OK, NOW I'M P.O.'d
Rapture Ready: The Unauthorized Christians United for Israel Tour from huffpost and Vimeo
In the video above, we find people claiming to be Christians yet ignoring the teachings of Christ. Forgetting the fact that we are called to be peacemakers. A pre-emptive strike (in this case against Iran) is perhaps on of the most un-Christian ideas of all. Even throughout the Church's history, the only real alternative to pacifism is a just war theory - which seeks peace first and never allows for the 'morality' of a pre-emptive strike.
The anti-Christ doctrine espoused here also cannot be found in the Church's history.
Why must some Christians abandon the teachings of their God in order to justify other teachings (or what they believe to be teachings) of their scriptures?
