FAST FOOD (2018): Ninth Helping
We are disciples of Jesus who commanded us to, “Love your enemies.”
It is governments that kill their enemies.
We are disciples of Jesus who commanded us, “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you, if your enemy is hungry give him to eat, if he is thirsty give him to drink.“
It is governments that hate, starve, oppress their enemies, let them suffer and die of thirst and make it the crime of treason punishable by death “to give aid and comfort to the enemy” (U. S. Constitution, Article III, Sec 3).
Are there really Christian theologians and writers, popes, cardinal, bishops, priests and ministers who would teach that when governments engage in the activities mentioned above, it is morally consistent with the teaching and Way of Jesus for a follower of Jesus to participate in such activities? Why would any Christian who believes Jesus is his or her Lord, God and Savior believe them and follow them instead of Jesus?
