Prince of Peace.

The least we can do is resist any effort by any government or any other entity to draw us into their sphere of hatred, domination, greed and total destruction.

Read Galations 5 and then tell me there’s one speck of room there for war or violence of any sort. If the Holy Spirit is in you, then you will not support war.

If you support war, then I have to wonder if the Holy Spirit – the Spirit of Almighty God – is in you.

  1. I totally agree! Support of war is unconscionable. And we are supposed to be evolving as a species – to higher consciousness and thought patterns. But still we are perverted by the human ego.

    I happened upon this web site….hope you keep it up. You are making an excellent and valid point that most Christians I know have seemed to conveniently overlook in their politicizing of the gospel of Jesus Christ where they have wrapped him in the American flag, made him a spokesperson for democracy and called him home slice.

    I’m thankful for the radicals that still tell the truth.
