War & Violence


There are diverse views within the body of Christ with respect to war and violence, particularly those who reject war even in self-defense. While we do not share this particular view, neither are we war fanatics or advocates of indiscriminate violence.


Those who have witnessed war would surely agree with Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman who said, "War is hell." He was right. No matter how "just" a war might be, it is still one of the ultimate expressions of mankind's sinful nature and inability to love God and live peacefully with his neighbor. War is, however, a fact of our times and in God's history. Even if you don't condone it that doesn't mean you can't learn from it.


Civil War history (all history for that matter) is special because of the work God was doing in our nation and the world, not just because large armies fought each other. Civil War Dads is not about the glorification of war or violence. Rather, it is about the biblical principles of leadership, service, and sacrifice. The Civil War merely provides tangible examples of these principles in action.


Civil War Dads also seeks to honor the hundreds of thousands of men who gave "the last full measure of devotion" for their beliefs in the Civil War. Only through the study and application of history's lessons to our lives today can we appreciate the manifold blessings of God and freedoms we enjoy. Whether we agree with war or not, it's tough to argue with those who selflessly died for us:

"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13
