TODAY’S GUEST: Dr. Scott Lively is a pastor, author of many books, has advocated and modeled the Biblical worldview as a writer, speaker, attorney, pastor, human rights consultant, and missionary for more than 30 years on five continents.
After all that’s occurred in 2020, we need to cultivate an eternal perspective and pray for wisdom to see world events through the lens of Scripture. Wickedness is rampant and lawlessness is increasing.
Should believers in Christ fight evildoers and if so, how?
Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. James 4:7-8
Read the contrast between the baby Jesus of the Christmas story and the Conquering King returning as a Warrior:
Why CHRISTIANS Must FIGHT the EVILDOERS – Scott Lively writes, as a Christian pastor, he is,
“confident in my authority to fight under the banner of Christ for the preservation of this God-blessed Republic and the (indirectly) Bible-based Constitution on which it stands, through an organization that is not overtly evangelical any more than the Continental Army was. As a modern member of the Black Robed Regiment I do not hesitate to fight on a secular battlefield for victories in this world that produce major but largely unseen parallel spiritual victories, just as the forming of this nation did.”
Jesus Himself said in Matthew 10:34 “Do not assume that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.” The notion that Jesus came to establish world peace (prior to the Millennial Kingdom) is actually a misrepresentation of the Christmas story as told in Luke.
