Real Christians do NOT War or Kill people – No self defense

A true follower of Jesus Christ does not take up the weapon to defend himself or to kill somebody else. He does not go to war. Jesus commanded us not to resist an evil man. We read in Matthew 5:39 ”do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.” Matthew 5:39.

If we follow Jesus we obey Him. He defends His own if He so wishes. When they came to arrest Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane one of those with Him pulled a sword and struck the high priest’s servant and cut off his ear. Jesus told him to put back his sword, He said to him: “all those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword.”Matthew 26:52

If we follow Jesus Christ we do not murder, we do not kill, we do not defend ourselves, we trust in Him to look after us. A child of God does not need a gun to defend himself, he does not murder of kill, he does not abort babies. There is no justification for a child of God to harm anybody else.

Jesus said: “Do unto others as you wish them to do unto you.” If we do not obey Jesus Christ we cannot call Him Lord because He said:”Why do you call Me Lord and do not what I say?”

If we follow Jesus Christ, we obey Him and we trust Him for our safety. I come from South Africa where they will kill you for a cell phone. Many people get killed. I did not own a gun and Jesus protected us, me and my family. But, the pastor down the road got car jacked one Sunday afternoon and he picked up a rock to hurl it at the robbers that took his car. They shot him in the neck and he died on the spot. My son who had gone for a stroll saw all of this happening saw all of this happen from 40 yards away. That same son has been car jacked twice already at gun point, he did not resist and he is still alive.

If we belong to Jesus, we trust in Him and He protects His own. If we take it on ourselves to defend ourselves then He does not protect us. Those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword.

May Jesus bless you.
