    And yet in the U.S.A. (and the U.K. and France)
    killing unborn children is OK.
    Mothers and doctors killing by abortion human babies.

    How many millions of children have been denied life since the

    Why is this not monstrous and evil? A red line that has

    Hypocrisy is the hallmark of human worldly politics.
    God and you? Are you His righthand man? The messenger boy? That doesn't sound egotistical or anything.

    It was not Syria as such which was bombed, but specific targets in Syria related to the manufacture of chemicals and chemical weapons. And there is not expected to be any further involvement.

    In all fairness, the headquarters of Planned Parenthood should now be targeted, and that half-billion dollars which was recently earmarked for them should be allocated to building that wall (which never seems to get off the ground).

    I am trying to approach understanding politics and war
    as a Christian, and not a one eyed barracker.

    The thing about politics is very much do as we say not as
    we do.

    So our side assassinates people we don't want in power, or
    ferments a coup d'état, or funds, trains and supplies insurgents,
    or engages in ongoing wars - then that is for a noble cause: invariably
    for peace, democracy, freedom, future happiness and economic prosperity.
    That worked out well in Libya and Iraq.

    But when the other side does similar [Crimea for example] then of course
    that is monstrously evil and undemocratic, blah, blah, blah ...

    As Christians we can observe the world around us and the growing
    whirlpool that is Assyria and Israel sucking in more and more armed
    conflict and nations - but it behoves us to have wisdom and to understand
    that before God the whole world is un-Godly and wicked.

    Only we who believe and live the gospel are separate from the world and
    have hope that we shall escape the wrath and judgment that is coming.
    Let us not be naïve about wars and geo-politics; for all of this is the
    outcome of our sin nature.

    2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes
    as a thief in the night.
    3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes
    upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
    4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you
    as a thief.

    Murder Is Intentional but killing might not be Intentional.
    IF you do not realize that the rebirth took place in your spirit then it can be confusing to your mind worshiping GOD standing in front of a physical mirror.

    Hey Waggles, while reading your post it reminded me of Joshua's encounter. I know whose side I'm on!

    Joshua 5:13, 14 (NIV)

    The Commander of the Army of the Lord

    13 Now when Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand. Joshua went up to him and asked, “Are you for us or for our enemies?”

    14 “Neither,” he replied, “but as commander of the army of the Lord I have now come.” Then Joshua fell face down to the ground in reverence, and asked him, “What message does my Lord have for his servant?”

    When all these countries, including my own country, war against each other, the side I choose is The Lord's.

    We all know everything is going downhill and very few countries have God’s people in
    leadership. Even where some politicians are born again Christians they are not in
    a position to have a major say in what happens. There are board member, advisors,
    militory, other politicians, cabinet officials etc.

    The best we can hope for is the non Christian governments with ulterior motives, who at least
    don’t go around bombing, nuking and gasing people just because they like it and get a
    kick out of it. Can at least try to keep those who do like it, in check for a season.

    Seasons is really what we are talking about here, it happened in the bible and then
    just at the right time - Jesus came into the world.

    Its happening again, wars, rumours of wars. The best we can expect is the checks
    and balances of world powers, until just at the right time, Jesus will return again.

    In the meantime we watch, wait, pray and discuss.
