What should be
my response to the war in Iraq?
What does the Bible say about war?
Some of my family is overseas in the military, what can I do
here at home?
Many people are asking these questions and more about the
subject of war and the Christian's response. On one hand, we
know we are to love peace, pursue peace and pray for peace. We
often hear that war is always wrong and no Christian should
participate. Others tell us that Christians need to be vigilant
in defeating evil for the glory of God.
Where do we go to find the answers to these questions? Not
from the doves, who refuse war. Not from the hawks, who want
war. Not from the owls, who philosophize about war. Not from the
sparrows, who are afraid of war. The only place we can go for
answers is God's Word.
We know that the leaders of our nation appreciate your continued
prayers, as do the men and women who are fighting this battle
for freedom. And please don't forget to pray that God would save
those who are lost in this conflict.
Also, individuals within the military have contacted LWF for
materials and we are currently mailing out these resources to
our troops as requested. Would you ask God to use the truth that
these men and women receive to save and sanctify them and bring
glory to God?
