Being a Christian in a Time of War
Every generation must face the reality of war. It's not a reality that we like to face, but face it we must. And we must, you and I, must learn to face it as Christians, because handling the realities of life is what discipleship to Jesus is all about.
Being a Christian in wartime is always learned the hard way. War is not an original part of God's plan for this earth. It came about when sin entered this world, and men and women began to rage against God, and then began to rage against each other. In this fallen world, we must learn the hard way how to be a Christian in wartime, whether we go to war or whether the war comes to us.
