All that you Need to Know about Pacifism for a Christian
Evangelical Christians have a different line of thinking that is different from other Christians. They do not agree with the idea of sending aids to the poor countries, try to contradict what we think is wrong and they are on the first line to preach of the superiority of the white race over other races. The evangelical Christians also support the use of the military to areas where there is no peace to restore peace and excessive use of military force Peaceful diplomacy should be tried and can work effectively where there would be no loss of lives that God himself created.
People always say that when you are attacked, you can use force to make sure that you are safe and your property is also protected. This could mean even if it would result to the death of the attacker. People also say that it is a way of punishing the person for their deeds that they have chosen to do. from the bible, we learn that every person is created according to the will of God and in the image of God and therefore we have no authority to kill or think that we are better than others. The life of a human being is worth than the money that they tried to steal hence the need to try and avoid harm or killing others.
When people think of pacifists, they will tend to think that because they do not use violence for violence, they will let the other take advantage of them to the point of harming them. It is not right to think that because bloodshed is not the only way that you can use to have resolution to your problems. There is a difference between being a pacifist and a pushover.
When we look back to history, we will realize that there are so many people who used pacifism to solve their problems and they achieved greater things than they have by deciding to fight for their rights literally as this company can show . These people who did not fight back to resolve their conflict are among others; Mahatma Gandhi of India, Martin Luther King of the US and Jesus Christ. They all were oppressed, mistreated and abused in their verge to achieve what they had in mind and they did not give up nor did they resolve to using violence and in the end they reaped from their determination.
It was through struggle and violence and loss of human life that our country got its independence. Because of this we think that the use of violence will give us what we need. What we get in the end is not profitable at all. To see God’s Kingdom, we need to love each other no matter what the circumstance.
