Sunday Preaching: God Asks – “What Are You Doing?”

Violence in the ancient times are more ethical in the sense that people really fight for land and territory, people fight for what they believe and the fighting is only between armies. Sometimes its between the champions of two or more rival armies. If you lose, your entire nation submit to the authority of the other nation or kingdom. No blood spilled. Also, less casualty in terms of civilians. Yun nga lang, pag natalo kayo, then the winning army will pillage your country, rape your women, kill your first born and enslave the elderly, the young and the rest of the women. In a way mas violent din nuon kasi nga ang gamit na weapons are swords and axes. So it means chain saw massacre and peg.
