War will never be given the adjective “beautiful” because the very nature of war is one of death and destruction. You won’t find a commander describing the advancement of his army towards the enemy as being the same thing as watching a sunset over the watery horizon. The reason, of course, is because war is the breakdown of the image of God in man, and this is far from alluring. When peace is side-stepped, war is espoused, and when war comes about no one is thinking about flowers and art. War has its bruises and scars, and we better make sure it’s the right kind of bruises and scars.
Perhaps even worse than the war itself is the unrighteous means of fighting the war. What we don’t want to see are soldiers who don’t know how to use their weapons, nor do we want soldiers completely oblivious to the various strategies and tactics in advancing towards the goal. We can’t have our infantryman completely inept at cleaning the gun, and we certainly can’t have the cooks feeding the soldiers toxic-laden foods.
Speaking of toxins and mandated vaccination, we have a self-inflicted problem in our current campaign against tyranny and I’m here to sound the alarm. Someone has to do it.
At this point in our war against obstreperous humanism, Christians have by and large proven themselves to be the inept infantryman. With mandatory vaccination for schools becoming the norm in places like New York and California, many Christians have rightly raised their own blood pressure. However, I have to confess that the ire, though red as wrath itself, is completely injudicious. It’s the hypocrisy in the war. It’s short-sighted. Our anger is aimed at the wrong thing…
