This is very powerful and reminds me of how I and my country were complicit in supporting the Iraq invasion. If any should enlist the Old Testament to justify "Holy War" may I suggest "The Old Testament Case for Non-Violence" by Matthew Curtis Fleischer. It helped me a lot to see past my conflict with a God who seemed to have a multiple personality disorder.That conflict has been swallowed up in the resulting oneness that I enjoy with the real God through Jesus, the express image of the Father.

....Not to mention how the Old Testament was used as a means of justification to the genocide of America's Indigenous population....but nobody wants to hear how that closed minded group thinking of colonialism is alive and well in some churches! History should re-written and taught that the new world was not founded on "christian/Christ Like" principals, but by wicked acts of violence by religious fundamentalist. Now please excuse me while I go and exercise Matthew 6 vs. 14 in my life....

If a man says, I love God, and hates his brother, he is a liar: for he that loves not his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? John 4:20
