War batters the truth that human life matters

People who get caught up in fighting earthly battles have little time to fight spiritual battles and thus surrender themselves to inner torment.

The phrase “to die for your country” is common, but you rarely hear the phrase “to kill for your country.” Don’t they go together?

Any leader who orders the killing of innocent people should be immediately disobeyed and removed from office.

War batters,
Then shatters,
The truth that
Human life matters.

Many decent people will engage in criminal activity like bombing when they’re told it’s on behalf of their country.

Cowardly armies send bombs crashing down on people from afar because they don’t have the courage to fight them face to face.

War demonstrates that blind patriotism can drive decent people into deliberately destructive behavior.

A soldier is the military. If soldiers won’t fight an army can’t.

Young men are often told that they’re supposed to go to war, but are seldom told to do what Jesus said, “Love your enemies.”

A Christian’s duty to follow and obey the risen Jesus far surpasses any duty to country.

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!
