Upon catching sight of God everyone automatically assumes that they win.
But the problem with winning is that someone has to lose.
God does not win one side over another.
He makes peace between them.
This is reinforced by the fact that He does not destroy even those who have turned against Him. God is not the enemy even of His own enemies.
So don't try to win but make peace with your enemies.
The first step is forgiveness for whatever they may have done to you or your loved ones or your side or others. (Bury the hatchet.)
To God there are no sides.
The object is peaceful co-existence without interference or threats of violence.
God will even let Satanists live.
He will not punish them or force them to conform.
He will try and make peace with them.
This is wisdom.
Don't take up arms.
Pray for peace.
Empower the powerless.
Peace on earth and goodwill to all.
