War? Thinking it through . . .

If a famous American general can say, “War is hell,” the rest of us should be able to also look at war in an honest, non-nationalistic way. Here are a few of my original thoughts about war.

If you think about it without nationalistic pride, war seems to cause far more death, destruction, pain, and evil, than it prevents.

War is countless cruelties committed for a country’s cause.

In war people set aside their conscience to obey the orders of a person who out ranks them.

War is more kill than thrill — more gory than glory.

Evil is in all human beings. Perhaps, the best way to fight it is for each individual to start within.

It’s easy to see evil in other people and other nations. It’s much harder to see evil in ourselves and our nation

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
