Who Would Jesus Bomb?

Why do so many Christians declare that war is justifiable, such as the Iraq war or the war in Afghanistan? Why do Christians believe in turning the other cheek, when they rarely do? Why does Christianity declare so many wars, I thought they were supposed to be loving people, remember the inquisition and the crusades? Talk about intolerance. Why do Christians hate gays and people who differ in views? Why are Christians tactics so sadistic? Are Christians really devil worshipers trying to disguise themselves as simple sheep, so that they may devour the helpless and needy?

    Apparently you're not supposed to mention the downsides of Christianity as it makes them feel bad about themselves.

    As opposed to the effects of their behaviour on others, which makes those people dead.

    Boofreakinghoo, Christians.

    I can't say whether Jesus would or would not bomb anyone, I can only speak for myself.

    However, the many questions you raise in detailing your primary question suggest that you are outraged by what appears to be the hypocritcal behaviour of many Christians.

    All social and cultural institutions are prone to prejudices and will tend to perceive the world in terms of their own narrow point of view and then to act upon their perceptions regardless of the validity of their perceptions or beliefs. So all institutions and the people who are their members are prone to errors which may often have dramatic or regretable consequences for themselves and for others.

    This is an inescapable part of how we function as individuals and as members of social institutions and therefor not a specific fault of Christians as a group but is instead applicable to all of us no matter what religion or nationality or culture we may belong to.

    So who would Ghandi or Mohammed bomb? Christians, Hindus and Muslims all employ bombs in the name of god. God permits this, and we cannot change this, so while we might condemn this sort of behaviour and be proponents for peace, like god, we must accept this. To go to war and persecute others for their violence is folly, we would then be perpetuating the very thing we say we abhor and we would then also be hypocrits.

    those who believe in the war in Iraq believe it was necessary to get a military base in the part of the world in order to have a strategic foothold against Iran. Iran was always the main target.

    as for Government and christianity, YOU cannot mix the two !!! for example Pres Bush and his Family were eyewitnessed to be participating at the bohemian grove, which is NOT a christian worship Conference. See Alex Jones and his testimony at prisonplanet.com

    as for the remark about christians being devil worshippers. It is true there are many antichrists in the leadership of churches. I believe that. it is written in the bible that many WOLVEs entered the flock and led many away and scattered the flock. But that does not mean all sheep are wolves. Only the wolves are the ones that are wicked.And yes satan seeks the world to devour the people of God like a lion.

    as for other scriptural reference see Rev 18:4. the people of god joined the church of satan and the angel calls to them "come out"

    but the same criteria of judgement placed on christians can also be placed on jews and muslims worldwide

    But to answer your question: it is written that Jesus/ or God uses the kings of the earth against each other. which means that nations will Nuke each other. However, if any country or ALL countries on earth become like Sodom and gomorah!!! He would send fire and brimstone and bomb everyone. and only spare a remnant, hence the people that are truly righteous will be spared and the wicked will become ASHeS under their feet.

    They aren't devil worshippers. They just seem to like to paint themselves as the Ultimate Moral Authority and come down on everyone different from them accordingly. It's called Idealized Xenophobia.

    "With or without religion good people will do good things and bad people will do bad things. For a good person to do a bad thing, now THAT takes religion."
