Exactly.This argument could be applied to any armed rebellion/revolution in history.
So what does your correct observation tell us about all these militias, even those that did their actions in His name - even though His written word commands otherwise? Reason it out to the logical conclusion, SpaceShredder - you're already half-way there.
The first century Christians made it without any armed rebellion; why would the hand of God be cut short in the centuries following?I’m not sure things would have turned out well for humanity if grown men didn’t fight for what they believe in. No Protestant Reformation, no stopping the spread of Islam into Western Europe, no American Revolution, and probably no Christianity at all.
If our God is so weak that we have to form earthly 'Christian' militias to fight in His behalf/protect ourselves, then that would make our God and religion just as pathetic and worthless as the religion of Islam and the non-existent god allah whom they serve.
