Christian: would jesus support the vietnam war?
- Favourite answer
Accordingly to the Bible, GOD is the only one with the legal authority to declare war and during the Christian era, this authority was actually held directly and exclusively by the Holy Church, which would 'referee' all war and use its holy knights to prevent acts like genocide, interdict unsanctioned weapons trafficking and invention or stop the killing of women and children, (also conspicuously punishing any violators).
Despite the advent of secular culture and the inescapable arms race into which it has now managed to trap itself through unregulated weapons invention and trafficking, GOD continues to view warfare in exactly the same way, punishing any violators based on the universal authority declaration of Jesus Christ, (Matthew 28:18-20).
The Vietnam War was a 'proxy war' fought against 'antichrist' (1 John 2:18-23, 4:3), which is not a comic book super villain, but rather a type of 'anti-Church' made up of ten spectacular military regimes operating in tandem along with its support structures in economics, education and news dissemination/ entertainment which are dedicated to the eradication of religion and its replacement with an atheistic science, described in scripture as the 'mystery of lawlessness,' (2 Thessalonians 2:7).
This ideological viewpoint contains the supposed pursuit of a new 'mystery' and 'truth' in a cosmos presumably devoid of both GOD and divine Law. The goal of the endeavor is to demonstrate in a believable manner that Christ is not only mundane rather than divine, but was never a 'real' flesh and blood person at all, (2 John 1:7). Therefore, His universal declaration is without merit or basis and war may be fought without a 'referee' or divine oversight and punishment.
The Vietnam War was indeed a justly fought war at least in terms of its purpose, but it was not 'refereed' by any authority sanctioned by Christ, so it was used as a pretext to invent dangerous new weapons, traffic humans and illegal narcotics, harm innocent noncombatant women and children for personal entertainment, damage Christ's new economic and social order represented by ethical 'Capitalism' and free markets, and ultimately resulted in a full scale genocide, (Pol Pot regime), after Democratic forces abruptly left the Asian theater in defeat under pressure from antichrist communists operating under the guise of 'free thought' and hippy-style 'universal love.' They managed to undermine those forces using political intrigue, lies and public pressure, allowing communism to spread throughout the world and many more genocides to occur.
not as it was waged...... no...... but Jesus does oppose the evil systems that were... and are...being impose upon the Vietnamize people

Democrats did. They got us into it.
How Vietnam Haunts the Democrats
Fifty years later, the ghosts of Pleiku and LBJ linger over modern politics.
Jesus didn't say anything about it other than the warnings God gave to the Israelites of having a kingdom like the rest of the world around them.
