Chuck Carlson and Craig Hanson of We Hold These Truths explore Chuck’s article, “Mainline Churches Take Lead Toward World Peace,” in this 27-minute podcast. Find out how mainline Christians are at the forefront of working for world peace.
Evangelical Christian churches, for the most part, either ignore the issue of peace or wholeheartedly support America’s serial wars while ignoring the teachings of Jesus, like “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called sons of God.” (Matthew 5:9). There are even evangelical preachers who pray for war or the killing of an enemy. (See: “John Hagee with Benny Hinn: Praying for War in the Name of Jesus” and “Christian Zionist Leaders Hardly Peacemakers“)
