No wars should be made in the name of GodThere are some teachings of Jesus very hard to digest. But looking at them closely, we realize that they are the base of our Christian faith.

The Lord send us as sheeps in the midst of wolves.
Christian should never fight back, they say…
The sheeps have no chance when facing a wolf. Because the sheeps are unable to defend themselves. The Shepperd pays close attention to any danger and immediately something goes wrong, he runs to rescue them. He does not care of how big is the danger. But he put his life to save his sheeps. The example is king David when working as a Shepperd for his father.

In this world, If we try to defend ourselves as Christians, we will perish. If we fight evil practicing evil, then we are like them. In this case, we won’t be enhancing the kingdom of God, but the kingdom of darkness.

Matthew 26:52 says: “Put away your sword,” Jesus told him. “Those who use the sword will die by the sword. It’s clear that the Lord disagree with faithing his battles through a sword.

Jesus healed the soldier who went to catch him after Peter cut his ear. We are called to heal, to restore, to forgive, to give to the poor. In few words, to bring the kingdom of God to this world.

Someone may ask, how this can be done without fighting. This is the reason we live by faith. The Lord founded his church with a few

God loves my enemy, so should I.

followers who were not politically powerful, neither well educated, but believe in Jesus words with all their hearts.

Like Paul said, our fight is not against flesh neither blood, but rather against principalities of darkness.

We need to make everyone aware that no one should go to war. This is a dream, it may look impossible, but one day it will happen. It’s written.

If our whole nation convert to Jesus, we need to change our army and instead of people with weapons, we should have an army of man and women with bibles and full of the Holy Spirit to proclaim the gospel to the enemies. Because the only enemy of Jesus followers is evil itself, not the people. If we need to abandon the country, we can do it because we know that our citizenship is not of this world but of Heaven. If do not have anything, we can trust that the Lord provides to those who are loyal to him. This is faith and true belief.

As Christian and I am not patriot for any country but of Heaven. If my country fights and my enemy looses, I also loose. Because God is also at their side. My victory is only when everyone wins. When there is peace. When Jesus touches the hearts and people come to God.
