Throughout history, man has conquered nations in the name of Jesus or their God, yet we are told to love all. How are we being true to God if we so readily take up arms for political and social issues. (Hoping to hear from several on this one, especially Gusser!)

Great explantion of the difference. Did not think of it that way when I asked. Thanks!
I am really sensitive to the Native American Indian issues of how they were first approached. Our forefathers stripped them of the land, dignity and spirit as well as family and culture, all because they thought them as "heathens".
That's just another trump card in my story....
Some of our forefathers treated native Americans as equals. Our History books are sometimes very inaccurate.
Gusser: Consider the PROPORTIONS and the INFLUENCE!!! I'm sure that MANY of the people in Germany, in the 1940s, were very nice and fair-minded about their Jewish neighbors....
I am well aware the many were nice to the Indians back then, but the government as a whole gave them a dirty deal...all because they did not understand. I walk the Red Road, but Jesus and His teachings walk with me. Scary being American these days!
Totally agree on the raw deal from Gov't. My comment was concerning private citizens.
I suppose, sometimes it becomes a gray line...
It has been a very long time since we had a government doing the will of the people. Since about the 1790's sounds about right.
I try hard to understand the complete Bible and sometimes these things make me question it. Thanks for your answer.
Your search for understanding will lead to many blessings.
what an easy excuse to justify an act of terror and war by saying that God commanded it. Would Jesus have given those same instructions. By the way there is no evidence that Moses ever existed and non to say that they were ever in Eygpt as slaves.
