Should a Christian use violence? Should a Christian use lethal force? Should a Christian serve in the military and be willing to use lethal force to kill an enemy? If given the opportunity to execute Adolph Hitler, Usama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, should a Christian "take the shot"?? Is it wrong for the policeman to use necessary force,(which can be lethel force), to stop the threat of violence in the hands of the criminal? I myself will use necessary force to stop the threat of violence against the vulnerable. The primary mistake that the United States made in WW II was entering the war two years too late. The US should not have given heed to the isolationists and peace advocates, when Hitler invaded Poland. We should have entered full bore when this rabid dog first started attacking his neighbors. Perhaps there would not have been 6 million Jews and countless mentally impaired, gypsies, homosexuals, physically infirm, as well as those of other countries, brutally murdered in the concentration camps. We are again confronted with rabid dogs, abherents to fundamental Islam and willing to kill and enslave all infidels, men, women, and children. In Sudan the government is Islamic and the militia has full support of the government, and finances itself with raids and slave trade against the Christian and animist villages in the south. No man, woman or child is safe against the rabid dogs of Islamic terrorism. I would not stand by and let a mad dog enter a school yard with an AK-47, and we must not allow rabid dogs access to the vulnerable. Romans 13 1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. 5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. 6 For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. 7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour. A servant of Christ, Drew Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O'God, and renew a right spirit within me.
