I’ve found myself thinking alot today about the wars we are involved in after watching a documentary video by John Pilger titled War on Democracy and hearing an interview on Joyce Riley’s The Power Hour with a sincere and passionate young Colonel named Michael Pryser. Among other sins, Michael was sharing his regrets in using the cold and calculating computer aided point-click-kill method to shoot Iraqi’s.
This poor man said he didn’t know if he was shooting at the suppposed enemy or not when he was in Iraq. He said he was just firing at “yellow dots” on the screen and really didn’t know who he was killing. He’s now pained with memories of his experiences murdering children and tearing apart families. I respect his courageous honesty in sharing such painful experiences. He’s now working hard to stop the spread of such evil. Check out his website at http://www.marchforward.org

A related biblical thought from Revelation 18:1-4 which says:
And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
This prophecy is pleading with God’s people to sever their supportive ties with a fallen, demonically empowered nation. Their nation is enriching herself and other powers through violence (the wrath of her fornication). They risk reaping a striking by God if they continue to support corrupt foreign policy and the idolatrous, covetous, murderous wars that are enriching the global financial powers (the merchants of the earth).
God have mercy on us for our sins and give us repentance for our proud support of such evil in the church……..
