War and Peace

From “Jesus for President” a book written by Shane Claiborne and Chris Haw:
“We are seeing more and more that the church has fallen in love with the state and that this love affair is killing the church’s imagination. the powerful benefits and temptation of running the world’s largest superpower have bent the church’s identity. Having power at its fingertips, the church often finds ‘guiding the course of history’ a more alluring goal than following the crucified  Christ. Too often the patriotic values of pride and strength triumph over the spiritual virtues of humility, gentleness, and sacrificial love.”
