I started emailing a study a week to a few SWAT buddies and now have thousands of website hits in over 45 countries. I have been amazed to watch God work through the application of His Word in this ministry. What started out as a small weekly email has now been viewed all over our world.
Here you will find an emphasis on Biblical views of violence, and this is needed more and more in our increasingly violent world.
At first, my goal was to study difficult passages that we normally don’t hear preached in churches. Passages like “The Commander of the Army of The Lord,” and other difficult texts that help give clarity to people within warrior occupations. However, I have found that recently many within the Christian church are at a loss when debating serious topics that are addressed in Scripture. Many pastors don’t enter difficult texts, and this causes problems as their people don’t understand Biblical solutions for difficult problems. This site addresses these difficult topics, but also normal topics as well. Here you will find an emphasis on Biblical views of violence, and this is needed more and more in our increasingly violent world.
The Bible teaches, and I believe that innocent human life is precious. All human beings existed in the mind of our creator, and He purposefully caused our existence. To this end, we believe that it is noble to stand in defense of innocent life. Every great civilization had warriors who stood the line, and standing this line gives them intimate knowledge about the value of human life. When an evil person creates a situation of great peril against an innocent person, it is noble to stand between them. It is noble to transfer the peril from the faultless person’s body to your own body with intent to preserve innocent life. On a much greater scale, this is what Christ did when He took on the sins of the world to justify us blameless before the Father. While we don’t hear the word “noble” describing many people today, I believe it is for a lack of exposure to the masses, not for a lack of noble actions.
