Some years ago I found the following scripture that convicted me. "A curse on anyone who is lax in doing the LORD's work! A curse on anyone who keeps their sword from bloodshed!”  (Jeremiah 48:10, NIV) I have spent some time studying this verse and working through its implications. I have come to the following conclusions:
