Our LORD used both physical and vocal violence against the money changers and the Jewish leaders in the temple. Or do you think he just walked in and spoke weakly to them? Is our LORD coming back with a coffee and some flowers for a nice noonday "Freska" chat with the enemies who love this world or is he coming back to rule it with a rod of iron?
A lot of Baptists need to get off the drugs of "prosperity" and "Sinless salvation" preaching and get back in the war for men's souls. The days of being 100% meek and weak with this world are over. We need more Men on the streets than boys.
I must ask, is it the job of Christians today to get out the word of God, the gospel, or to rule the world with a rod of iron? Are we to harangue and brow beat people like a demagogue or are we to present the gospel and let the Holy Spirit be the ultimate pedagogue? I don't believe God has turned all of His means of instruction and chastisement over to His children. Religious organizations such as the Roman church may have the idea that He has, but they are mistaken. There is a dominion theology out there which teaches that the church will change the world but they are in error also. Only God is going to truely change a man's heart . . . . not you or I.
