I just wrote this on my Facebook page.
I could have also shown videos of the numerous deformed children from all of the ‘depleted’ uranium we unloaded onto their country. Imagine if someone did this to US.
America has largely become a reverse-Christian nation. We don’t really love our neighbors as much as we love ourselves:
I’m amazed to still see that MANY evangelicals STILL THINK THAT AMERICA WEARS THE WHITE HAT in these reverse-Christian wars.
It actually started at the top: Dick Cheney said that our nation’s efforts “must go to the dark side” – including ignoring the Geneva Conventions.
And the atrocities committed on Iraqi civilians have been suppressed by our pro-war-and-torture media. This is just a small part of what they don’t want US to see, so they can do more wars and more countries, until we have no reputation left. The world will cheer when Russia and China take US out, perhaps 10 years from now.
Jesus said: “Those who live by the sword, die by the sword.” That’s US.

Like in Germany:‘I liked to shoot everything – women, kids… it was kind of sport’: Secret Nazi tapes reveal how ordinary German soldiers were responsible for war crimes and not just SSMy take:“Sarah Palin demonstrates why most evangelicals dissed Ron Paul, who wanted to bring the troops home. ‘Christians’ have two sets of books: one for US and one for THEM (“who don’t deserve rights”). THEY’re not our ‘neighbor’ whom Jesus commanded US to love as much as ourselves. Maybe that’s why most evangelicals refuse to investigate 9/11. If THEY didn’t take down the towers…???

Pastor Greg Boyd: In the kingdom of God, we are not allowed to have any enemies. All body-bags are equally tragic.
“The kingdom of God and the kingdom of this world are two very separate things. One uses the sword (power over) to influence people; the other uses love (power under). To understand this distinction is much easier than letting it affect the way we live.
But “we’ll lose face” if we admit we’ve been wrong and apologize. I transcribed this in my post:
Asbury Revival, 1970: “‘Dr. Kinlaw, I am a liar. Now what do I do?’ … Three days later, she came to me radiant, and she said, ‘Dr. Kinlaw, I’m free!’”
Transcribed by Jeff Fenske from this video:
A Revival Account: Asbury 1970
Dennis Kinlaw, President of Asbury College (1970) recalls this amazing event.
“A format had been developed. It started in that opening chapel. A student would give his witness. He would tell about how God was dealing with him about sin in his life. He’d make his confession. And then he would tell how God had brought forgiveness to him, and restoration. Or how the need of his heart had been met—the spiritual need.
As he would speak, there would be somebody in the audience who would say, ‘that’s like me.’ And then that person would come under conviction and come forward and kneel at the altar.
So a pattern had been developed of testimony, of sharing. Then after the testimony, prayer, and after the prayer, singing and praise and adoration. And then more witnessing, sharing how God had met human need.”
“I suppose I had been there about an hour when a young lady came up…and she walked back and knelt side of the seat where I was sitting, and looked up at me and said:
‘Dr. Kinlaw, may I talk with you?’
I said, ‘why yes.’
She said, ‘I need help…. I’m a liar’ [Dr. Kinlaw breaks up with emotion] Excuse me. Forgive me for a minute.
She said, ‘I lie so much, I don’t even know when I’m lying. I am a liar. Now what do I do?’
Well I sat there for a moment or two, and I had never said this to anybody else, but I looked at her and I said, ‘why don’t you start back to the last person you remember that you lied to. Confess it to that person, and ask him or her to forgive you.’
‘Oh,’ she said, ‘that would kill me.’
I said, ‘no, it would probably cure you.’
Three days later, she came to me radiant, and she said, ‘Dr. Kinlaw, I’m free!’
I said, ‘what do you mean, ‘you’re free.?’
She said, ‘I just hit my 34th person and I’m free [Kinlaw raises both hands in the air in the way she probably had]!’

Are we willing to follow and obey the Holy Spirit so ‘ONE’ can happen? So we can be free and then the world will know (John 17)?
