The Sermon on the Mount and Iran

In a recent post on the Essence Restored blog titled The Sermon on the Mount and Iran a very good point is brought up that all those who claim the name of Jesus should ponder...

"If it is morally justified to create a pre-emptive war and kill hundreds of thousands of people in the name of stopping a “hypothetical threat” then all the teachings of Jesus about loving our enemy, about how those who live by the sword will die by the sword, and turning the other cheek are pretty much worthless, and the teachings of Jesus should be abandoned."


Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-92) England's best-known preacher of the nineteenth century said it quite well...


"The spirit of war is at the extremely opposite point to the spirit of the gospel"


Peace, Love, and Light!

True-that's why I don't believe any true Christian should be a soldier in any worldly army-it's been historically proven that there were no Christian soldiers anywhere in the world until about the time Constantine had his demonic vision that changed all of that.
