SWORD GUIDANCE When Jesus was arrested, Peter took his sword and cut off a man’s right ear. Jesus touched his ear and healed him, telling Peter, “PUT YOUR SWORD BACK IN ITS PLACE. ALL WHO USE SWORDS WILL BE KILLED WITH SWORDS” [Mt 26:52 IC].  Although, Jesus had recently encouraged His apprentices to have a sword for defense, He clearly is opposed to fighting. The best way to be certain whether a situation would be considered by God as defense or fighting, is to ask God for guidance. Do you ask God for guidance?  Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
