You have told me things the book says, you have not told me what it teaches.Look , i can tell you what the book teaches , but perspective is another thing..
I would agree on that with you.
Like I asked you before about clarifying your saying the Holy Spirit is the sword:
You did not clarify it.Besides this one verse are there any other direct connections which might possibly verify that the Holy Spirit is in fact the sword?
What is the full message. How is it condemned.But the bible in it's full message condemns that
"...So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets."
I think this verse is simple but with deep wisdom.
Will you consider the wisdom of the bible message saying eye for eye, tooth for tooth. Some might think that is a good thing to do.
"And if a man cause a blemish in his neighbour; as he hath done, so shall it be done to him; Breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth: as he hath caused a blemish in a man, so shall it be done to him again". Leviticus.
It clearly says to do to others as they would do to you.
