Let me give us a scenario , using our names .
Lets say butero is from America , I am from Russia, Sister lights is from China. Abby is from England. Cletus is from france.
Many have been taught that we should be patriots to our native born countries .
That in time of war we should even go up and defend our nation .
So let us say a war broke out , with two sides , America England and France , against Russia and China.
IF we were to hold to this patriotic view , and went to war for our nations . On the battle field , fighting for our nations
we would actually be killing ONE ANOTHER .
And whose country is less evil than the others .
I want this to sink in deep today . We are not to follow our countries into war. That would pit christain against christain .
What country does not do evil anyway. Sure in America they think RUSSIA is the all evil one
Russia might think America is the all evil one . TRUTH is , they all are . America does the bidding of that un as well as others.
We all know north korea is evil , I mean it has its peoples in bondage.
But , as evil as it is , IS north korea the one starting wars for oil, is north korea the one with the goal and desire of a oil pipeline.
THE POINT is , all the nations are wicked now , to the core . We got not business and never did picking up arms to denfend the place
where we were born.
WE are supposed to pick up arms , SPIRITUAL arms to defend the gospel . The flesh profits nothing .
Think about that . Let what JAMES said sink in .
If our kingdom were of this world , then we would fight to defend that kingdom . But it is not of this world . our weapons are not carnal, they are spiritual
and our kingdom is not of this world , its of heaven .
But again PONDER the scenario . IF we were from those countries and war broke out , We here on this site would be even killing one another .
DOES that not seem ALL WICKED and EVIL . We were tricked to ever believe we were to be patriots of this earth and fight in its wars .
This mentality has existed , but it is one of the things that some of the protestants really messed up . And now its engrained in many teachings.
WHEN the truth is , it should never have been taught .
