I saw the following on a blog post:

Where my own self is concerned, I am content to turn the other cheek. However, I will fight—even to death—if the safety of my family is at stake. If a person stands by and does nothing when his children are being murdered, it is not a demonstration of righteousness. Rather, the person has become an accomplice to the murder, just as surely as though he had pulled the trigger himself.

I left the following for the author:

According to that, God has Jesus's blood on God's hands. Do you believe that? I don't.

Jesus did not go to war against the child murderers even though there were plenty of them around he could have hunted down and killed. He could have gone around killing all sorts of sinners. He didn't do it. He didn't ask his closest friends to take up the sword for him or for anyone. He taught against doing that. He taught to have faith in God's power over the soul that survives the flesh. Murdered, innocent children go to God, not Satan. Slaughtering the slaughterers is what slaughterers do. They don't end up next to or face to face with God. There's a right reason for that. Sort it out. Understand that everyone is your family.
