Contender vs. Pretender (part 2) - Jude 17-25

September 7, 2011

Does God call Christians to be pacifists? Certainly the Bible says that we are to love others (including our enemies), to forgive, and to show compassion and mercy. But I would also argue that the Bible teaches that there is a time to fight. The question is, when are we to fight and what are we to fight for? Jude takes on that question and in his letter and helps us to make a distinction between those who contend for the faith and those who pretend for the faith. So which are you, a contender or a pretender?
