Because EVERYONE in the Body of Christ lives as you do as well, pleasing to God. Hense, since there are so many kings, and a King above them,,,how then can your enemy conquer you? They can't. Therefore, when kingdoms of this earth were set up in a Godly way, with Jesus as King, then really there is nothing to worry about. It has always been this way, and always will.

I just pray that more will see this, and wake up.

It's really amazing what the effects of being at peace with God can have with those that come in to contact with us , the peace of God in us can diffuse any situation.

When i read the gospels i don't read of the so called sinner being the enemy of Jesus but religion , if God is for something religion is certainly against it.

I agree pcamps.

Religion is authority, like government is forceful authority. Or just force. These would be an enemy of those who follow Christ Jesus, as their King.

Sinners on the other hand, who desire to listen to the Gospel, and desire to be set free,,,love the good news. But even if they really are not softened to the gospel, they love what Christians do out of their love for them. But the more that people love it,,,the more authority hates it. Hense,,,the "world" will hate those who follow Christ as their ONLY King.
