I’ve recently read where several “preachers” in Southern churches are calling for a “Civil War” if Donald Trump is impeached. A major league Umpire said the same thing. I’ve heard several people at places where I go, say the same thing.
Makes me wonder if a Civil War starts, how are they going to tell who to shoot? Are white “liberals” going to wear blue hats and the “conservatives” gonna wear Red hats. Are they just going to shoot people of color, or people of different religions? Are they going to gun down LBGTQ people? (Will the gay people wear rainbow hats)?
I personally wish people who have positions in which they are supposed to be positive role models, or are supposed to be leaders in a church would remember what a Jesus said in Matthew 26: 52-54-
But Jesus said to him, “Put your sword in its place, for all who take the sword will perish by the sword. Or do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He will provide Me with more than twelve legions of angels? But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?“
Jesus never advocated violence to solve political problems. He told the Pharisees to render unto Caesar that which IS Caesar’s and unto God, that which is his. The only time I can remember Jesus getting mad was when he found people at church (the temple) cheating other church goers (the money changers). He turned their tables over:
Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves “It is written,” he said to them, “‘My house will be called a house of prayer, but you are making it ‘a den of robbers.”
The one time he got really mad….
While he was on the cross dying, he did not once even consider asking his Father to send those ten thousand angels to kill his enemies and save him….and believe me, they would have done just that.
We humans, we followers of Jesus need to try and be more like him, not more like corrupt politicians, no matter who they are.
