Christians and the State

Posted by Jesse on November 26, 2008

UPDATE: Dr Vance is interviewed [mp3] on the American View. [Veterans Day Exclusive]

Although many of these essays reference contemporary events, the principles discussed in all of them are timeless: war, militarism, empire, interventionism, the warfare state, and the Christian attitude toward these things. It is Dr. Vance’s contention that Christian enthusiasm for the state, its wars, and its politicians is an affront to the Lord Jesus Christ, contrary to Scripture, and a demonstration of the profound ignorance many Christians have of history.

Economy? People are still fighting and Dying! The matter is one of War or Peace.

Posted by Jesse on October 23, 2008

I know more than enough to be skeptical of the actions taken, or accepted as necessary, by our “leaders” that I feel like I can safely assume the worst.

Sure the economy is a big issue for people. Not so much because the vast majority of americans are concerned about the Nation being bankrupt, or because the US military spending adds up to more than all the nations combined, but because they themselves, individuals and families, are concerned about their own well-being first and foremost. As it should be.

But the fact remains that tensions are high and the consequences of this governments military actions are much greater. Our fearful leaders would have the populace believe that this nation will ever remain righteous in this fight, and that those, like me, who oppose these aggressive actions are not only unpatriotic but are unworthy of any voice in the national media. Because, as the “neocon death-squad” logic concedes, War is Peace, and Occupation is Liberation.

Only individuals have the power. Until enough people come together and make a stand, peace will continue to be out of reach and war waged in the people’s name. Unfortunately, this is how the system currently works, legal or illegal. People have to take responsibility for themselves and demand a change. It’s supposed to be a two-way street. Right now, it’s one way by decree, and that is unjust and tyrannical.

“The defense policy of the United States is based on a simple premise: The United States does not start fights. We will never be an aggressor. – Ronald Reagan” (Liar)
