Romans 12: 9-21 ; thoughts on the Just War theory.

March 1, 2011

Romans 12:9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.

17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. 20 On the contrary:

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Romans 12:9-21 (NIV)

War is never Just. I often wonder if the Just War Theory is just the Christianized version of Jihad…

Andrew Jones and Tim Challies

January 10, 2008
Tim apparently wrote a book and some of those out in the Blogosphere seemed to not think he was qualified to do so… Justin Taylor’s blog becomes the Steve Camp jousting grounds again…

Now, mind you John MacArthur read the book and seemed to disagree with Steve Camp:

From the Foreword:

“Tim Challies is uniquely qualified to write on the subject. I don’t know of a more reliable or more prolific commentator on the contemporary evangelical scene. His weblog is a favorite stop for thousands of Christian readers every day. His book reviews and his comments on evangelical trends are consistently even-handed, thorough yet succinct, and full of perceptive insights… The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment is a truly important work—one that should be required reading not only for church leaders, but for all sober-minded laypeople as well.”
Dr. John MacArthur Pastor-Teacher, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, CA
John MacArthur against Steve Camp… who wudda thunk! LOL!
Now, Tim is making the blog rounds and has met on Andrew Jones blog. Here is the interview. Note also that there will be more to this blog tour.

This seems like it could be interesting as emerging bloggers and MacArthurite bloggers clash over whether they really believe in the priesthood of all believers.

Be blessed,

Tony Jones is Reformed! But then who will listen when we have MacArthurites to say Tony is not…

New Posters From the People of "Grace to You"

August 5, 2007

Interestingly as i look over these new posters… I can’t help but want them to make more! I mean with each one we see a spiralling down in that they reveal each dark chamber of their own heart and their own doctrine.

Remember these are the “Grace to you” people doing this! Grace to you… seems to have become a mocking ground to put down others.

So, let them keep pumping them out. They show they care little for truth and even less for compassion and have lost sight completely of this “Grace to You”.

You see they are upset that they were responded to by these more accurate posters.

It seems it is only “Grace to You” if you agree with John MacArthur. Otherwise it is just a poke in your eye.

This is really sad and people need to start praying against this sort of harm against the Body of Christ.

Be Blessed,

(Update: Dan, we do notice things like that you turn off the “comments links” on your page. It seems a little dishonest, but expected. )

Matt 26: 67-68
Then they spit in his face and struck him with their fists. Others slapped him and said, “Prophesy to us, Christ. Who hit you?”

Romans 8: 16-17
The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.
Now if we are children, then we are heirs–heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.


Matt 5: 38-48
“”You have heard that it was said, `Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.
“You have heard that it was said, `Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect. “
