“Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.” – Henry Kissinger

Picture if you will, Jesus.

Jesus and Gun


Can you imagine Jesus firing a machine gun at a group of people? Can you picture Jesus in an F-16 lobbing missiles at innocents?

Do you see Jesus piloting a drone and killing Muslims, other non-believers, or anyone for that matter? Can you picture Jesus as a sniper?


Because if God loved wars, He’d be wrong; but He’s not wrong, so He doesn’t love wars.


Some point to the various killings in the Old Testament to somehow “prove” that God always had a blood lust, and that He often commanded the ancient Hebrews to kill in wars.

What they don’t understand is that the Hebrews then were an extension of God’s army on earth. God used them to remove the wicked from the face of the earth. So when they killed on God’s order in specific and directed circumstances – which cannot be transferred to today’s circumstances –  it was God’s doing, not theirs.

“The LORD your God is the one who goes with you, to fight for you…” Deuteronomy 20:4

But, as the prophet Zechariah prophesied, with the advent of Christ everything would change.

” ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty.” Zechariah 4:6


Now it’s no longer by the might of the sword nor by the power of one’s army, but by the Spirit of Christ that things truly change for the better.

“The wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.” James 1:20

Ever since Jesus’s birth, death, and resurrection the world has not been the same.

“If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” 2 Corinthians 5: 17

If anyone really knows Christ, he knows there is no such thing as a Just War or a Just War Doctrine.  Jesus’s sacrifice on the cross was for the renewal of the world through peace – hence His name, the Prince of Peace – and for the salvation of man’s soul through the New Covenant in His blood – hence life eternal, not death and destruction.

Then Jesus said to him, ‘Put your sword back into its place; for all those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword.’ ” Matthew 26: 52

“You have heard that it was said, ‘AN EYE FOR AN EYE, AND A TOOTH FOR A TOOTH.’ But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.…” Matthew 5: 38,39

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.” Matthew 5: 43-45

“If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them.” Luke 6:32

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” Matthew 5:9


If everyone understood Christ, there would be no war. Unfortunately, many don’t. Therefore, every so often an aggressive war to dominate and subjugate others may come about.

In such an instance, the only country that can claim the moral high ground is the defending country, whose governing authority has a divine mandate to defend its citizenry from the onslaught of wrongdoers and aggressors.

“The authorities that exist have been established by God...for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason… They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.” Romans 13: 2,4

That’s why, in any given war, the aggressor always tries to camouflage its belligerent intentions by projecting a semblance of moral superiority before embarking on its dark deed.

And though the government of the defending country has a godly injunction to protect its people, its better option, for the good of all, would be to avoid a devastating war at all costs.

“Strive for peace with everyone…” Hebrews 12:14

“It is to one’s honor to avoid strife.” Proverbs 20:3


Those who push for war in our time cleverly conceal through propaganda their ulterior motives, and the reality of war’s devastating effects on humanity.

1) Dead innocents. 95% of all war casualties are innocent civilians. What if you were one of those civilians?

“Their feet run to evil, And they hasten to shed innocent blood; Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity, Devastation and destruction are in their highways.” Isaiah 59:7

2) Hidden agenda. In war there’s always a hidden agenda that the public at large is never aware of: territorial expansion, control of another country’s resources, control of access to trade to favor a certain group, currency domination, keeping the military industrial machine humming, etc. In one word: Money or Mammon.

“Who devise evil things in their hearts; They continually stir up wars.” Psalm 140:2

3) Personal dislike. If a foreign country’s leader refuses to kowtow to the current Empire’s whims and wishes, then the Empire (presently the US, manipulated or not by third parties) goes on the attack. That foreign country’s leader is sullied in the Empire’s mass media in order to prepare the imperial citizenry to acquiesce in sending their children to be killed in a senseless war. More often than not, such a war tees off by way of a false flag operation (such as 9/11 and the Gulf of Tonkin incident), designed and executed by the Empire to deceive its citizens and demonize the adversary.

“All wars are based on deception,” wrote Sun Tzu in The Art of War.

“Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil.” Proverbs 12:20

4) Senseless aggression. There is no greater act of stupidity than when soldiers on the aggressor’s side kill for no apparent reason. They obey like dumb myrmidons just because low-life politicians with hidden agendas decide they should murder those their government hates. In all other circumstances, their senseless killings of the defending soldiers and of innocent civilians would and should be called terrorism.

“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” Romans 12:21

5) Economic breakdown. Countries that go to war not only destroy the economies of the nations they attack, but they also wreck theirs.

“Whoever satisfies others will himself be satisfied.” Proverbs 11:25

“So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.” Matthew 7:12

“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” Galatians 6:7

6) Godlessness. In the aftermaths of wars people rebuild and forget God. Europe suffered two World Wars, and the Christian foundation on which that civilization was built has been severely shaken and is in dire need of repair – the Church there is in a coma.

“Sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.” James 1:15

7) Blowback. Countries that participate in aggressive wars or send their soldiers to kill in foreign wars are at the receiving end of wars’ repercussions. Destructive heresies and habits quickly materialize and drastically alter their societies for the worst: atheism, feminism, mammonism, drug use, suicide (especially by veterans whose consciences are disturbed because of the murders they committed), societal violence, destruction of the family unit, perversion, etc. In other words, the souls of those who participate in and/or agree to these aggressive wars are plunged into darkness or spiritual death, which then engenders ruins in the natural world.

“For the wages of sin is death.” Romans 6:23


If non-Christians want to become murderers and/or kill themselves in foolish, aggressive wars, that’s their free-will prerogative. But we, true Christians, will opt out as we fight for peace with all our strength.

“Thou shall not kill.” Exodus 20:13

If you are in the military and you say you’re a Christian, start taking all of the aforementioned verses seriously and begin to think for yourself, especially if your country is the aggressor.

If it is, immediately put this into practice:

“They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks.” Isaiah 2:4

  1. Jesus said something along these lines, in Matthew 10:34 – “Think not that I have come to bring peace, I have come to bring a sword and to set people against each other.”

    Very prophetic, Christianity must be the most dividing and divisive religion ever, with more different sects than any other religion, or at least more antagonistic sects, e.g. numerous Roman Catholic sects vs. even more competing Protestant sects.

    The Sermon on the Mount is all very nice, but has never had much influence on Christians generally, many of whom turn more often to the Old Testament god of violence than fragments of the New Testament which promote peace.

    I agree with your personal desire for peace – which I too personally desire as an atheist, or really a pantheist – but I object to your belief that Christianity has answers, when the reality is exactly what Jesus is purported to have said about “bringing a sword”.

    Islam is currently being portrayed as a massive split between Shia and Sunni, but it never used to be that way before such Christian empires as London, Paris and Washington got involved in the division and conquest of the ME for oil and the petro-dollar.

    You are very blinkered and enormously biased in favour of your brand of Christian/US//Washington global hegemony.

    Well stuff your “Bible-belt” ideology, your Christian Empire of Chaos is destroying the World.


    • Your comment is so full of assumption about us, it’s sad – though you are right about certain warmongering factions within Christianity. Rest assured they’re NOT Christians, no matter what they say.

      Anyway, to answer your astounding ignorance and sheer incompetence in handling the word of God, let us draw your attention to why Jesus spoke the verses of Matthew 10: 34-36 (i.e., of bringing a sword):

      Read the article Jesus and the Sword.

      Further, Christ commanded Christians not to get involved in wars. We plainly delineate it in this article.

      “Put your sword back in its place,” Jesus said to him, “for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.” Matthew 26:52

      We are addressing Christians, like Christ was addressing HIS followers, which obviously you are NOT. Therefore, since you are NOT HIS follower, you can’t hear His voice and you can’t understand what He commands.

      “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow My voice.” John 10:26

      So you don’t know Christ (even though He knows you since He died for you). Consequently, you can’t understand what He’s talking about and can’t see the answers that Christianity provides.

      And hatefully accusing the totality of Christians whom you don’t know doesn’t make you an atheist or a pantheist, it makes you a hatemonger who hates because apparently you can’t understand the bible.

      Last, if you had perused our site, you’d have realized that we’re none of those things you wrongly assume us to be. Read Israel: the Scourge of Empires and The Greatest Injustice of the 20th Century or The Demonization of Arabs and Muslims.

      Seriously, my friend, you should keep your tongue in check and get your facts straight before spewing your venom.

      “So also the tongue is a small part of the body, and yet it boasts of great things. See how great a forest is set aflame by such a small fire! And the tongue is a fire, the very world of iniquity; the tongue is set among our members as that which defiles the entire body, and sets on fire the course of our life, and is set on fire by hell.…” James 3: 5,6

      You should repent of your sins, give up on Satan and his stupid ideologies of atheism and pantheism (you are so confused dude, how can you be both? Jeez!) and come join the true God of peace and love:

      It’s not too late to become part of God’s family.


  2. Great points. I’m specially thinking of the war in Vietnam and the drug explosion that took place in the US because of that war. Well done.


  3. All Wars are truly evil. Think about it. People go in the Army to train to KILL. How sick is that? Thank you BI.


    • I agree as you say that “all wars are evil” but perhaps because of this inextricably uncontrollable evil emanating from the racist and murderous Zionist Israel and what BI correctly connoted its characteristic as “The scourge of Empires”, in which peace has proven impossible with this apartheid Zionist entity-thanks to the U.S. governments in keeping her fully armed and rearmed to perpetuate aggression, occupation, colonization, and ultimate Zionisation in occupied Palestine-thus, war becomes inevitable to totally extirpate the devilish roots of this Zionist scourge by invoking Jesus’: “I am come to send fire on the earth; and would that it were already kindled!” (Luke 12:49) and “…He that hath no sword let him sell his garment and buy one” (Luke 22:36). “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I come not to send peace, but a sword” (Matt. 10:34).

      All this ongoing Zionist terror and crimes since the 1940’s can perhaps be read as justifying to embark upon a crusade to once and for all put a stop to such catalogs of Zionist horrors and atrocities, though I am aware of the deeper lesson that war itself is a crime-and that the real crime of war is not genocide, but the far broader bestiality which embraces genocide and which we can label Innocenticide, the slaughter of the Innocents.


      • In general, those verses you quoted are either mistranslated, misunderstood, or taken out of context. For one thing, it’s not meant to be “earth” but land. See what Jesus was talking about here.

        As for the Zionists, God will take care of them as He sees fit. Gandhi defeated England without firing a shot. Segregation in the US and Apartheid in South Africa were defeated without wars. So it’s possible to likewise defeat Zionism.

        But, like we say in the article, if non-Christians want to kill themselves in war, that’s their free will prerogative. But we’ll continue to pray for Zionism’s downfall peacefully – though we are quite aware that the Zionists are itching for a major regional war, and that they are powerful enough to make it happen. One way or the other, their downfall is guaranteed.


  4. Couldn’t agree more. War is a barbarity that mankind should abandon forever.
