If we are commanded by God, to love thy enemy, then are we defying Him when we go to war?


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!)

    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".

    I try hard to understand the complete Bible and sometimes these things make me question it. Thanks for your answer.
