Et Erit Iste Pax

"He shall stand firm and shepherd his flock
by the strength of the LORD,
in the majestic name of the LORD, his God;
and they shall remain, for now his greatness
shall reach to the ends of the earth;
he shall be peace." (Micah 5:4)

Notice the Things/Institutions that are NOT peace:

The U.N. is NOT Peace.
The U.S.A. is NOT Peace.
Canada is NOT Peace.
The E.U. is NOT Peace.
Russia is NOT Peace.
China is NOT Peace.
Wealth is NOT Peace.
Might is NOT Peace.
Communism is NOT Peace.
Capitalism is NOT Peace.
Democracy is NOT Peace.
Environmentalism is NOT Peace.
Pacifism is NOT Peace.
Sexual Liberty is NOT Peace.
Abortion is NOT Peace.
Buddhism is NOT Peace.
Hinduism is NOT Peace.
Islam is NOT Peace.


Some of the above institutions have their uses, some of the philosophies can placate, and some can even simulate peace. But, only in Christ can we truly find a real peace, a peace that can withstand the ravages and illusions of the above listed ideologies.
