Costly Withdrawal Is the Price To Be Paid for a Foolish War

The Militant Pacifist enjoyed this quote:

"For misleading the American people, and launching the most foolish war since Emperor Augustus in 9 B.C sent his legions into Germany and lost them, Bush deserves to be impeached and, once he has been removed from office, put on trial along with the rest of the president's men. If convicted, they'll have plenty of time to mull over their sins."

Under the Mercy

One of the Militant Pacifist’s friends always concludes his e-mails with the phrase “under the mercy.” As the Militant Pacifist contemplated this recently, he was reminded of how wonderful the mercy of God is - and how blessed is the person who can in truth write "under the mercy."

If it were not for the mercy of the LORD, where would you be? Thank God for His mercy. Thank Him for the 70 x 7. Thank the LORD – for His mercy endureth forever!

“It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD (Lamentations 3:22-26).”

Disproving the State: Four Arguments Against Government

The Militant Pacifist recommends that you check out the essay linked in the title of this posting.

Since the Militant Pacifist believes in the Christian doctrine of human fallen-ness, he cannot imagine a logically sound argument in support of humanly instituted government. Why (in the light of logic) should one depraved man submit or yield to another? The Militant Pacifist cannot determine any reason why, except that one of the depraved men has a sword in his hand! And that is not a good "reason." That is simply survival.

But then, the Militant Pacifist's thought has been swayed. He resides within a divine monarchy (a holy nation), a kingdom definitely not "of this world."

War Pigs

"I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war." Psalm 120:7

As the Militant Pacifist contemplated (during a recent daily commute) the massive destruction and bloodshed of the imperialist wars launched by United States government in the 20th and 21st centuries, the strains of an old rock-n-roll song entered his ears. The lyrics to Black Sabbath's War Pigs are reproduced below.

Generals gathered in their masses,
Just like witches at black masses.
Evil minds that plot destruction,
Sorcerers of death's construction.

In the fields the bodies burning,
As the war machine keeps turning.
Death and hatred to mankind,
Poisoning their brainwashed minds.
Oh Lord, yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away,
They only started the war.
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor, yeah.

Time will tell on their power minds,
Making war just for fun.
Treating people just like pawns in chess,
Wait till their judgment day comes, yeah.

Now in darkness world stops turning,
Ashes where the bodies burning.
No more War Pigs have the power,
Hand of God has struck the hour.
Day of Judgment, God is calling,
On their knees the war pigs crawling.
Begging mercies for their sins,
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings.
Oh Lord, yeah!
