Chapter Three: Stillness
What does the Bible say about War? Is Jesus some pansy who will let bad guys run the world without taking action? Is Jesus some gun-toting adrenaline-junkie who pulls triggers first and asks questions later? Are we even asking the right questions? This chapter poetically reflects on the concept of war and illuminates what the Bible says about it. Price is set at $0.001 per word. More
America loves war. We choose it every generation when we send our noble G.I.'s around the world to die for our fears and our freedoms. Every year our national budget chooses war through military spending while schools, children, and the elderly starve. War is the beating heart of the American identity, but if that is so can we still be a "Christian" nation? This chapter uses a poetic and ruminating tone to uncover what the Bible says about war and to nudge the unquestioned idol of American war-worship into the light.
