---Or try in alternative this one:

---“Paul, however, does not wish us to understand his call to arms as a call to take up military weapons against our enemies.

---That’s why he describes believers as proclaiming “the gospel of peace” (Eph. 6:15).

---Nor does he wish believers to be combative in their relationships with others, since he has been emphasizing unity, edifying speech, and tenderheartedness (see especially Eph. 4:25–5:2).

---The church is to “wage peace” by employing the gospel arsenal of Christian virtues (humility, patience, forgiveness, etc.) and practices (prayer, worship).

---Such acts are strategic, pointing toward God’s grand plan to unify all things in Christ (Eph. 1:9, 10).

---How does the following quote help us understand what Paul’s military imagery should mean in our lives as believers?

---“God calls upon us to put on the armour. We do not want Saul’s armour, but the whole armour of God.

---Then we can go forth to the work with hearts full of Christ-like tenderness, compassion, and love.”—Ellen G. White, [Australasian] Union Conference

Record, July 28, 1899.”

---So Jerusalem and churches there were taken by Moslems in the 12th hundreds and you are called by European churches of the Catholic Church to go on a crusade to free Jerusalem. Must a Christian support or go? Not. Correct?

---So your church just finished building a million dollar church in a country and the local government came and shot it apart with dynamite. What should the Christian do about this tragedy? Shoot government buildings with dynamite? No. Absolutely not. The Bible forbid it. “’Revenge is Mine’, says the Lord”.

---Yes, but the Lord uses people. No, He has an allocated Day of the Lord planned for this revenge. Hell Fire in Future at the End of Time.

---When Peter wanted to kill the soldier near Jesus in Gethsemane, what did Christ told him to do? Put away your knife.

---Sometimes in interpersonal relationships we are very, very angry. What should we do? Pray for your enemies says Christ.

---Why? Because the Trinity is the Almighty Power of the Universe. They have other weapons that you cannot see: permit a heart-attack by the control of Satan over the person, permit a disease, cancer, stroke, accident to teach the person what is the right course in life.

---Have you heard of killer getting converted?

---In one country a killer killed a whole family except a very young boy. When he was married later, he returned and embraced the killer who became a Christian!

---Heaven rejoice when you do that. But it must be with a full Christian heart and no false intentions. No gain motives. Totally unselfish.

---So Paul’s war has nothing to do with one country fighting another? No. Absolutely not. It is a spiritual war and Satan and his cronies are the enemies.

---Pray for Satan? No pray for the Holy Spirit and He will take care of him.

---So are you angry with someone? Make peace. When? Immediately. Pray first.
