Reviews - What do customers think about The Christian Ethic of War?
A favorite of Oswald Chambers May 6, 2007
If you are new to Forsyth, you may find his 'profound-ness' a little too much at times. His writing is understandable enough but one needs to, in order to appreciate any of Forsyth's works, be truly attuned to the history of man and the many wars he has fought and the 'whole Bible' message (good news) of redemption by Christ.
"It...[is]...fatal fallacy of aiming at peace before righteousness as the bond of nations, and of pursuing the sympathetic fraternity of man without first securing the righteous Kingdom of God." (4)
"What the soul of the world most needs is neither interest, nor even sympathy, nor charm. It is power. It is moral power. And that is what positive Christian faith gives--power to see God's practical way, power to trust it, power to take it, power to pursue it, and power to secure it." (125)
"The teaching of Jesus is not the foundation of Christian ethic but is to be interpreted by that which is--namely the Redemption of the Cross as the moral crisis of the world and the creator of the new conscience in historic conditions." (193)
