I use my Facebook like most people, to post articles I read that I want to share, keep family and friends updated. I have seen so much ignorance re: Ferguson, and have posted two separate things about it. 474 more words

israeliteindeed reblogged this on The Grace of God and commented:

The following post is much needed. I recently saw a "Christian minister"--someone who preaches "holiness" to others--calling for crusades. Here are his words: "Christians around the world are being slaughtered. Hopefully, this will be a wakeup call to the church, which has been largely neutralized by a pacifist mentality. Where have you gone Pope Urban II?" Then he posted the following pictures in support of his call for the church to "wake up" from its "pacifist mentality."

Notice the American flag on the forehead of this Crusader? Do you really think Jesus is pleased by this?

This is Joan of Arc, a woman who heard "voices" telling her to go to war.

When reminded of Jesus' words in Scripture, and how Jesus and the apostles responded to violence, he answered with this:

"I expected that this post would bring the pacifists out of the woodwork. Wait a minute; they are the woodwork."

In other words, those who refuse to kill others have no value to him. His words were meant as an insult to those who obey Christ's teachings. He went on to say, "Many a faithful soldier has died on a (military) battlefield fighting for the cause of Christ." No, sir, they have not. Those who fight for the cause of Christ do not war after the flesh. The Crusades were not led by the Spirit. They were and are no different than Islamic Jihad, and SHAME ON ANYONE WHO CALLS HIMSELF A SERVANT OF JESUS who is preaching this fear and violence! This so called "preacher of holiness" would do well to consider that there are two parts of this verse--

Pursue (1) peace with all people, and (2) holiness, without which no one will see the Lord. (Heb. 12:14)
