Not only are we to take care of our bodies and the life contained. We have an obligation to preserve the body and life of other people. Psalm 82:4 even cites an obligation to protect those who are in danger:
Just because Jesus came to fulfill HIS destiny to be a willing sacrifice - does not mean that WE are to adopt the same 'lamb to the slaughter' philosophy, that was his chosen destiny NOT mine. He taught us how to treat each other better - not to share in his painful and violent fate. I came to protect others spiritually and physically - whichever way the times and circumstances in which I live require of me to use, and as a warrior - I would rather be defeated and die trying to defend others - than to go against my own nature to fulfil MY destiny in this present physical life.
The people of Eastern Ukraine were 'peacefully' and 'lovingly' shopping in malls, going to the movies, going on dates, relaxing at the beach in Crimea etc. up to a year ago...but the times and circumstances in which they live NOW - require them to own weapons and know how to use them to protect themselves and their families from armed criminals....are you so stupid to condemn them for doing so because 'all violence is bad'? Who the hell are YOU to ride your cowardly pacifist-brainwashed moral high horse in the comfort of your safe living room and judge them? How many of YOUR relatives have been raped or murdered when chaos turned your world upside down? How many lives do you think you will save using pacifist tactics in a war ravaged society? Unless you are very rich (and chances are some poor thug with a cheap gun could kill you and take all your riches too) you will not save as many as Mr. Schindler did in Germany, so drop that fantasy real fast...realistically you will save as many as you can adequately DEFEND BY FORCE....have no self-defence skills - and you WILL join the pile or corpses really soon in such a situation...or exist by hiding in terror like a rat while those around you are butchered and killed.....yes that is real 'Christian' of you to not be able to protect or defend them....
It is time we realize that certain words and phrases were DELIBERATELY ALTERED by the beneficiaries of the grand and ancient organised religious program to cause our indoctrinated cowardice to PACIFY us mentally and physically - how else do you think 1% could rule over 99% for so many thousands of years? By making the 99% TERRIFIED to think, talk or ever do - anything that could end their domination over us! We are so stupid now - we will rather fight to PERPETUATE our pacifist deception rather than see the truth those no longer brainwashed by the system try to show us. ...this is why there have always been so few leaders - and so many followers - in the history of mankind on both sides of the issue. The word 'SHEEPLE" was invented for a very valid reason.
