Howard W. Hunter on the Christian concept of peace

Atonement“Consider…this instruction from Christ to his disciples. He said,

Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.’ (Matt. 5:44.)

Bombs-over-Libya“Think of what this admonition alone would do in your neighborhood and mine, in the communities in which you and your children live, in the nations which make up our great global family. I realize this doctrine poses significant challenge, but surely it is a more agreeable challenge than the terrible tasks posed for us by the war and poverty and pain the world continues to face.” (emphasis added)

Something to remember the next time a politician bloviates Satanically on the desperate “need” to bomb yet another country??
