Pacifism is a rapidly growing weakness in the Body of Christ today. Hardly anything pleases Satan more.
Pacifism systematically weakens the church, culling believers out of the world early and reducing the number of Christians on Earth. Today's churches often have women teaching men, and it's not the women's fault. It's because men are no longer leaders. Men are no longer Godly. Men no longer read Scripture. Men no longer do the job that God ordained them to do.
Nowhere is that lack of leadership more insidious than when a weak, pacifist Christian male says he will step in front of his wife if a rapist and murderer ever tries to attack her and instead of mounting a physical defense, he will quote Bible verses.
The response of a Godly woman to that would be, "I'd rather be defended than be second in line to a murder."
A Godly man stops violence. An unGodly pacifist prolongs it.A Godly man protects his little baby from physical harm. An unGodly pacifist would never lift a finger because it's much easier and safer to be pious than to be a father and risk injury.A Godly man knows that self-defense is not violence but it might have to be violent. An unGodly pacifist is never happier than when Bible verses are quoted while the innocent are maimed.
Does "turn the other cheek" mean what the pacifist (and many Pastors today) say it means? Does it mean we are not to lift a finger to stop the innocent from being harmed? What does God really say about self-defense? What did God have to say to Jesus' disciples who were packing weapons? ("Go get a few more.")
Sitting in a nice church building all fat and happy makes it easy to sit back and adopt a touchy-feely, girly, phony Biblical pacifist worldview in males. God has other things to say. There is a spiritual battle going on all around us both in the Heavens and on earth. The entire Bible is a battle manual.
And not just the Old Testament. Muc...
