The Lord is a warrior
April 20, 2003
Some letter writers are looking to God and the Bible to justify their anti-war views. Perhaps you might take a look at Exodus, the second book of the Bible.
In Exodus, Chapter 15, Verse 3, it says, “The Lord is a Warrior, The Lord is his name…” This is the story where the Israelites were trying to escape from their oppressors, the Egyptians.
Read it to see what happens to the oppressors. Needless to say, none of them survived.
The Bible is a book about battles and about one rather large battle toward the end of it. Blood, gore, guts and death. It’s all there in the Bible. Peace and life are there, too, after the enemy is dispatched.
