Fighting Christians! Really?…

Thank you Vincent R. Butler, I don’t know ‘Ron XXXXXX’ personally. I understand from his page that he attended a Christian school. I realize that he holds strong political views.

All of us who are christians need to rethink what our values and views are based on. We scream that our country is founded on christian views (yes, this is true), the foundation of these views are the Word of God which is the bible. How we can hold the same view that are country is founded on God and act contrary to the bible in our daily lives is the ultimate contradiction to who we are as christians and how little we know about the Word of God.

We trust in the Word of God for where we will spend eternity, but dismiss what the Word of God and our faith can do right here in this physical realm that we call the world. This contradiction weans at our very faith in God to do the imposible. How can that be? The way we live here on earth most definitely effects where and how we spend eternity.

Jesus said that you would know His disciples by the love they have for one another, but this is neglected when it comes to choosing teams here on earth.

John 13:35
Amplified Bible (AMP)
35By this shall all [men] know that you are My disciples, if you love one another [if you keep on showing love among yourselves].

The real teams are the saved and unsaved that God gave His son for us all to have an abundant life (John 10:10).

John 10:10
Amplified Bible (AMP)
10The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).

That abundant life should hold true to all political parties where there are christians.

The problem arises when we want our own political candidate to win and we are willing to say and do anything to get them in even if it contradicts our discipleship, our faith, our witness, and our God. We are doing life our way instead of the gospel way. Why? Because we don’t believe in it, it’s now become polarized for the win. We hurt, mane and abuse others and some christians in the name of Jesus because they belong to the other political party!

Proverbs 21:2
Amplified Bible (AMP)
2Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs and tries the hearts.

Some of the christians on opposing parties sit in the pew right next to you. Maybe if you noticed them once in a while you both could grab hands and pray for Godly leadership.

Romans 13:1
Amplified Bible (AMP)

1LET EVERY person be loyally subject to the governing (civil) authorities. For there is no authority except from God [by His permission, His sanction], and those that exist do so by God’s appointment.

Even boxers in the ring are taught to show good sportsmanship; they shake hands before the bout and come out fighting when the bell rings. They are even given rules like don’t hit below the belt, rules that are suppose to keep the integrity of the game so that the fighters use their skill instead of their brawling to win.

This win at any cost and being sucked up into the worlds way of fighting has cost us our integrity, our righteousness and our God.

Proverbs 14:12
Amplified Bible (AMP)
12There is a way which seems right to a man and appears straight before him, but at the end of it is the way of death.

We don’t even resemble followers of Christ. Many Christians know this is wrong and still keep silence so they won’t be rejected and left out of the political parties. So they deny their God to join up with the hate and bashing.

Proverbs 3:7
Amplified Bible (AMP)
7Be not wise in your own eyes; reverently fear and worship the Lord and turn [entirely] away from evil.

You want to change the world, one Man did and He did it with Love. He sacrificed His life because He loved you and wanted you to be just like Him to change the rest of the World. He did not die for Christians on opposing parties to fight and hate each other.

1 Timothy 2:1
Amplified Bible (AMP)

1FIRST OF all, then, I admonish and urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all men,

The Word of God holds political views too!!!
GOD IS LOVE, LOVE CONQUERS ALL…
Much love,
Pastor Harris

  2. I have never met a Christian full of hate.

    I have met many who fake it, in Politics, Media, Hollywood, and even my local Church.

    But, I know their heart is not full of my Savior. Or, they would be loving.

    1. Thank you again Wayne for your comment. I agree to be full of hate is to be absent of the Father’s Love. I don’t think they begin that way, hate increases till it consumes everything and everyone around them. They start off disliking a person or candidate not knowing whether that person or candidate is a child of God. Then they bring other christians into their group to hate on another person or candidate and then it goes viral. All this is orchestrated by satan to separate christians from the Love of God.

      Romans 8:38-39
      Amplified Bible (AMP)
      38For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers,
      39Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

      much love…

      1. Sister Harris,

        I do not see any of those people as Christian. I see them as people who ‘redefine’ what the words mean.

        It sounds like you live in an area of the country where progressives have taken control of churches and are damaging Jesus and His Kingdom.

        I do not allow other people to redefine what, and Who, Jesus is.

        Jesus is Love; He is the God of Love; He is the Creator; Judge; Almighty God; He defines Christian, etc.

        But, all the ‘hate,’ and ‘fear,’ generated by the progressive movement is only for satan’s purposes.

        And satan used these pretend ‘Christians’ to re-define what it means to be a Christian. And while he can separate non-believers from the Love which is God, he cannot separate believers from Jesus. Jesus will not grant him that authority.

        1 John 2: 3-9 tells us these people are not Christian. If they were Christian, they would behave like Jesus, not like their father satan.

        IMHO.

        1. Wayne, I couldn’t have said it better. The place where I live it would be very hard to win a conviction of guilty of living and behaving like a christian. The lack of evidence and witnesses would win them an acquittal and set them back into the world.

  3. I think Saint John told us something like “if someone hates a brother they cannot love Jesus …. ”

    So, where do you find these ‘Christians’ so full of hate?

    1. Well actually that is two verses Wayne that i found it in.
      1 John 4:20
      Amplified Bible (AMP)
      20If anyone says, I love God, and hates (detests, abominates) his brother [in Christ], he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, Whom he has not seen.

      1 John 3:15
      Amplified Bible (AMP)
      15Anyone who hates (abominates, detests) his brother [in Christ] is [at heart] a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding (persevering) within him.

      much love
