Many people make the mistake of reading what the Bible says in Exodus 20:13, “You shall not kill,” and then seeking to apply this command to war. However, the Hebrew word literally means “the intentional, premeditated killing of another person with malice; murder.” God often ordered the Israelites to go to war with other nations (1 Samuel 15:3; Joshua 4:13). God ordered the death penalty for numerous crimes (Exodus 21:12, 15; 22:19; Leviticus 20:11). So, God is not against killing in all circumstances, but only murder. War is never a good thing, but sometimes it is a necessary thing. In a world filled with sinful people (Romans 3:10-18), war is inevitable. Sometimes the only way to keep sinful people ( this generation ) from doing great harm to the innocent is by going to war.
Does Jesus’ teaching that we should turn the other cheek and love our enemies mean that it is always wrong to go to war? Should the world have turned the other cheek to Hitler and tried to love him into surrender? When Osama Bin Laden ordered the attack on the World Trade Center, should the U.S. have responded by sending him the Sears Tower as well? Or does Jesus allow a place for both loving our enemies and yet, in certain situations, using force to restrain life-threatening wickedness?
Without any facts or details, the network promoted the need for gun control
While admitting that it had virtually no details about an active shooter engaged with police in Philadelphia Wednesday night, CNN immediately called for more gun control and even used the opportunity to promote Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris’ gun control proposals.
Reports now indicate that an armed suspect opened fire and wounded six officers in north Philadelphia during a nearly eight-hour standoff after a warrant was served to search for narcotics.
The suspect is in custody, and all six police officers have been released from the hospital.
However, while all of this was unfolding, and details were extremely scant, CNN had already decided that this was a great opportunity to engage in pure speculation and liberal activism.
Wolf Blitzer told viewers that the Philadelphia incident “comes as Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris is rolling out her plan to end gun violence.”
The pair then discussed gun control, and Harris even suggested that her gun control proposals would have prevented this incident (that they both knew absolutely nothing about at this stage) from happening at all.
After the segment finished, CNN host Dana Bash then admitted “this is an active situation” and “[w]e don’t know how this is going to end and more importantly, we don’t know what it is all about.”
Still, this didn’t prevent Bush from calling for stricter gun control:
“I don’t want to say it’s the new normal, but it is this kind of situation where you have an active shooter is coming across our phones and coming across the phones and, you know, bulletin alerts of people all across the country very, very frequently, which is why here in Washington there has been a renewed discussion about whether or not finally the Republican and Democratic Party can come together and figure out ways to stop this, whether it is gun control, any form of gun control or other means.” Bash declared.
The conversation continued, with CNN Legal analyst Joey Jackson openly calling for gun control.
“Yes, there is a Bill of Rights. Yes, I do agree and do believe strongly in the second amendment, but we need on protect responsible gun ownership. Why is it that only 17 states, we have 50, have red flag laws?” Jackson asked.
“We need more states. We need the federal government to provide incentives or grant other states to have these laws. We need at the federal level, like Kamala Harris, you just had her on the show, has a proposal to get the federal courts involved.” he continued.
“These are important in as much as yes, we’ll protect your right to bear an arm. But if you’re not rational and you’re not reasonable, we’re going to take it away,” he added.
Jackson also repeated the often misleading ‘background check loophole’ argument.
Could it be any clearer that CNN is not a news gathering body, but rather an activist network?
After an Immigrations and Customs Enforcement office were hit with gunfire in San Antonio, the Director of the office issued a statement blaming ‘various politicians, media outlets and activist groups’.
The windows of the ICE office near Loop 410 and Nacogdoches Road were shattered by shots police believe were fired from across the freeway before 3 am on Tuesday.
#SanAntonio: Shots fired at ICE facility around 3 am this morning. Shots came from across the highway and hit the 14th floor. No one was injured and the suspect has been caught. The name of the suspect has not been released.
The shooting at an @ICEgov office this morning is (at least) the 4th anti-ICE incident in about a month

Here’s a photo of one of the bullet holes from this morning. @USCIS stands with @ICE as they work to enforce our laws and keep Americans safe!
“Police said they took a man into custody who was found along Village Drive, not far from where the shooting occurred,” the San Antonio Express-News reported. “No injuries were reported from the shooting.”
“It is unclear whether the ICE office was targeted or if it was a random attack.” the report notes.
“Had the bullets gone two inches in another direction, we could be here today talking about the murder of a federal official,” FBI special agent Christopher Combs said.
The Field Director at the office, Daniel Bible, seems more certain, however, that the attack was deliberate, and he’s blaming leftist anti-ICE rhetoric.
Bible notes that ‘misinformation’ about ICE is being ‘recklessly disseminated’ by certain politicians and activists.

“ICE officers put their lives on the line each and every day to keep our communities safe,” the statement said. “This disturbing public discourse shrouds our critical law enforcement function and unnecessarily puts our officers’ safety at risk.”
Bible’s condemnation is clearly aimed at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), who has declared that ICE facilities on the border are ‘concentration camps’.
The same rhetoric has been used by Antifa affiliated individuals, in particular, the terrorist who attempted to kill ICE workers at a Tacoma, WA facility last month.
“We cannot allow political discourse to lead us to the point of violence, where federal employees, innocent people doing their jobs, are put in harm’s way,” added agent Combs.
AOC has yet to comment on the ICE shooting.
Instead, she’s tweeting about pockets and left-handed day.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper said during an interview with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos that he found the demographic decline of white people “exciting”. This man has a sin nature inherited from (Romans 5:12). That sin nature has control of a person and causes various sins to manifest in one’s life (Galatians 5:17–21; Ephesians 5:17–19). Controlled by that sin nature, Cooper can in no way know God and please God. In fact, Anderson Cooper is an enemy of God (Romans 5:10; 8:5–7). The Bible says that the sinner, controlled by his sinful nature (Homosexualaitly,) needs a new nature and deliverance from the power of sin. reprobation
“The idea that you know, whites will not be the majority, I mean, that’s — it’s an exciting transformation of the country, it’s an exciting evolution and you know, the progress of our country in many different ways,” said Cooper.
Ramos agreed that whites becoming a minority in America was an inevitable and positive development.
Anderson Cooper is barely able to contain his excitement about Whites becoming a minority.

“There’s nothing really they can do against this incredible demographic revolution. And in 2044, everyone is going to be a minority,” he said.
The media has repeatedly asserted that even raising the “conspiracy theory” of “the great replacement” or the demographic decline of white people puts you on a par with mass shooters and terrorists. Source
Residents Harass, Throw Objects at Philly Police Leaving Scene of Shootout
After a wild standoff and shootout that left six cops wounded in Philadelphia, residents pelted objects and shouted obscenities at some of the officers involved.
Video footage shows officers leaving the scene of the shootout, only to be physically confronted, laughed at and verbally abused by onlookers.
Bear in mind that the suspect, 36-year-old Maurice Hill, had a lengthy history of gun convictions, was being served a warrant related to a drug offense and could easily have killed some of the cops involved.
The officers were heckled and laughed at as they walked through the crowd, with one woman pushing a cop and calling him a “bitch ass ni**a.”
Yelling, screaming, and throwing things at officers that have PROTECTED YOU for 4 hours during an active shooting? Classy. WTH is wrong with you? #Philadelphia #Philly #phillypd #philadephiapd #philadelphiapolice #phillyshooter #phillyshooting @FoxNews4,0207:27 PM – Aug 14, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacy3,762 people are talking about this
Some residents even tried to physically confront and scuffle with the officers.
According to Philadelphia’s KYW-TV reporter Alexandria Hoff, the harassment also took place during the exchange of gunfire with the suspect.
“I mentioned this at 10 and since I was harassed during that live shot, I’ll mention it here, too,” Hoff said on Twitter. “A major moment of a disappointment this evening was watching a crowd of people taunt police officers, laughing and yelling at them in the midst of the gunfire.”

After more than five hours of gunfire, a SWAT team managed to get two officers and three hostages out of the building which Hill was holed up safely.
The constant drumbeat of hate America first by the mainstream media is now commonplace, no wonder Americans are confused, the poor feel disenfranchised, the radical hatemongers, KKK, Jesse Jackson, I hate white people Al Sharpton, David Duke, etc. makes for an explosive cocktail in America.
It is an error to say that God never supports a war. Jesus is not a pacifist. In a world filled with evil people, sometimes war is necessary to prevent an even greater evil. If Hitler had not been defeated by World War II, how many more millions would have been killed? If the American Civil War had not been fought, how much longer would African-Americans have had to suffer as slaves?
War is a terrible thing. Some wars are more “just” than others, but war is always the result of sin (Romans 3:10-18). At the same time, Ecclesiastes 3:8 declares, “There is…a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.” In a world filled with sin, hatred, and evil (Romans 3:10-18), war is inevitable. Christians should not desire war, but neither are Christians to oppose the government God has placed in authority over them (Romans 13:1-4; 1 Peter 2:17). The most important thing we can be doing in a time of war is to be praying for godly wisdom for our leaders, praying for the safety of our military, praying for a quick resolution to conflicts, and praying for a minimum of casualties among civilians on both sides (Philippians 4:6-7).
Jesus chastised religious leaders in the first century for not knowing the time of His arrival. Will we make the same mistake today? Christ stated how His second coming would be preceded by global events signifying the end of our age. We may not know the day or the hour, but we can know the season!
“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.” (Joel 2:28.)
Education is useless without the bible (Daniel Webster)
“Courage is as “fear that has said its prayers.”
John Wesley who said that what we tolerate in our generation, will be embraced by the next. Wesley is 100% correct! We are living in sick times.
Usually, the Lord doth no great thing for or against his people, without giving warning of it before it comes.
They perverted justice among themselves (v. 7): “You turn judgment to wormwood, that is, you make your administrations of justice bitter and nauseous, and highly displeasing both to God and man.’’ That fruit has become a weed, a weed in the garden; as nothing is more venerable, nothing more valuable, than justice duly administered, so nothing is more hurtful, nothing more abominable, than designedly doing wrong under color and pretense of doing right. Corruptio optimi est pessima —The best, when corrupted, becomes the worst.
It is impossible to find anyone in the Bible who was a power for God who did not have enemies and was not hated.
2 Corinthians 4:8-11 New King James Version (NKJV)
8 We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 10 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11 For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
