Christianity is politics.

There is an upcoming election in the United States. If you are not in her, even still you are interested, because she affects the whole earth. I am a US citizen but do not reside in the United States.
All over the world "Christians" involve themselves in politics, even though Jesus did NOT.
And the Christian faith is that people of all sorts out of all tribes and nations and tongues will be saved.
And we know, as Christians that we cannot kill our brother and love God.
So anyone involved in politics and wars of the world are NOT Christian.
That is right. Do you make up the majority of people that worry about politics and are in Christendom? Then you are a part of Satan's system of things.
Because Jesus said that Satan was the ruler of the world. And Jesus never took sides in political disputes, but said that his kingdom was "not from this source" from the world.
You are not Christian and hate how Christians can take political sides and murder each other, and force their laws on people? Then you have valid arguments. Jesus did not nor do his followers. Satan has counterfeit "Christians" that are doing all these things and leading you away from the truth.
"What is truth?" some may ask. If you have that attitude it is possible you will understand, because you really DON'T care, and don't want to.
If you are a reasoning person, and realize all of the above is rational. Then you also know that God is a God of love. And that his people must have love among each other everywhere in the world.
That is logical. So really, people who will respond to God's message are those who are reasonable, not intolerant, not extremist. They realize that love is the important factor in all things.
Not all people realize this. Do you? Then you are special. And if you don't, can you mold your thinking ability to be able to understand it? You can. You can break free from the fetters you are in, but it takes a thinking and reasonable mind. That is all. That is all that is needed.
Know this: ALL government in all countries is under Satan's control. NO person voting for office has God's approval. No religion that involves itself in politics is approved by God.
Easy to understand. Logical. Not ALL religion therefore is bad. But ALL religion expect ONE is from Satan. And if you are not of that one, then you are indeed part of Satan's system of religion. And if you don't believe in it, then perhaps that is why. But you are still mislead by Satan.
Simple, clear, logical. And not only that, when you think it through, correct. And loving. Thinking minds with eyes to see and ears to hear will be able to discern it.
Not unthinking illogical ones only bent on arguing and hate. Not those.

Or maybe you should just not comment on things you don't understand.
And stop making assumptions about my character and faith!!!
Jesus told His disciples to arm themselves
, but He also told them to respect authority unto death,
so at some point, you have to determine for yourself the appropriate course of action. Or are you ignorant of the actions of Abraham, Moses, Joshua, and David...acts of war that God sanctioned?
