Of recent there has been a lot of talk about an American or Israeli strike upon Iran.
Sometimes I get the impression that there are those who want a strike for the sake of just taking military action.
There are times when military action is necessary – but what must always be remembered is the effect conflict has upon countless people.
Humans are not born enemies.
Hostility is not a heritage given to us from God's image. It is from the selfish aspire of sin.
Any governance must ask itself what kind of a state it wants? And the consequences of that answer will follow.
Friendship equals peace, conflict equals war.
On the human scale, battle began with Cain wanting to live in a world without Abel.
Cain took action – and we have been suffering the consequences ever since.
Thank God for the grace of the Cross – where sin and death, by death, were defeated. Christ will never die, nor will God's love, patience, or grace.
He lives to redeem His creation – Halleluiah!
