Modern righteousness

The topic was the creation of religious excuses for laws prohibiting self defense but the same points can be made about other hot issues that tear our society apart. See the post Christianity and Family Defense on the SurvivalBlog.com:

“To misapply scripture taken out of context is the number one reason most of our churches today are apostate.”

“let’s look at another concept– fairness vs righteousness. When a man fights another man, we tend to think that it should be a “fair” fight. If it’s a fist fight, there should be no knives. If it’s a knife fight, there should be no guns, and so forth. However, that is not how God looks at it. We should not fight unless the cause is righteous. Righteousness is the standard that God and godly men use to determine if we should even be involved in a fight.”

“Those that are too afraid to do what is righteous and right have a special place reserved for them in hell.”

“If you want to learn more about this concept, the first resource is, of course, the Bible. From the beginning to the end, it is filled with stories of God and God’s people righteously using aggression and violence to protect themselves and those who can’t protect themselves. It is also filled with stories of those who inappropriately used violence and aggression to further their own desires and the punishment that God reserves for such abuses.”

The Bible does not tell us to lie down and let evil be. Remember the hymn Onward Christian Soldiers? “The hymn’s theme is taken from references in the New Testament to the Christian being a soldier for Christ (wikipedia).” Christianity is not all passive and submissive.
