    “Simply put, the God of the Bible is not a pacifist.” True. And simply put, God calls Christians to be the light of the world, not the sword of the Lord. “Never pay back evil for evil…; ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,’ says the LORD.” https://textsincontext.wordpress.com/2012/05/31/romans-13-in-context-sword-pacifism/

    Also see book ‘Yahweh is a Warrior’ by Millard Lind (Mennonite scholar).

    The opening of the video seems to display a common mistake, equating pacifism and passivity, two entirely unrelated words. See http://www.amazon.com/Christian-Pacifism-Fruit-Narrow-Way-ebook/dp/B005RIKH62/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1422887660&sr=8-3&keywords=pacifism

      There was a steady evolution in the concept of God from the beginning of the Old Testament through to the peak of the New Testament.

      The book “The Evolution of God” by former pastor Robert Wright outlines this progression.

    Violence is always contextual. I like Codreanu’s interpretation, which seems to marry OT and NT rather well. “Our personal enemies, we can fogive as good Christians, but the enemies of our people as a whole we cannot.”

    We can see those who attack us in the sense of political and geopolitical machinations as like foreign enemies in war, so long as our cause is just and not misled. If we fight for Tradition and Truth, we will always be in good standing with the Lord most high.
