God is Not a Pacifist

The Bible is not a pacifist book. Christianity is not a pacifist religion. Pacifism is humanism. The Mennonites and the Anabaptists are not Protestants, they're not Evangelicals, they are humanists. It is not the radical branch of the reformation. It is the humanist attempt to hijack the reformation. There is nothing Christian about pacifism. Pacifism has a false idea of God; it thinks God is soft and weak. It doesn't understand the wrath of God, the holiness of God. Pacifism has a false idea of man: it thinks that man is basically good. But, the bible makes it clear, and the Reformers reiterated this: man is basically depraved, sinful and selfish. Pacifism has a false idea of the reality of the world. It thinks that the world is able to be improved by laws. It cannot be. The world can be improved by the regeneration of individuals." ~Peter Hammond
