“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God” (Matthew 5:9)
A simple and pretty straight forward idea isn’t it, or is it?
Politically speaking peacemaking has degraded to enforcement.
The question becomes when do ulterior motives, like the quest for oil, and or the need to spread your own democratic ideal, become more the reason than the edict of Christ?
Do we see the “Sons of God” as dead heros on the battlefield of foreign lands, or martyred priests and pastors killed in inner city violence?
My question and challenge to our little blogging community is to define who are the Peacemakers or what makes a peacemaker?
