The Persian Gulf War: Was This a Biblically Just War?

Two revealed truths compel us to evaluate the Persian Gulf War from the perspective of the Bible and then to publish that evaluation:

1. When Jesus gave the Church "the keys of the kingdom." (Mat. 16:19), He gave her the authority and the responsibility to apply the Word of God to the whole range of decisions and issues individuals and nations have to face in this world. "To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because they have no dawn," Isaiah 8:20.

2. The Bible, as the infallible and written revelation from God, is authoritative in everything about which it speaks, and it speaks about everything. "Therefore I esteem right all Thy precepts concerning everything...• " Psa. 119:128.

American Christians MUST learn to think and act biblically, as over against humanistically, emotionally, or pragmatically about everything, especially as we enter the 1990's, the last decade of the bloody Twentieth Century. "The decade of the 1990's is shaping up as one of the most dangerous in all of world history - one characterized by evil, duplicity, deception, and betrayal." - McAlvany Intelligence Adviser.
