Frank L. Hoffman Interviewed - Why is evil normal in our society? Should we protest it?
Answer by Frank L. Hoffman - 21 May 2003
Dear Colin and Others:
You bring up some very good points about the ungodliness of depleted uranium weapons, but I believe we need to look a little further.
I'm not sure that concentrating our efforts to eliminate depleted uranium weapons is any different from trying to mop up water that is overflowing from a clogged sink that also has a leaky faucet, because it doesn't stop the root problem. We put effort into eliminating chemical and biological weapons, yet we still have land mines that continue to kill and maim years after they were planted, which is not unlike the depleted uranium in its final result.
The problem is our worldwide inability to resolve problems without resorting to war and violence. This in itself is ungodly, but the root cause is our unwillingness to love one another as God loves us.
Let's go back and look at the surface problem: Some people build a tank to kill other people, because they have failed to resolve their root problem. Then others build a weapon to kill the tank, because they also have failed to resolve the root problem. This in turn spreads radioactivity and causes other problems, because of a lack of love.
Now, let's look at this from the root problem: The use of any weapon is evil, and not only those made with depleted uranium, because they are intended to be used to kill and destroy. So what does the world do? They divide themselves into camps to justify the use of their evil weapons while condemning the other camps for their likewise evil weapons. And the problem continues.
This problem is compounded because Christians are in differing camps, and they have become part of the problem, rather than part of the solution. Until we become unified as peacemaking children of God, who we are called to be, the root problem will not be repaired and evil will continue to overflow the sinks of our global society until we drown in its effluent.
In the Love of the Lord,
