As the divide between politics increases and ideals are held above truth, extremism has born fruit of violence. Such as with the protestors, who are against overturning Roe V. Wade, becoming violent and harming police officers (1). In cases like these, the answer is not to retaliate violence with violence. Without a question, police officers must and should protect their community; however, as Christians, we must stand firm on Biblical values.
“12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
Ephesians 6:12 KJV
Let us not give in to emotional reasoning but remain honorable and peacefully counter the anti-Biblical principles and powers. We, much as the Bereans, search for the truth and then prepare a defense for the truth (1 Peter 3:15, Acts 17:11).
One of the avenues for defending the faith is through Nonviolent Action reported by Albert Einstein Institution (2).
Some of these may not be honorable, and some may be more effective than others. As such, the list simply displays the several forms of nonviolent action. I ask you to take the time to read through it and use the discernment of the Lord to find what would work best for you and your group to further the Kingdom of Heaven.
May God bless you, and keep striving, soldier of the Cross! We will win by the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony. We shall overcome because Christ alone is God over all. Do not be surprised at their hatred of righteousness for Christ foretold of the divide that was coming. We intend to win, don’t ever forget that, and never forsake the hope Christ has placed in your heart.
“51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:
52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.
53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.”
Luke 12:51-53 KJV
