Captioned this article "After suffering the choice of forced conversion, tax to stay Christian, or death, Iraqi Christians are taking up arms to fight for their faith." Fighting for their faith for Christians is actually antithetical to and goes against the instructions given in the apostolic writings or "New Testament".
This is proof that the Christian doctrine that Jesus supposedly teaches in the "gospels" leads to the annihilation of any people who practice it when he instructs his followers (in Matthew 5:39 and Luke 6:29) to " do not resist an evil man" who might want to take advantage of or harm you and "if someone strikes you on your left cheek, turn and avail the right cheek to him (to strike) as well".
Christian doctrine, therefore, specifically instructs people to NOT PROTECT their personal boundaries, but to make themselves into doormats for evil people to take advantage of, rape, and pillage them for the sake of martyring themselves in the name if Jesus/ Yeshua, and that this is to be considered as a noble act!
On the contrary, TORAH instructs people to defend themselves without guilt or remorse, because Torah says repeatedly that people are forbidden from moving ancient boundary stones, and those boundaries apply to boundaries other than property lines in the physical world. They also apply to boundaries in the unseen world!
So here we have a bunch of Christians violating Jesus'/ Yeshua's specific instructions- why? Because the teachings of Jesus/ Yeshua in the apostolic writings or "New Testament" bring death, not life! They are obeying Torah, because the TORAH BRINGS LIFE.
Ecclesiastes states that eternity is set in the heart of man. It is human nature to protect and defend life- to SURVIVE- not to lay down and allow an evil person to take the most valuable gift given to man- his very life!
Referring to this anti-missionary's "proof" scriptures of Matthew 5:39 and Luke 6:29, it is clear they never had a proper understanding of the pshat/plain meaning.
People need to understand that Y'shua teaches we are not to react with evil towards evil; but rather, we are to allow patience and temperance to prevail when accosted by evil doers. Torah instructs the strong to protect the weak, Deut 22:27. Ya’akov teaches to “stand firm” against Satan, James 4:7. Paul teaches to stand against the strategies of the Accuser in Ephesians 6:11; neither does he mince words in Acts 13:10. Isaiah 14:15 states that haSatan will be brought down to hell and a slaughter is prepared for his children (verse 21). Rev 20:10 promises a date for Satan in the lake of fire, in the meantime we are to recognize that our battles are not against flesh and blood, and to act accordingly.

To make the comment that person made above, that Christians are supposed to "make themselves into doormats for evil people to take advantage of, rape, and pillage them for the sake of martyring themselves in the name if Jesus/ Yeshua, and that this is to be considered as a noble act!" - shows that many who have rushed toward Judaism have NO discernment. Yet they are out there, mouthing off and being lauded and embraced and encouraged by their new friends who are just as lost as they are when it comes to Scripture.
