As of late I have been very disturbed about something. Christians and the Christian right in particular. It bothers me greatly how hawkish these people are. How they worship the state and call for more and more wars and killing. It’s sickening to me how they pervert the word of God. The Bible tells us to have no other Gods before God. But the Christian right has a God in something else. The state, and in particular the military of the state. They absolutely love the military. They can’t get enough of it. They love everything about it, the uniform, the killing, the wars, and the way of life it instills. I just don’t understand what happened. Why these individuals somehow think that the wars are moral and most even have the audacity to say that we are doing God’s work. That’s funny, isn’t Jesus called the prince of peace? Didn’t he teach us to love our enemies, to love our neighbors, to be compassionate towards others, to help others? What happened to these values? In the mind of these people War is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength.
Well said. I know we see it in everyday life, but few Christians are called on it. http://live-free-in-an-unfree-world.com
