By now we all have heard of the couple who shot and killed 14 people in San Bernadino and wounded others as well. These two decided to kill anyone who doesn’t share their position on Islam because, according to them, such is the fate of unbelievers. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the message saints carry into the world with the hope of saving souls (Romans 1:15-16; 1 Corinthians 1:20-31, 9:16; 2 Cor. 2:12; 2 Timothy 1:8-11).
There are many who don’t accept the gospel of Jesus Christ (1 Peter 4:17; Galatians 1:6-7). When that happens, our next move isn’t murdering them, but leaving them alone and taking the gospel to someone else who will appreciate it (Acts 19:8-10, 18:5-11; Matthew 15:13-14, 10:11-15). Christians don’t have the right to declare war on the whole world if the message of Jesus Christ is rejected by man. Instead, allow the day of Judgment to deal with those who reject the Lord (2 Thessalonians 1:5-10; John 12:48; Matt. 13:24-30; Jude 14-16; 2 Cor. 5:10).
So shooting up a place or blowing up a place, is murder and it is to be condemned (Matt. 5:21).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
