Dear Colin and Others:
I appreciate the comment about my ability, but I'm not a special person. Each and every one of us has the potential to make dynamic changes in the world, if we want to. Our human problem is that we all too easily get discouraged when we don't see immediate results. We need to develop "staying power" and consistency, and the ability to encourage others to work with us.
Think of the greatest peacemaker of all time, The Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ. He never became an earthly king. He only encouraged others to take up the peace movement of God that He was presenting and to follow Him. Unfortunately, very few have been doing that. However, if more people followed in His peaceful footsteps, I truly believe that there would be considerably less violence in the world.
Think about something: If you have a clogged kitchen sink drain, and a leaky faucet, and your sink is overflowing, you will never solve the problem by soaking up the water in a sponge and wringing it out in the sink. The first thing to do is turn off the water supply to the sink. The second thing to do is unclog the drain. Then you can clean up the kitchen properly. But don't forget to repair the leaky faucet, too.
The same conditions are true of world peace. War is usually the result of a clogged peace movement and the constant drip of fear. The deployment of troops are as water overflowing your kitchen sink. To try to recall them without first establishing a peace movement is no different from using the sponge in the example above.
Be the peacemaker first. Encourage others to be peacemakers, too. Do not worry about arguing over the violent situations and getting your point across. Talk and live peace as an example before the world. If we all do this, we could change world opinion.
It's not a matter of who is right or wrong. We know that only peace and love and compassion are the solutions. We need to "put on" Jesus Christ, and continually encourage others to follow us, so that the world will see true non-violence and peace.
In the Love of the Lord,
