When Are christians Permitted to KILL and Can A Christian Be A Soldier? by HardMirror(m): 8:49pm On Feb 04, 2017
The days of fighting physical battles is over, in fact if the bible is to be followed, it is even a sin to take vengeance in any form. The New testament makes it clear that gone are the days of an eye for an eye. It is the age of turning the left cheek when the right cheek is slapped. It is an age of fighting with spiritual weapons. It is an age of evangelism and not warfare.

There seems to be Absolutely NO REASON why a christian should be a soldier. Jesus would certainly from at any of his sheep throwing bombs at souls he created.

What are your thoughts on this?

Can a soldier indeed go to heaven if killed in warfare? Can a christian be a soldier?





IS THERE ANY TIME A CHRISTIAN IS PERMITTED TO KILL? CAN A CHRISTIAN KILL IN SELF DEFENSE?

Scriptures?
Cos I don't think so. Every murderer will go to hell. Whose orders should a christian follow? God or man? Jesus would NEVER permit a man to kill another man.

Why I love Jehovah witnesses. They don't have any business with politics or military.

Luke 3:14

And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.

"Coughs" I love this


Most great men of God are actually murderers
Let's start from Abraham (went to free lot killed them like madmad)
Moses...the Egyptian..red sea
Joshua Caleb. Soldiers . liberated the land filled with milk and honey
Samuel Saul. The amalekites
David..... Philistines customer Dada... Heard he is head of choristers in heaven.


I can go on

Even Matthew killed with his pen.....( polithiefcian....taxed like mad)
And he walked with the saviour



Brother it's a job. As far as our mind is set with the saviour inside no wahala. I will even anoint my bullets so that e go dey target like heat seeker.

So what if your commanding officer orders the soldier to kill? What about soldiers sent for "peace keeping" who kill during such operations?
Following orders is part of being in the military. Or are you christians just confused?

And thus Mr Cummando exists the thread shamefully after trying to re-write the bible to accommodate "christian" "murderers".

This means christians actually endorse wars and murders in the guise of the military. Talk of authoritative sinning.

I don't see you quoting any scriptures yet. I only see you glorying in murders which your God wld judge with hell fire. When last have you won a soul to christ? Have you taken time to win muslims to Jesus? How many converts do you have? God would not reward you for lives you killed, he would reward you for lives you saved. I guess you don't read your bible.

I remember an incidence, I was still a christian then. I told an elderly man that Jesus can't be happy with soldiers, the man realizing that christians wld be defenseless without the military rushed to defend "christian" soldiers, but I noticed his defense was not based on the bible but fire of how vulnerable christians are without the military. It is obvious than man made all these laws and God has nothing to do with christianity.

Exactly! Love that scripture. Unfortunately many fools quote it just to appear wise but in actual sense, they are so stuupid, they can't present intelligent argument, so they quote proverbs 26:4.

Is it wrong for governmental authorities to execute a murderer ?All murder is killing but not all killing is murder. Murder involves killing unlawfully with premeditated malice.
