Peacemakers for the world

The world bristles with armaments powerful enough to destroy humanity many times over, and the number and sophistication of these weapons is growing. Dedicated Christians have an increased responsibility to pray for peace and to practice peace in their own lives. By individually unhooking ourselves from the belief that war is valuable or inevitable, we will be contributing to the balance of peace for all mankind.

When Christ Jesus said, "Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God," Matt. 5:9. he was not giving his listeners a simple platitude. His words were much more than that. He understood that in the most profound sense, to be a peacemaker is to be a child of God—to reflect the one divine Mind. By identifying with our true nature as God's idea—spiritual man—we array ourselves on the side of immortality and goodness instead of destructiveness and death.
