War is hell
An apology for minimizing the reality of the war in Vietnam and Korea. They were costly wars, any war is costly. My point in reaction to an article about the history of war was describing the reality of world wars being far more common that great periods of peace like we baby boomers have enjoyed.
If as a Christian I do not wish to fall into the trap of praying for the rapture or dropping out of current affairs. I believe the quality of life is a spiritual issue because of the pronouncements of God about all humanity. Every life counts, every place overrun with disorder and violence is tragic. We are to be proactive in working toward the kingdom come on earth part of the Lord's prayer.
