"Has Christianity caused more wars than anything else in history?"
Some skeptics say Christianity has caused more wars than anything else in history. They paint a picture of Christians as the most murderous group of people, and somehow, this objection is supposed to discredit the claims of Christ and debunk the Bible in one single jab.
Now, I agree man has used "religion" for political gain. But then again, sinful man has used everything under the sun for political gain. Just because a politician or a military leader uses the name of God to further his agenda, that does not mean God approves.
In John 16, Jesus tells us that there will be some who will murder in the name of God. He says, "the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God." John 16 goes on to say, " they will do these things because they have not known the Father, nor me."
These are not true Christians. The bible explains that hypocrites and deceivers will always be in and around the Christian church until God punishes them on the Day of Judgment. Jesus told His followers to love their enemies. So, if a man puts a knife into someone's back in the name of Christianity, something obviously isn't right. Let's not forget the Bible tells us all murderers, including those who've had murderous thoughts in their heart will not make it to heaven. Following the teachings of the Bible will not lead you to start a war.
In fact, it's the Bible that teaches us to be at peace with all men.
