War and Christianity


War and Christianity

I have always been opposed to any kind of war unless it is used in self-defense.  War is the worst way to settle any differences and to participate in such a thing is so stupid and evil that it boggles my mind.  Just watching a few videos of the carnage on the internet absolutely churns my stomach.  In fact, the European side of WW1 and WW2 were among “Christian” nations.  And as of this writing, we have a war between the Ukraine and Russia for whatever reasons, and the majority of each population is “Christian.”  Go figure.

I have been studying philosophy lately, and I found some interesting quotes from Voltaire:

“War is the greatest of all crimes; and yet there is no aggressor who does not color his crime with the pretext of justice. “ ——-Voltaire

The aggressor always has some kind of excuse to attack another nation.  And none of it is for a good reason other than to destroy mankind so that they can take control.  All governments as of this writing in my view, are nothing more than slave states with little to no benefit for the general population.  The “powers that be” are also the losers but they just don’t realize it yet.  Look at their behavior and that will tell the story about who they really are.  This is why the natural order or natural law is so useful because it accurately points out the good and the bad.

“Christianity, is the most ridiculous, the most absurd and bloody religion that has ever infected the world. “———Voltaire

Many people call Judaism a satanic cult or of the occult But they forget or don’t realize that Christianity is critically built upon it.  Every church that I attended twisted the Bible to  their own perspective.  It drove me nuts and I finally just had to give it up because I don’t like having my mind manipulated.  The Bible has many versions and it would be impossible for it to be the complete word of God.  It could be a false God but not the one who created everything.  I’m to the point to where I think the Bible is disclosure rather than a foundation built on the truth of the real God.  I’m more of a deist now.  I believe in the real God.  Beyond that, I don’t know all of the answers but religion has more confusion than answers.  The comment about “bloody religion” seems to be more realistic.  

“Of all religions, Christians should of course inspire the most tolerance, but until now, Christians have been the most intolerant of all men.” —————-Voltaire

Christians appear to be loving and moral but the problem is that if it is false, it will never get a good result.

“For seventeen hundred years the Christian sect has done nothing but harm.” —————Voltaire

Voltaire lived from 1694-1778 and 245 years later, we still have “Christian” nations killing each other in useless wars.

“The Jews are of all peoples the grosses, the most ferocious, the most fanatical, and the most absurd.” ——-Voltaire

If Judaism is a satanic cult, then the above comment seems to be true.  There are many Jews within the governments of the world who are making crack-brain decisions that are not good for anyone.  But again, Christianity is built on Judaism and perhaps this is why Christians don’t object much to the communist nonsense we all have to put up with.

“To make a vow for life is to make oneself a slave.” ———-Voltaire

Taking vows or swearing oaths is very damaging to having a good life.  Maybe these wedding vows people take are destroying marriages.  It would be easier for the couple to simply declare the status of husband and wife and get going with their lives.  Vows are like “binding your soul with a bond.”  I believe that swearing oaths is a form of lying and they produce nothing but evil.  Any group or organization that are built on oaths are going to fail.  We’re starting to see that now.

“The safest course is to do nothing against one’s own conscience, with this secret , we can enjoy life and have no fear from death.” —————Voltaire

This is an excellent instruction.  If any of us have a problem with our own conscience we should not do it.  All we have to do is to pay attention to it and our lives will be much better.  We should be using right reason and common sense along with being in agreement with our own conscience.

“What is not in nature can never be true.” ——-Voltaire

The natural order is in agreement with the real God who created everything.  We don’t need to read a lot of books as they can distort and confuse the mind.  In observing the natural law, we can get to know everything we need to know without being mislead.  Wars exist outside of nature and mankind wasn’t made to participate in such activities.  Any military should be for defensive purposes only and not the massacres that have happened over the centuries.
