Love Your Neighbor

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: Bible

Submitted by Servant of Christ (United States), Jan 13, 2007 at 09:46

The Bible is a Book of War

Prove it:

"for all who draw the sword will die by the sword." (Matthew 26:52) NIV

but love your neighbor as yourself (Leviticus 19:18) NIV

But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, (Luke 6:27) NIV

The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. (2 Corinthians 10:4) NIV

If you've noticed, Jesus and all the Apostles said that we would be persecuted. Christians are not ones to persecute. Instead, we are to endure the hardships of this world.

I hope you're not going to bring up the OT conquest verses which were limited to several tribes in which the Jews could conquer. Most people don't examine the context when they quote them.

May God Bless You all
