Is It Time for War?

Is It Time for War?

Christians are called to be as wise as serpents and as harmless as doves (Matt. 10:7). We are called to love our enemies and be peacemakers. We are taught not to resist an evil person but to turn the other cheek.

But what happens when evil starts threatening our country, our loved ones, and their lives? What happens after that second mile? What should we do if the picture is way bigger than only our personal welfare?



Persecution, whether of Christians or of people of other religions, is not always a purely religious matter— dare I say it is rarely a purely religious matter. Greed for money and power are often hidden but causative factors for atrocities committed in the name of God. Those who are persecuted sadly are just (treated as) worthless lives that can be trifled with for selfish agendas

Squeeze Pt. 2: Savio

In the previous part of “Squeeze,” we read the testimony of a young man who had to leave his home due to the persecution he faced. Undoubtedly, all that Christians in a similar situation face up to that point is dreadful. However, leaving one’s home is not the end of the story; and building one’s life after is no easy matter either. Life can be just as difficult, if not more so; and one set of problems gets replaced by another.

There is no doubt that persecution against Christians exists. In a world with continuously increasing turmoil, ever-present feelings of disgust and hatred towards Christians abound.
