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?

Life can be just as difficult, if not more so; and one set of problems gets replaced by another.
