Christ or Anti-Christ?
If Jesus is the Prince of Peace, the anti-Christ is the Prince of War.
If Jesus heals, the anti-Christ sheds blood.
If Jesus says we should love our enemy, the anti-Christ says we should torture them.
If Jesus commands us to bless those who curse us, the anti-Christ urges us to make war against them.
If Jesus says we should pray for those who persecute us, the anti-Christ says we ought to oppress and imprison them.
If Jesus tells us to care for the poor, the anti-Christ says we should just ignore them.
If Jesus says his disciples will not fight, the anti-Christ encourages us to glorify violence.
If Jesus says we should turn the other cheek, the anti-Christ says we should destroy the aggressor.
Who does the Church most resemble?
Are we of Christ, or are we of the anti-Christ?
Let us pray.
