A Journey Through Jude (3 of 8)
It's Right to Fight When You Fight for Right!
Steve Wagers
Jude 3-4

INTRODUCTION

1. You don't need to hang around
me very long to find out my love
for history. As it relates to history,
I particularly love American
history; and, specifically, the wars
that have been fought in this
country, and by this country.

2. At the 21st session of the
International Congress of the
Red Cross, September 6, 1969,
it was reported that more than
90 million people had been
killed in wars since the 20th
century began. In all, 130
conflicts on 5 continents had
been waged. 1

3. By far, the most costly war in
terms of human life was World
War, from 1939-1945. The total

savage war. Costing each man,
woman, boy and girl $1,708
each. 3

and those facts are terrible, Jude
reminds us that there is a far
greater battle taking place within
the realm of Christianity.

7. This is a battle whose
expenditures cannot be tagged to
a dollar amount because they can
only be measured in terms of
eternal impact.

8. This is a war over the
fundamentals of the faith. It is a
war over the truths of the Word of
God.
