When it comes to terrorism, we need to understand the difference between our individual Christian responsibility and the government's responsibility. Totally different.
Yes, as individual Christians, we are called to love and forgive any human who hurts us. We are to pray and share the Gospel with the lost in love. We are to encourage and disciple the new babies who just got saved as well as old believers wanting to grow. So by God's grace.. let's do our part well exalting Jesus. And using the Bible not for twisted or selfish ends, but let's do this accurately as the Spirit empowers each of us to do this in love.
But listen, the government has a completely different responsibility. And that responsibility is to protect its citizens and secure the borders for safety's sake. Liberals keep trying to say Government are to let all in. Bad unbiblical idea--this protects zero people.
Why are citizens repeatedly forced into being the first line of defense? It because the Government refuses to uphold its own laws and so many murders keep happening on our boarders?
You know, the government is never told in the Bible to turn the other cheek or to forgive. In Romans 13, the Bible says government is. In Romans 13 the government says government is to be an instrument of wrath to bring retribution against those who do evil. I believe it is God's plan for government to go after ISIS and eradicate the evil of radical Islam.
Again, there's a huge difference between our individual responsibility and the government's responsibility. Individually, we can support relief agencies like Samaritan's Purse and so forth, but what we can't do is allow people into our country we don't know. The government (and it's top leader) says we will properly vet them. Let's begin to get it, infidels, and unify around the Christ of the Bible and what His word clearly says.
Please give me a break. Lies--he keeps on lying to us. Do we believe this country will protect us from an enemy they're unwilling to identify? Radical Islamic terrorists. How are they gonna vet these refugees if they don't even know who the enemy is?
And so I say, as Christians, let's GO CHECK OUT ALL THE SCRIPTURE ADDRESSING GOVERNMENT AND WHICH ONES ARE ADDRESSED TO ISRAEL AND THEN TO US AS CHRIST'S CHURCH. Let's look closely at the ones to us individually and do what we can but let's say no to immigration and refugees until government starts performing its God-given responsibility of securing the borders.
Spending time with, fully grasping, understanding God’s word, and then applying it is so imperative. Jesus basically tells us to come to Him, to learn of Him, and to simply find rest in Him. Why? Cuz relationship with God is refreshing.
It’s a relationship that is satisfying—way more refreshing. So why not stop striving in the flesh to earn His love or to have everything there is all figured out.
It's possible for the Gov to start doing their biz and for each of us to wisely do our own responsibilities appropriately--biblically. I mean God's way for us to do em. Smart! And for us believers, let's all make God's Word.. Jesus Christ ..well known all around the world by deeds, words and genuine love. People that really know Him want to help others and cease wanting to hurt anyone. facebook.com/shareJesus
