“Jesus Abhors Our Violence”
Yes, Christians could refer to the Ten Commandments on the issue of their personal use of violence and passionate support for so-called “Just Wars”.
But, more importantly why don’t true Jesus followers simply believe and act on God’s commands in Matthew 5:38-48?
Why have the vast majority of Christians replaced ‘kill’ with ‘murder’ in their belief system, and ripped the entire Matthew passage, and other like it in the New Covenant out of their Bibles solely because they don’t agree?
Why do so many so-called Christians replace clearly commanded New Covenant, creative “Third Way” pacifism, NOT do-nothing passivism, with abrogated and replaced Old Covenant, violent solutions to the worldly challenge of evil?
