Therefore it is LOGICAL that it was GODS will that the temple was cast down and over One million Jews was killed in that siege.
Is God so weak that he would allow prosperity of those who cast down his house and slay his people. It was HIS WILL.
These men had rejected his son and looked to false teachings as their salvation.
They mocked the truth and followed the lie.
How is mocking a sign of teaching and gentleness?
The pharisee will mock, Christ set about teaching.
Is it the heart of Christ to teach or mock?
Judea had undergone several revolts against Rome.
So the Roman Legions marched in and put a end to the whole mess.

5 And when Jesus entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, imploring Him, 6 and saying, “Lord, my servant is lying paralyzed at home, fearfully tormented.”
7 Jesus *said to him, “I will come and heal him.”

A Close family member of mine recently put a loaded shotgun to his forehead and pulled the trigger.
The doctors have no way they can explain why the bullets never entered his skull or did other massive damage.
He was out of the hospital in a week.
If God has a reason to keep you alive then even a gunshot to the forehead will not kill you.
Also why is it you act he same God can remove evil leaders with out violence is unable to keep those he wills alive in violence?
Not by us running around and killing as we may.
If we like freedom then we had best support and defend thru MILITARY and POLICE service those powers who support freedom.
Even King David had many philistine subjects who served under him because he was just in rule.
If you do not like the freedom and ways of the American government perhaps you should repatriate to a country that is less warlike and more Christ like , as you see Christ to be.
