Why “Fight like hell,” when you can fight like Heaven?

People like to, “Fight like hell,” and to embrace destructive conflict. However, fighting like Heaven can turn enemies into friends.When someone uses bullying, force, intimidation, and manipulation to get his way, it usually comes back at him.

Christians are called to demonstrate Christ’s supernatural love and truth to all people, not to insult or bully them.America needs spiritual weapons for political fights–kindness, mercy, forgiveness, humility, honesty, blessing those who insult. Today’s a good day to spread kindness — to refuse to take offense — to put your trust in a Higher Power than human government.

The Old Testament prophets used their access to the King to confront him with truth, not to support his political positions. It’s time to speak truth to power, not to distort truth for power.

The devil tempted Jesus to trade God’s power for human political power. Jesus turned him down.

Perhaps people should be “judged” by “the content of their character” rather than by their political viewpoint. Maybe then, we work together rather than bully each other.

Discover fresh compassion and caring. There’s far too much unkindness and cruelty in the world (on both sides of the womb). To learn more, search for: The Joy Of Early Christianity.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
