The Gospel of Peace

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things, who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion, Your God reigns!’” (Romans 10:15).

Satan, the father of lies (John 8:44), is the source of all falsehoods—subtle and blatant. Few of his inaccuracies are more egregious than the fiction that the religion begun by the bloodied sword of Muhammed is one of peace.

Though there is continuous spiritual jihad in Christianity, the enemy is not physical flesh and blood, but principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of the age, and the spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12). Our human enemies are to be loved, blessed, done good, and prayed for (Matthew 5:44), not slaughtered with carnal armaments. The weapons of our warfare—which are spiritual and intellectual in nature—are able to cast down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God and to bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:4-5).

When the lies of Satan are defeated and the truth is believed and obeyed, there is peace with God (Romans 5:1) and freedom (John 8:32).

What glad tidings of good things are in the gospel of peace.
