Mike Pompeo: God’s Holy Warrior?

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is on the record as an Evangelical Christian. In various interviews he claims to rely on the Bible as his guide and inspiration. Reportedly Mr. Pompeo was the driving force behind President Trumps recent execution by drone of Iran’s’ second highest ranking public official, General Qasem Soleimani.

So if Mr. Pompeo is indeed relying on the Bible to guide him one must wonder where he’s finding commands to preemptively murder a Sovereign nation’s second highest ranking official? Yes, the Old Testament is filled with bloodshed and warfare. But with the arrival of Jesus Christ a new covenant of love was written in the hearts of men who received him as Savior and Lord. This was recorded in the New Testament.

The Old Testament's “eye for an eye” was replaced by Jesus admonition to exercise humility, love for enemies, self-restraint, forgiveness and mercy. Hard as I look I can’t find a passage in the Bible recounting how Jesus encouraged the faithful to murder a foreign public official because they might do something bad in the future?

Mr. Pompeo must have a different copy of Gods word than I do because I keep finding Jesus commands for love, mercy and forgiveness instead of premeditated murder?

This is the same Mike Pompeo who famously said last April 15th at College Station Texas that his tenure as head of the CIA was marked by teaching courses on how to lie, cheat and steal. Hmmm, lying, cheating and stealing must be consistent with Mr. Pompeo’s brand of Evangelical Christianity but it certainly doesn’t’ jibe with the teachings of Christ himself.

Fortunately Jesus told us how we could recognize his genuine followers:
Matthew 7:16-20

16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.
So what is the “fruit” of Washington DC’s psychopath leaders like Mike Pompeo? Death, destruction, misery and pain for anyone unwilling to bow to their demands. Lying, cheating and stealing is par for the course for them. They assuage their conscience by telling themselves their actions are “legal” because they’ve all voted for it and they have the power of the state behind them.

In their minds the commands of Jesus Christ himself are secondary to the demands of the modern tyrannical state. Anyone who would brag about teaching how to lie, cheat and steal with a twinkle in his eye is not a genuine follower of Jesus Christ regardless of what they may say.

Our defense department is now a cold, calculating offense department spewing out death from above. By their fruit you will know them.
