The separation of church and hate*

This is my kind of evangelical preacher. Anyone who dares to say this in a "Christian" mega-church is on the right path.
Before the last presidential election, he preached six sermons called “The Cross and the Sword” in which he said the church should steer clear of politics, give up moralizing on sexual issues, stop claiming the United States as a “Christian nation” and stop glorifying American military campaigns.

“When the church wins the culture wars, it inevitably loses,” Mr. Boyd preached. “When it conquers the world, it becomes the world. When you put your trust in the sword, you lose the cross.”
Indeed. Those who profess to be Chrisitans might try to remember that Jesus preached love they neighbor, not hate thy enemy.

"When you put your trust in the sword, you lose the cross."

Perfect. Do you know if this is a quote or something grew on his cabbage plot?

No idea. But I think he made it up.
