Earth and The Big Sky Battle

Post #1

Biblical Jesus: Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. [link]

Follower of Biblical Jesus: The phrase you use 'engaging in warfare' doesn't sit quite right to me. Something just seems off to me about that. Perhaps because it implies going out and looking for a fight, and not something that comes from love. Perhaps because you seem to have placed a negative connotation to it, as if a Christian is doing wrong (or going against Christ) by bearing witness to Him, and to His words, even knowing that may bring opposition? Or perhaps I simply misunderstand what you mean when you say 'engaging in warfare'. This is why I asked. [link]

QFD: What happened re the image of old testament god of the Jews that he changed so significantly from God of War into a God of Peace?

... Jehovah (יהוה) has no part in the countless violent man made struggles that have plagued our planet for millenia. Satan the Devil is "the god of this world system" and yes, that one is "a god of war", disorder and conflict.
Are you denying that יהוה had nothing to do with the conflicts which are recorded in the Tanakh?
The God ordained wars that Jehovah sanctioned were not "man made" they were DIVINE WARS where God exercised his right as the Supreme ruler of the universe.

[Replying to JehovahsWitness in post #20]
Scripturally being "no part of the world" does not mean not being on the planet but remaining seperate from the divisive elements and godless morals promoted by Satan's system.
Is it not the case that to remain separate, one has to kit up and do battle against divisive elements and godless morals?
Are you denying that יהוה had nothing to do with the conflicts which are recorded in the Tanakh?
The God ordained wars that Jehovah sanctioned were not "man made" they were DIVINE WARS where God exercised his right as the Supreme ruler of the universe.
Therefore, by you own words you are agreeing that יהוה is also a god of warfare, and exercises his right to so be, 'as the Supreme ruler of the universe'.

My calling the conflicts 'man made' had to do with humans being commanded by Supreme ruler of the universe and willingly used in that manner. DIVINE WARS fought on Earth and using Human beings doesn't somehow mean we cannot acknowledge יהוה as a 'God of War'.
