While the world waits for America to join the fight against ISIS, there is little or no explanation from the Obama Administration as to why they will not move to protect the innocents.
In the early stages of the horror, ISIS militants engaged in the premeditated extermination of Christians in Iraq. Who could forget the images of these fathers, mothers and children fleeing to the tops of the mountains for safety with no food, water or weapons to protect themselves? Who can forget the images of these innocent children being raped and beheaded.
Just recently, an estimated 220 more Christian souls, including women and children, were kidnapped for which diabolical acts will be committed upon them.
On the menu for these innocents is rape, sexual slavery & suicide bombing, being burned alive in a cage, beheading and dismemberment, being used as human shields, male children being placed in child Jihadi training camps and more. The more gruesome the treatment, the more fear these satanic savages instill throughout the world.
Through history there have been wars and atrocities, however in most cases the United States of America, a “Christian” nation, came to the aid of those who could not defend themselves.
Yet, Barack Obama and John Kerry act as if these horrific atrocities are not happening. They speak as if there’s nothing to see here, move along.
It boggles the minds of thinking human beings that these two clowns really believe that if they say anything that is contrary to what we know, see, and hear, we will ignore the truth and believe their lies. Remember that Satan is the father of lies. And Satan always has a disgusting goal behind the lies that will take you, and in this case, many Americans down to the pit of Hell with them.
If you are of the deceptive opinion, as Obama is, that this Islamic ideology has nothing to do with us as Americans, I will retort that this ideology flew into the World Trade Towers, the Pentagon and sacrificed a plane of heroic souls, killing 2,996 innocents on our American soil! So do not tell me that this has nothing to do with us. It has everything to do with us! We were one of the first nations to outwardly be demonstrated that Jihad came to our doors, on to our soil, and murdered our citizens! And if you need to be reminded of the many attacks on our country and our citizens, see the record of atrocities here: Islamic Terror Attacks on American Soil and also go the bottom of this page to see what terror attacks in the world have taken place just in the last 30 days. Furthermore, see here a list of hundreds to thousands of terrorist plots against and within the US since 9/11.
With Obama pulling our forces out of other countries at the same time that he is shrinking our military forces here at home, how can we Americans have any confidence that our President who is the head of our military will protect America?
I think, at this point, we have to assume the worst as Obama who was raised in his early years in Islamic schools, has shown us that he truly does not love our nation, or the people within it.
It is difficult to determine when war would be a righteous endeavor, given that leaders of some nations could have ungodly reasons for going to war. Nevertheless, war is an unfortunate reality in this world; and it causes great destruction, misery, and loss of life. It should be avoided if possible and undertaken only as a last resort.
However, the Bible instructs us to protect the innocent, Deut. 19:10, “So innocent blood will not be shed in the midst of your land which the Lord your God gives you as an inheritance, and blood guiltiness be on you”. If we were to apply these principles to war, I would conclude that war is justifiable when it is in self-defense and/or when it is enacted to protect the innocent. Therefore, a Christian could rightfully engage in war given those conditions.
- Matthew 26:52 – Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.
- Ecclesiastes 3:8 – A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace
- Romans 13:4 – For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to [execute] wrath upon him that doeth evil.
- Psalms 28:4 – Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavors: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert.
From this we can easily conclude that going to war for a righteous cause is not a sin. That is, if it complies with the Biblical instructions of self-defense and protection of the innocent.
Whereas some may be of the opinion that we need to be concerned only with our homeland and do not want to place our soldiers at risk, others cannot fathom such an abandonment of humanity for the innocents who desperately need our help.
In a recent speech, Obama said “No religion condones the killing of innocents”. However Obama, through his own neglect to protect, does condone “the killing of innocents”. Our President is allowing Jihad against the innocents by refusing to rescue them.
