Shooting a police officer because he is an authority figure is flat out wrong! Yet, that is what the nation saw a few days ago in west Philadelphia. Across the globe there are those who say they can kill in the name of their God, all because someone doesn’t convert to what they are preaching.
That is a red flag in the face of every person who listens to someone teaching that unbelievers should die. Students are being taught to commit murder, because it cannot be classified as anything else (Romans 13:9-10). This doctrine isn’t the work of the Lord, meaning it isn’t true doctrine; rather it is false doctrine (Matthew 7:15). Secondly, the laws of the USA permit the freedom of worship, but it doesn’t permit killing those who don’t comply with a sermon.
Teaching the word of God is fine, but if a listener informs that they aren’t interested, the teachers must leave them alone! The teacher should find someone else who is willing to sit down and listen. But at no time should a person plan on killing in the name of God because there is no such thing (John 8:34-44; Jeremiah 23:30-32).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
