Deadly Force in Defense: As a believer, do I have the right to defend myself and my family using deadly force? [Luke 6:29-30, Matthew 5:38-48].

River Flowing & Splitting Mountain in Ezekiel: Are the verses in Ezekiel about the river "flowing out from Jerusalem" and the splitting of the mountain,literal or symbolic? [Ezekiel 47, Zechariah 14:4, 8, Joel 3:18, John 7:37-39, Hebrews 12, Isaiah 32:14-15].
Christian Discipleship & War: Would you help me understand being a disciple of Christ, and the idea that Christians should not parcipitate in war?

Self-defense & Pacifism: Why is the west so quick to use self-defense when it doesn't seem to have been commonly practiced in the early church?

Turn the other cheek and self defense: What does it mean to turn the other cheek relative to self-defense? [Matthew 5:38-48].

Is There Just War?: Is there "just" war? Does scripture support the idea of going to war? [Matthew 5:44, 22:39, Isaiah 42].

Christians Defending Themselves: It seems like non-western Christians seem to not defend themselves like those in the west do. What do you think the reason is?

Turning the Other Cheek: Love everyone & don't condone violence/revenge against people sinning against you, insulting you, type thing, but not real violent crime against you, that you can defend against that?

Abraham & Melchizedek: God was behind the war that Abraham fought, Melchizedek praising him for his victory, & does that do away w/ Pacifism? [Genesis 14:18-20]
