The Insanity of Our Sanity

“I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell.” William Tecumseh Sherman War is truly hell and violence is sadistic, yet […]

A Timely Message About Peace

Peace, who has even heard of such a thing in our times, is it something new?

The Devil Adores the Christian Soldier

There are no Christian Patriots, a lie that’s everywhere believed, And as far as enduring suffering, God has closed His ears to thee.

The Most Powerful Weapon on Earth

The most unpleasant, and I must say stupid situation, I have ever found myself in is to have ownership of the most powerful weapon ever, without much caring about it or concern for its use.

Adapted from a book (Christian Non-Resistance) by Adin Ballou This is a reflection on the doctrine of non-resistance with respect to the underlying standard from which it proceeds, then on to the justification from which it originates, and then to the sub-principle of duty in which we understand the application. The Standard What is the […]
