Christian warfare: the Biblical way to wage peace

The Bible brings an overall message of peace. It speaks of peace as a divine gift or blessing. Not once but six times the Bible calls Deity "the God of peace." See Rom. 15:33; Rom. 16:20; II Cor. 13:1 1; Phil. 4:9; I Thess. 5:23; Heb. 13:20.

There can be no conflict in God, since He is all-harmonious. His peacefulness is expressed in His creation, spiritual and harmonious man, made in His likeness. On the human scene, however, where discordant elements appear to coexist with concordant elements, God-given peace must be zealously won and watchfully defended. And Christ Jesus, who exemplified perfect manhood and came to humanity as the Prince of Peace, showed us how to do this.
