James and John want to call down fire upon a Samaritan village. Jesus responds: You know not what manner of spirit you are of. The Son of Man came not to destroy mens lives but to save them. Perhaps the issue isnt calling down fire, but that spirit you are of. There is a Spirit of Creation and a spirit of desecration. James and John want to call down fire and then are burned by the fire. The Fire destroys pride, and creates people in Gods Image. Holy Fire is Grace. Be kind to your enemies and you call down that Fire.
