War - worldly war and spiritual war

        | By Rev. Julian Duckworth

Wars originate from the love of dominion and from cruelty, which are diametrically opposed to charity. They are permitted because mankind must live in freedom, and yet they are also under providence in terms of their outcome. Spiritually 'war' is about our personal work in confronting what is within ourselves that is against the things of God.
