According to a popular YouTube personality, whose videos about his religious beliefs frequently go viral, God and the Bible call for us to bomb ISIS. The video, which evangelist Joshua Feuerstein posted on his public Facebook page Wednesday afternoon, was quick to get a widely varied response. With recent terror attacks and a lot of people questioning the safety of admitting Syrian refugees, you’ve likely seen conflicting opinions across social media. Memes calling for people not to judge all Muslims by the actions of ISIS are widespread, and they’re sparking quite a debate.
Mr Feuerstein is neither a Pastor nor a Christian. Were he, he would know what Jesus said in response to the same sort of murderous idiocy from James and John-
When His disciples James and John saw this, they said, “Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them?” But He turned and rebuked them, and said, “You do not know what kind of spirit you are of; for the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them.” And they went on to another village. (Lk 9:55-56).
