Re:    Rules of Conduct: The First War of the        Twenty-first Century

You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.  But I say to you, 

1. Do not resist one who is evil.

But if any one strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also; and if any one would sue you and take your coat, let him have your cloak as well; and if any one forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles.

You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' 

2. But I say to you, Love your enemies and 

3. pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven

for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you salute only your brethren, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?

4. You, therefore, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

(Matthew 5:38-48)

So have no fear of them; for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. What I tell you in the dark, utter in the light; and what you hear whispered, proclaim upon the housetops. 

5. And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul;

rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father's will.  But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.

Matthew 10:26-31
Jesus Grieves for the City
And when he drew near and saw the city he wept over it, saying, "Would that even today you knew the things that make for peace! But now they are hid from your eyes. For the days shall come upon you, when your enemies will cast up a bank about you and surround you, and hem you in on every side, and dash you to the ground, you and your children within you, and they will not leave one stone upon another in you; because you did not know the time of your visitation                    .                          Luke 19:41-44


The loving heart of our Lord Jesus is broken yet again as he grieves for New York City, and for America and the world, just as he expressed his great grief long ago at the coming destruction of his beloved city, Jerusalem.  He grieves with every human being who suffers from the destruction and loss of life that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001. Men still do not know the things that make for peace.

The Illusions of War
Richard Le Gallienne
     I abhor,
     And yet how sweet
     The sound along the marching street
     Of drum and fife!  And I forget
     Wet eyes of widows, and forget
     Broken old Mothers, and the whole
     Dark Butchery without a soul.

     Without a soul--save this bright drink
     Of heady music, sweet as death:
     And even my peace-abiding feet
     Go marching with the marching street;
     For yonder, yonder, goes the fife,
     And what care I for human life?

     The tears fill my astonished eyes,
     And my full heart is like to break;
     And yet 'tis all embannered lies,
     A dream those little drummers make.

     O, it is wickedness to clothe
     Yon hideous grinning thing that stalks
     Hidden in music, like a queen
     That in a garden of glory walks,
     Till good men love the thing they loathe!

     Art, thou hast many infamies,
     But not an infamy like this.
     O, snap the fife, and still the drum,
     and show the monster as she is.
