Christian Pacifism
Comments by Stephen Augustine 16 Jan 2002


I'm shutting down my computer in just a bit and heading out of town for a week so I won't say much right now.  I don't have a "gripe" with your comments as much as I think I have a different point of view.  If you think this is relevant to the V-C list I will be happy to continue the discussion there.

However, I guess I don't really understand what you mean when you are asking me to "prove the contrary".  Can you please explain a bit more?  Also, could you please expound further on what you mean by "demonstrating the courage of your convictions" and the even-handed application of critiques?  I am not an academician and perhaps I am missing something here.


Isaiah writes about the Messiah as being "The Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6).  Jesus calls upon all believers to become peacemakers, and says, "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons [children] of God" (Matthew 5:9).  Paul writes, "For the anxious longings of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons [children] of God" (Romans 8:19).
