Missionaries Not Mercenaries

Two critical facts separate Biblical Christianity from all the religions of the world: Jesus is God and Jesus came in the flesh to die for the sins of mankind.
(2 John 1:7) “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.”
The Bible teaches that each person must believe that Jesus is in fact God and that he died for the sins of all mankind, and also that individual sinners must repent of their unbelief and confess their need for salvation. Anyone teaching contrary to this doctrine is a deceiver and an antichrist.
Jesus did not destroy those who did not believe; neither did God commission mercenaries to destroy them. Instead, Jesus walked up Calvary Hill and willingly allowed those unbelieving soldiers to nail him to the cross that they might have opportunity to believe and be saved.
(Mark 15:39) “And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.”
Friends we must stand for the Truth as God has given it in his Holy Word; not that we may destroy but that we may offer every unbelieving soul a real chance to hear, believe and be saved.
May we all be missionaries not mercenaries!
