“Why do Christians shoot their wounded?”

I think it’s the name of a book – food for thought isn’t it!

The armies of the world don’t do that, they might shoot the wounded on the other side – such is the depravity of man – but they usually tend and care for those on their own side who have been injured in conflict.

Galatians 6 speaks of “those who are spiritual” restoring such a persion “in the spirit of meekness” – may the Lord give me such a spirit!

Another one that’s food for thought – why when the Bible speaks about “endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit, in the bond of peace” do so many Christians spend their days splitting believers by fault finding, raking up the past 100 years, and then treating fellowbelievers as though they have a contagious disease?

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not the most peaceable brother ever, but surely, surely this should make us think….
