Twice, I came across this picture within two weeks. I don't remember what this was about, but this was found on a friend's facebook page.
I was shocked to read some of these comments. I cannot comprehend the mindset of someone who loves their faith, loves their God, but has the heart and no guilt to wish rape upon people who do not share their same belief. From my background, I was taught to love your neighbor and your enemy. Yes, in the end God will judge us all and those who believe in him and his word will be saved. But, were we not taught to live like Christ? I think it is wrong to use your faith to justify violence. I firmly believe that Christ would NEVER wish rape or death because a group of people choose not to believe in Him.
Maybe I missed something in mass. Maybe I missed a book in the Bible about this kind of behavior. But, I do not promote this behavior. I think this behavior puts a foul name in the Christian faith.
Do you know someone with this behavior? Do you think this is okay behavior for Christians?
