Re: Let's stop the war on Christ!

We can wage war or we can follow Christ. We cannot do both.

We must chose between Armageddon and the Sermon on the Mount. I myself -- as a firm Christian believer -- choose Christ's true teaching, the Sermon on the Mount. Why? Because killing others goes against all the principles that Jesus gave his life for. Jesus Christ never killed anyone. He devoted his whole life to peace. Let's stop the war on Christ.

Jesus is so much more than just a spy for our parents and/or an excuse to kill strangers. Jesus is the Son of Man.

If we want to call ourselves Christians, then we must stop being hypocrites, gather our courage, follow His lead, become like Him and espouse the way of peace.

It takes far more courage to be a peacemaker than it does to fight a war. Jesus was brutally tortured and killed because of his love for mankind and because of his deep and abiding faith that love is more powerful than war.

Let's prove that we also have the guts to stand up for the teachings of Jesus.
