How would you love an enemy?

In this century, many of our morals and values have been compromised that people (even with strong Christian stance) have a tendency to bend over gray areas-one of which is WAR.

This is something that you don’t usually talk about during get-togethers with Christians, discussions about Christian faith, and the like; but it is equally important that we discuss them openly.

We’ve just finished studying 1st Peter (and before that, James) and watching this film has made me visualize what our brothers and sisters had to go through during the early times of Christianity. Yet, the church endured several persecutions at the hands of the Roman Empire itself without ever considering taking up the sword against their aggressors.

Now isn’t it ironic that we go to war to achieve peace? That violence has become a substantial method to gain pacification?

One person braved to find the answer, and in his search created this documentary.

I believe the God I’m worshipping and serving is a God of balance and order… He is the Prince of Peace-God of War.

 

“Now it scares me that we have a generation of Christians who know what Jesus would do and yet will do the opposite and call themselves followers of Jesus.”
