Virtual war or peaceful surrender.

There can be no compromise in the war with this sinful world. The only option for sinners is to surrender to God.

“Just as rebellion leads to war, so surrender results in peace… The choice is ours—a virtual war with God or a peaceful surrender. Whichever we choose, we will find that God is more stubborn, more fierce, and more loving than we could possibly imagine. His call for us to surrender is unconditional, for the battle over our souls is intense. This is one war where victory would annihilate us and only surrender can save us.” Gary Thomas 

Joshua 11:18 Joshua made war a long time with all those kings.19There was not a city that made peace with the children of Israel, except the Hivites, the inhabitants of Gibeon. All the others they took in battle. 20For it was of the Lord to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, that He might utterly destroy them, and that they might receive no mercy, but that He might destroy them, as the Lord had commanded Moses.
