Description

Excerpt from War Inconsistent With the Doctrine and Example of Jesus Christ: In a Letter to a Friend; Recommended to the Perusal of the Professors of Christianity When I saw you lately, you may remember a part of our conver sation turned on war - and perhaps you may think me singular in some of my sentiments, as controverting the' received opinion of men in general. I have therefore devoted an hour or two to state to you further my particular views on this subject. It is really astonishing to observe with how much composure mankind, and many persons, acknowledged to be among the best men living, admit the propriety Of war3 and while they in gene ral terms deplore the misery of it, maintain its necessity in some shape or other 3 and for the most part, in that of defence 3 under this mask, the great adversary of men has forced his impositions on them, while they seem not to think of discussing the subject, as to the propriety of it, in every shape, though they profess to act on christian principles. For my own part, I cannot help 'wishs ing to see it become a subject of universal discussion, till the renunciation of the tenet shall spread itself as wide as the misery Of it has hitherto done.
