    In another place it says, This is not my kingdom, if it was I would fight for it. That was the man saying that, His buddys would have died for him, but he told them put up your swords.

    Dude you got it right, I spent twenty years in the ministry till I got so tired of rich preachers getting richer at the cost of the poor. They pushed Jesus right out of the church for the positive confession and delusion of getting rich by giving your bill money away.

    Testosterone on parade. Gotta be manly to protect all the wimmen an’ chillen.
    A society predicated on the assumption that everyone in it should want to get rich is not well situated to become either ethical or imaginative.

    Meanwhile, in Eastern Washington:
    Rep. Matt Shea Promotes Group Training Child Soldiers for Holy War

    On Wednesday the Spokesman-Review and the Guardianpublished an update on Rep. Matt Shea's relationship to right wing extremist groups who are actively preparing for holy war.Shea is a Republican state representative in Spokane Valley who wants to secede from Washington in order to found a new Christian theocracy called Liberty, and who believes that Muslims and antifa have joined forces in an attempt to establish "counter-states" inside the U.S.
    Last year Shea wrote and distributed a document called "the Biblical Basis for War," which instructs Christians to "kill all males" if their opponents (gay people and those who support abortion) do not "yield" following the collapse of the American government, which Shea believes is imminent

    Seems to me GOD would keep people safe from harm inside a house of worship. HE would render guns dysfunctional, the building fireproof, etc.

    Wouldn't that be the least he could do?

    Let me see, after folks are trained to defend their church, they volunteer at their church, and the church continues to pay the training company - am I missing something here, or are we seeing a guy profiting from fear ?

    I am not sure that the main line church even knows who Jesus is or really was. There is a couple of very large churches in Oklahoma and Texas That teach people not to go to the doctor or get vaccinated for anything, that shows a lack of faith. Billy Joe Daugherty from Tulsa taught that if you lived right you would never be sick. We he got sick, they flew him out of the state under a false name to put him in a hospital where he died. Don't tell me about Hypocrites.

    If you get sick go to the damn doctor, they are there for a reason and I assume you have a brain and know the docs are here for a reason, I believe a disciple was called a physician. Trust God all you want but be ready to accept his answer if you refuse help. If you wait till the final stages of anything, don't blame God for that. Read a bit about Paul's affliction and God's answer to him. As I tried to teach long ago, sometimes God says no. A time and place wait for us all.
