For from Zion will go forth the Law
Pacifism is a critical issue in our day.
"Pacifists" are often criticized for being willing to stand by and do nothing while their wife or daughter is raped.
This is slanderous, a violation of the Ninth Commandment.
Pacifists continually meet objections like those of Samuel Bacchiocchi:
It would be morally irresponsible to turn over one's wife to a rapist just to "keep peace."
This is a "straw man." Such critics cannot name a single pacifist who would do nothing to try to prevent or stop a rape. I've never met a pacifist (and I've met hundreds and lived with several) who would say to a rapist, "Here she is. Go for it. And peace to you." A pacifist believes in evil, and believes violence is evil. A pacifist would take prudent steps to stop evil, avoid evil, catch evil off guard, and evangelize evil, but would not, as many non-pacifists seem to advocate, start out immediately with lethal force. Many 2nd Amendment zealots would pull out their gun at the drop of the hat. At least that's the way they talk. Probably they are a bit more rational. Like Bacchiocchi.
Here's a simple question that will prove you are a pacifist.
Imagine you are "Star Trek" Captain Kirk of the U.S.S. Enterprise. You are walking down the street of a planet in the Deltoid Galaxy with one of your never-ending stream of beautiful women at your arm, when a large burly alien with the tattoo "I AM A RAPIST" across his forehead jumps out from a dark alley, grabs your female companion and says "I'm going to rape this woman!" You pull out your Phazer™ gun and . . . here's the question:
Do you set the Phazer to "stun" and quickly put the rapist to sleep and call the proper authorities, or do you set your Phazer to "maximum molecular disruption" and utterly obliterate the rapist, ending his life?
When given such a choice, only a sociopath would choose annihilation or lethal force. Everyone else is a "pacifist." It's that simple.
What happens if you're consistent with this innate, conscientious pacifism?
Answer: you will begin to change the world.
In many ways the most violent world in recorded history.
Christ is the Prince of Peace. His vassal-subjects must be committed to Peace. The Prince of Peace commanded us to love our enemies. True Christians are willing to follow Christ to the cross (Matthew 16:25; 1 Peter 2:21).
But the religion of Secular Humanism (America's State religion) teaches vengeance. Modern Man believes it's better to make someone else die for you than to give your life for another. Entire populations are organized on the principle of institutionalized vengeance.
The State was invented to replace Pax Christi with Pax Lamech, Pax Nimrod, Pax Pharaoh, Pax Babylonia, Pax Romana, and Pax Americana.
“The Christmas Conspiracy” is a conspiracy to crush the “New World Order” into powder (Daniel 2:44).
Biblical Law teaches us to pray and work for peace: personally, locally, globally. Obedience to Biblical Law will eliminate “the State.” Justice is altruistic, not adversarial.
Jesus Christ was executed as a threat to the “New World Order.” His followers must be prepared to be punished as “anarchists.”

The retreat from Christianity and the advance of Secular Humanism has paved the way for total war and endless genocide. The religion of evolutionism is the religion of genocide:
"Religion" (Christianity, the Bible) is sometimes blamed for war. This is an outrageous lie.
