Re: Pacifism

My apologies for the delay in response...Life, etc. I found it helpful to understand that non-violence is not inaction. Avoiding reciprocal violence doesn't mean that one does nothing. In fact, love demands action in the cases you list above and others, for both the victim and the aggressor. This ma...

Re: Pacifism

Yet the Centurion found great faith in Christ, but was able to serve a nation who's main purpose was world domination. The story of Cornelius is interesting, as it describes him as a God-fearing, just and upright man working in the Roman army or police, prior to the gospel, but we aren't provided a...

Re: suicide and mental illness

Positive and negative emotions are blocked. Such as conviction, remorse, hope; all feelings that when felt would lend themselves t...

Re: Pacifism

how can a soldier obey Jesus and perform his duties? (Schoel) “… like any job, we want to do our job with all our might and be the best.

Re: suicide and mental illness

I'll offer my own observations, which are based upon my own close observations and reading. ... Thanks for the feedback... I did not realize that all "happy pills" are not created equal.

Re: Pacifism

... Upon coming to Christ, I have became almost a complete pacifist and anti-nationalist. ...

While neither she nor I nor any of our kids are on any of these types of medications, she has a sister and a close friend who are. The discussion revolved around her friend, who had a rough childhood with ...
