American leaders depend on patriotic, American Christians to support America's serial wars. Churches have a Jesus taught responsibility to oppose the social evil of war with at least as much vigor as we oppose starvation after a natural disaster in faraway places. Meanwhile, wars and the threat of war go on unchecked and under-reported by our churches. Our political leaders blame these serial wars on “hostile” little states that they vilify to keep our moral leaders quiet. Most churches fail to even pray for world peace. Does yours? Join Chuck Carlson and members of We Hold These Truths in this lively, 26 minute podcast about the importance of what Jesus taught: "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God (Matthew 5:9).
