It you think that loving your neighbor means sitting by and letting evil prevail against them, then I would say you have a perverted view of what love is.

I guess Micheal and his angels did not get the passivism memo from God....Revelation 12:7



"How foolish can you be? After starting your Christian lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort?" (Gal. 3:3)

"He has enabled us to be ministers of His new covenant. This is a covenant not of written laws, but of the Spirit. The old written covenant ends in death; but under the new covenant, the Spirit gives life." (2 Cor. 3:6)

Luke 22:36
“But now,” he said, “take your money and a traveler’s bag. And if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one!

Matthew 10:34
Do not think that I have come to bring peace upon the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.


Jesus has drawn the battle line. Satan has lost, but he has yet to get the memo. Every demon is on notice.

My dear brother. Does God pervert love by letting His saints die? If a man shall lose his life for his brother, what is his reward? Great is his reward! Any battle that will be fought will be God's battle and not mans. We should not kill each other and say it is God's will. It is not His will that we should kill one another. Were the Crusades justified? How many souls can you save by killing someone? How many souls can you save by dying as a martyr for Christ?

Christ will fight His Holy War upon His return. When He was in the flesh, He went as a lamb to the slaughter. Could He have not formed an army of 12 legions of angels and conquer the Romans?

I have seen war. There's just no excuse for it.

Peace and blessings.


John
"And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen."

So you are a pacifist then?Good job that all the brave men who fought for us(the UK) in the scond world war werent pacifists, or Hitler would have won and wiped out even more Jews that he did already. Also I may be speaking German, what an awful thought!

As I told you before, I am a God pleaser, not a man pleaser.

Respectfully, you appear to ber more of a blowhard that is trying to win justification than someone really comfortable in their spiritual maturity.

To answer the question of your thread without addressing the post itself :

The Gospel is not simply what Jesus taught.  The Gospel - the Good News - is Christ Himself, that is, the Person of Christ.

The Good News is that God became man that human beings might become sons and daughters of God.

Peace and All Good,

Teresa

Teresa,
While you must receive Christ to enter into the kingdom of God,The gospel was not of his death. The reason that is the gospel can not be about Jesus death is because the Word had not yet died on the cross nor did anyone know that he was going to die when he came teaching of the Good News. The GOOD NEWS is that God was now making His kingdom available to those who were tired of the worlds way.
Most definetly you must abide in the Word and the Word abide in you in order to renew your mind so that you CAN become a child of God, but the gospel that Jesus taught, was that God is seeking a people for Himself from the Gentiles to enter into the kingdom of God and come out of this worlds system of corruption.


I think it will help this discussion if you will read the post you are replying to before you reply.

There was nothing in my post that said the gospel is just about his death.

Please read it again.

I reiterate :  the Gospel, the Good News is not just what Jesus taught - the Gospel cannot be reduced to His sayings.  There are others who have taught similar things but we don't call their teaching the Gospel.  The Good News is Christ Himself.

Peace and All Good

Teresa
..

as pedantically picky as I am, I even agree with your post.  If anything I would add matt 5:53-48 to your thoughts.

Found on another forum posted by a guy by the name of lesjude. 

And I quote

"Killing and the Christian
The principle of Mat. 5:38-48 is nonresistance toward all. No killing or wounding or returning evil by a Christian. This is what fatther God had always intended in the old and new testaments.

Well, isn't les jude living in an eisegetical nightmare.

Jesus tells the people to love as thoroughly as GOD HIMSELF LOVES.  That's the purpose of all those verses.  Not just yourself, but even your enemies.  It doesn't say never do bad things, Remember God committed genocide in the OT.  You need to reconcile those acts in your answer lesjude, or the fact that it's incomplete will be a glaring issue.

What is the Gospel, the Good News that Jesus taught?

Can, completely be summed up in three words:

LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
In His Precious Name, Jesus Christ
