DIED IN THE WAR FRONT?

If a Christian died in the war front, could it be said he died in the will of God?

Answers 2

'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.

    Thank you SIRKNIGHT for your answer. Limiting questions to once a day that is noted. However, there are internal and external wars going on in some parts of the world which the press dont write about. Many do not know what is going on. These killings are target at Christians most a times. There is no day you would not watch or hear innocent people being killed or being rounded up and taken to a place of no return. There are people who look up to me for answers to their questions just as I look up to you dear Sirknight. What should the righteous do? Be happy in the face all these? That I will try. Grace works. My elder brother is in the mortuary. The first son of my father. Died in very disgusting way. I am planning to bury him Feb 6th.
  • Dear Victor - I am sorry for your losses and your pain. Here and now in your comment you have spoken from the HEART and now I understand your question... now I want to be involved in a discussion with you. YES, Christians are being murdered and yes we do need to bring this to the attention of the world. But we need to know where and when and who? And 'Yes' - what should the righteous do? So put your heart and your soul into the questions you ask. Tell your story. Educate us. This is much more interesting and important than a generic question about war, or dying, or witches. Show us this passion in your questions and you will go far. I hope your brother's funeral is loving and memorable. Stay strong friend. SirKnight.

    Thanks for your understanding. The burial is coming up on February 6, 2020. I will making about 80 t0 90 miles away for the burial in my home town. Prayers.

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.
