Their feet are swift to shed blood: Destruction and misery are in their ways: And the way of peace have they not known. There is no fear of God before their eyes.– Romans 3:15-18
Ever since a state/ church pact of blood first began – under Constantine in AD 325 – it has continued throughout the centuries and has been revived on many occasions.
But whenever deluded Christian leaders attempt to justify this, their true mission from God – to “seek and save that which is lost” – must be completely reversed:
There are Biblical warnings that those spreading lies and false teaching will “bring on themselves swift destruction“. But those consequences are brought “on themselves” through reaping the harvest of their own deeds, should they persist in them.
Yet these and similar warnings, given to avert not cause disaster, have long been misused as propaganda to justify actively bringing evil and destruction upon those in ignorance or in error. If even the disciples of Jesus had to be warned of this – then how much more do Christians of today:
…the Samaritans …did not receive Him, because His face was set for the journey to Jerusalem.
And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, “Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?”
But He turned and rebuked them and said, “You do not know what manner of spirit you are of, for the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them.” Luke 9:52-56
In 1993, a pivotal incident of this sort took place with the horrible mass murder of men, women, and children at the “Branch Davidian” sect compound in Waco, Texas. (pic above)
At the time, this was widely and publicly supported by many mainstream Christian conservative leaders – who were either blind to or unconcerned about the obvious government cover-up. To them, the end justified the means, and that means – the wholesale slaughter of women and children by government agents – was the holy wrath of God upon heretics.
The Waco events served as a key and very public moral decision-making process by Christian leaders and their followers, which soon proved to be instrumental in laying a groundwork of moral support for the “War on Terror”.
For this next bloodbath, the outright lies of propaganda again met with uncritical acceptance. Evangelism having failed in the Middle East, these lies provided all the justification needed for the wholesale invasion of countries belonging to yet another heretical group of non-Christians: The Muslims.
Under this ongoing “War on Terror” at least 150,000 innocent, non-combatant men, women, and children are estimated to have been killed – the actual figure may well exceed one million. Many, many more innocents have been grievously injured, maimed for life, or tortured.
Today, the killing continues with the blessing of mainstream Christian leaders, even as hell is unleashed from aerial drones down upon dwellings and gatherings – regardless of known innocents. Strikes are often based upon the flimsiest of hearsay evidence.
At the time of writing, the deaths of up to 10 innocent bystanders is considered acceptable per drone strike, with no need even for the routine, “rubber stamped” approval process.
