War–the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial in Washington DC

The following quote is inscribed on the FDR Memorial in Washington DC.

I have seen war, I have seen war on land and on sea.

I have seen the blood running from the wounded.

I have seen the dead in the mud.

I have seen cities destroyed, I have seen children starving.

I have seen the agony of mothers and wives

I hate war.

The most violent and aggressive thing humans do is to wage war, and most wars are generally over the issue of who will rule, or possess the land. Jesus said “Blessed are the meek, the gentle, the humble, for it is THEY who will inherit the land.”

    “We have to announce to the principalities and powers that their time is up, that Jesus is Lord and that they are not, that the unchecked power of Mammon is an idol that has to be named and shamed, that the seductive blandishments of Aphrodite are a ghastly lie which has to be refuted and resisted, that the horrid trumpets of the war-god Mars appeal to all that is worst in us and will make the world a worse place. We know all this. We know we must resist paganism in all these forms in the name of Jesus the crucified and risen Lord.” -N.T. Wright
