Beating Swords Into Plowshares

Sword and PlowshareAll futurists predict violence in the Second Coming of Christ, which (according to them) has yet to occur. Dispensationalists tell us, for example, in the Battle of Armageddon Jesus will destroy about 200 million soldiers.

Even if we could conclude that such a thing was justified, how does God’s preference for Israel in this matter express any love whatsoever for the Canaanites?[1] In other words, if one could show God is just in his behavior toward Canaan, where was his love? The Christian cliché: “hate the sin but love the sinner” seems to be absent here. Why? Read the rest of this entry »
