It is written: “The heart is deceitful above all things, and is exceedingly perverse and corrupt and severely, mortally sick! Who can know it [perceive, understand, be acquainted with his own heart and mind]? -Jeremiah 17:9 Amplified Bible “Scatter the people that delight in war.” -Psalm 68:30
Satan, the man of sin is a liar and a murder from the beginning. […beginning of time] (John 8:44). Satan, a created being, rebels against True Eternal Living God, and sets himself up (usurpation) in place of God. Satan’s spirit is hatred towards everything God has created, and is every bit real in our world today… do not forget this! All people/humans are born in a fallen state of mind and operate in Satan’s kingdom until Jesus saves them and renews their mind! This page depicts Satan’s historic carnage and helps you see his signature “calling card” (kill, steal, destroy- John 10:10) This page will also put faces to evil people who worship Satan, not God (Christ Jesus). There is never a pretty picture of war, and war can never produce peace because these are extreme opposites that can never be combined! War is a racket Religions and the Immorality of War
“We must never delude ourselves into thinking that physical power is a substitute for moral power, which is the sign of national greatness. –Adlai E. Stevenson (1900-1965); Quotationary, Leonard Loyd Frank
Daniel Myerson, author of Blood and Splendor, gives understanding of psychopaths of power. Daniel “explores the demons that drove them (Nero, Ivan the Terrible, Hitler, Stalin and Saddam Hussein) to such violent extremes and reveals how the extravagance of their lives and the complexity of their obsessions were played out through their political actions with global consequences“. Blood and Splendor exposes the madness, cunning, even genius that propels these men to power.
There are plenty more still trying today even within America. Keep your eyes on politicians: 5.(politics) is: the use of strategy or intrigue in obtaining power or status.
What was ancient is also modern. Evil clothes itself in national domination as did the Axis powers in WW II, as groups trying to corrupt a neighborhood, or individuals attempting to exploit the weak and vulnerable. Those who sell themselves to evil are often very cunning. They use the threat of violence and violence itself to achieve their end. Shrewd in avoiding the law, they sometimes even corrupt the law enforcement forces to do their bidding. –Robert Branson, www.wordaction.com Vol.35, No. 4
“Whereas the mindset of Jesus was deeply trenched in the culture of peace, the mindset of most of our US government officials is deeply ingrained in the culture of war.” America in True Perspective –Charles Mercieca, Ph.D. President International Association of Educators for World Peace Dedicated to United Nations Goals of Peace Education, Environmental Protection, Human Rights & Disarmament
United States Freedom From War 1961 Although disarmament is a good direction to head, it cannot solve man’s dilemma based upon Holy Scripture- guns or no guns, guns do nothing to stop a man from hating (Matt. 5:21-22). The idea of a U.N. Peace Force equipped with agreed types and quantities of armaments never resolves the “spirit” behind them. Who can be trusted to have the “bigger guns” so as not to have an evil dictatorship? History: “The most pernicious [treacherous/harmful] form of tyranny is that which disguises itself as a benefactor [kindly helper] to its victims.” -Robert L. Schulz AND “The means of a defense against foreign danger historically have become the instruments of tyranny at home.” – James Madison Fourth U.S. President
“Under different circumstances we could have been friends.” -No Parachute: a fighter pilot in World War I; letters written in 1917 by Arthur Stanley Gould Lee.
“Robert Oppenheimer, ‘the father’ of the atomic bomb… warned that the atomic bomb was a weapon of indiscriminate terror that made America more vulnerable to attack. The only defense against nuclear terrorism, Oppenheimer believed, was the elimination of all nuclear weapons.” -American Prometheous, Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin (History Book Club)
“The framers of the Constitution firmly believed in government under law. They wanted to protect the country from tyranny in any form. They believed that a misguided majority might be as dangerous to good government under law as a privileged minority or a power mad dictator.” –Retired Otter Valley Union High School (Brandon, Vermont) Book: Rise of the American Nation, HBJ, ISBN –0-15-376030-3
“Western Democracy, as it functions today, is diluted Nazism or Fascism. At best it is merely a cloak to hide the Nazi and Fascist tendencies of imperialism.” -Mohandas K. Gandi, 1940
“All of the dictatorships glorified force. Compelling the people to work for ‘bullets rather than butter, they converted their industries to war production. Their major efforts were devoted to building powerful military machines.” -Rise of the American Nation, HBJ; 1982; This was recently in Otter Valley High School, Brandon, Vermont (USA) Cost of war in Dollars

“… Yasser Arafit, who was one of the worst monsters of this and the last century, has finally gone to his “reward.” He was a truly evil and wicked man. While he was not able to operate on that large a plane, he was certainly in the same evil league as Adolf Hitler or Josef Stalin.” -Gerardo Joffe
