The Real “Holy War” Recognition

 Striking at times, isn’t it, how these misnomers gets traction? By now, when you think of the term “Jihad”, or “Jihadist”, what does that tell us? Is it describing some glorious warrior fighting for the cause of his god and religion? If it means anything less than a barbaric murderer to a rational thinking person, then we too have cast our vote towards the popularization of misleading terminology. Even if we know but hide our understanding of covered terms, we still forward to the hearer a subconscious legitimizing of indiscriminant murder.

I would never make it as a panelist. The first mistake in discussion is to run to the mainstream verbal preference. When they say “Holy War”, they also expect us to jump in with the term so we can all be in the same boat by implementing the full and most importantly, universal (Christian included) understanding of justification of sanctioned murder through terminology.

Yet today, who is publically viewed as unacceptable? We, who forward such atrocities in our teachings?

·       “Do not repay anyone evil for evil” (Rom 12:17)

·       “Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult.” (I Pet 3:9)

·       “See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another and for all people.” (I Thess 5:15)

Yet so often we hear ourselves commonly called a hateful people, wherein the vast amount of hate can be understood coming from them by not accepting God’s truth:

·       Man has fallen.

·       Man admits and confesses it.

·       Man believes on Jesus Christ for God’s forgiveness, and by nothing else.

Hate? Are they serious? This is beautiful! This is the most merciful thing God has ever brought to our needs, and we bring hate?

One of the most beautiful things God has given man to see, interestingly enough is the most scenic road in the world, and the oldest, and strongest, safest – the Roman road:

·       Romans 3:23

·       Romans 6:23

·       Romans 10:8-10

“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

“But what does it say? “THE WORD IS NEAR YOU, IN YOUR MOUTH AND IN YOUR HEART”—that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, 9that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; 10for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.”

Glory to God in the highest for this MOST merciful passion for us!
