Should Christians love ISIS members?

Posted by: That1PoliticalKid

The bible says to love your enemy. But is it right to love ISIS members who kill Christians?

  • Love Them!

  • Hate Them!

  • Matthew 5:44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. This is exactly what Jesus asks us to do. loving unconditionally is the greatest command! in my opinion, you need to love everyone because although they have many flaws, they are still the creation of God. I also think that it is up to the military to destroying them. It is up to us to follow Jesus' commands.

  • You are told to love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But I tell you now, love your enemies. If you hate them, how are you going to be just with them? Are not all human souls equally important? Hate the sin, not the sinner.

  • Jesus said to "love thy neighbor as you love yourself." That include everyone no matter what religion they believe in. When Christians live exactly how Jesus intended them to live, then others will see and more than likely become followers of Christ. Even if they want to kill Christians, we die for Christ and we will leave this temporary life for eternal rest.

  • Yes cause they say they and jesus love everyone no matter what

  • Yes, because they know not what they are doing

  • God said so, prophets said so, and honestly, all I feel is sorrow when I think about someone who is deemed an "enemy".

  • God commands us to love everyone. But that does not mean we love/approve of what they do.

I believe we should not only love them but most importantly pray for them. Matthew 5:44 says: But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.

@That1PoliticalKid Assuming you're not a troll: why do you support Trump? He said that he would kill the families of ISIS (which would be a war crime) and back out of the Geneva Conventions. He also said that he would bring back torture even if it doesn't work. He has even asked why America shouldn't use nuclear weapons.

I think it is up to our political leaders when it comes to fighting enemies. But loving our enemies is exactly what Jesus asks us to do. The Jewish people were in a situation where they wanted to kill the Romans and escape from their rule. But Jesus said to love everyone unconditionally. Also it is not any better to vote for Hillary Clinton, as she is corrupt, and is going to let America down by raising taxes, and not even recognizing the fact that there is Islamic extremist terrorism. I think fighting is up to the people who defend our country. Even in the old testament, they destroyed their enemies because as the government, it was their job to defend the Israelites. Thank you for reading, and I hope you take into consideration what I have said.

Before I take what you've said into consideration, you should take what I've said into consideration. By the way, Jesus said a lot of things.

Amazing how many Christians nowadays forget to "love thy enemies."
reece says2016-11-04T15:23:35.0351386Z
@Politics2016 It's all about having the perceived moral high ground and using it as a justification to oppress others.
reece says2016-11-04T15:36:13.8240026Z
@That1PoliticalKid Okay, I'll sum up what I said to simplify it: why do you support Trump despite the things I listed.
reece says2016-11-04T15:39:20.7444008Z
@That1PoliticalKid It seems like a direct contradiction to your beliefs of what Jesus teaches.

While we love all people, we don't love what ISIS is doing. Love the sinner, hate the sin. While I'm all about changing ISIS members to Christ, in order to protect other lives, they must be eradicated.

2 Peter 3:9: "The Lord is not slack (slow) concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering (patient) to us-ward, not willing that ANY should perish, but that all should come to redemption." And lest you say that any sin is more than another: James 2:10-11: "For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressors of the law." Thus if you think ISIS is beyond redemption, you should think we ALL are beyond redemption: Romans 3:23: "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" Besides, we have no room to say we're superior anyway. Ephesians 2:8: "For by grace (a free gift that we didn't deserve) are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God" We didn't do anything to get our salvation. So how can we say that we are somehow better than them? None are beyond redemption: 1 Timothy 1:15-16: (written by Paul the apostle, formerly Saul the persecutor) "This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting." Talk about spilling the blood of the saints: Paul was a man who approved of the first ever killing of a saint (Stephen) and is recorded in Acts to be among the chief persecutors of the saints. He calls himself the chief of sinners! If he could obtain redemption, that is proof the grace of Jesus is enough.
