War & Peace-A Contradiction?

It may seem contradictory to pray for peace when many of our own soldiers are fighting far away from home in foreign fields.

Many people think that if only we got rid of all our weaponry then the world would have peace. The problem with this thinking is that it is not 'weapons' that are the real evil, it is sin.

If the world decided tomorrow to destroy every weapon ever invented without first changing themselves from within, then we would have achieved absolutely nothing.

How did Cain kill Abel? What killed Abel? Sin.

While praying for peace, we must not attack our sons and daughters in the military who are fighting for the freedoms we hold dear. These brave young men and women also need our prayers.

If we really want change then let us go back to the basics and pray that God's Love will still the savage beast which lurks within us all.
