DIED IN THE WAR FRONT?
- faith SteemChurch
If a Christian died in the war front, could it be said he died in the will of God?
'Who would say this' is the question.
Some use the name of God, plus 'war,' to simply murder and steal. God sees through this and so should Christians.
Victor, with all due respect, these war and voilence questions are somewhat depressing. How about limiting it to one, well considered and happy SteemChurch question per day please.
Many times we're forced to do things that ordinarily we would not, as we know that God is a God of war but he admonished us to live at peace with all men and leave vengeance to him. In my understanding, if we trodden under feet the commandments of God and tries to establish our own righteousness, we do such at our detriment.
If a follower of Christ engage in a war for vengeance, and probably die in that war front, don't you think he died disobeying the instruction of the master?
Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus. Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?
John 18:10-11 (KJV)
Instead of dying in the war front revenging for thyself, why not try this wonderful advise from the master?
But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, ( you can put your nation, continent etc here) till the Son of man be come. Matthew 10:23 (KJV)
Thanks for the question beloved brother Victor, may the Lord console you over the demise of your brother.
