"The day is coming when men shall kill you and THINK they do God service."
Since we are bound to err, let us err on the side of grace and mercy and not
legality and judgementalism. Such an attitude as expressed here was expressed
against Christ, the apostles and the early church by those who were supposedly
defending the truth. Was not the sword Jesus referred to a prophetic warning
to those who would believe of the WORLD's rejection and persecution? Surly, we
are to be "...harmless as doves."
