Eugene Peterson quote

For a time, writ large in the headlines, war is perceived as an evil, and there are prayers for peace.  But not for long, for it is quickly glamorized as patriotic or rationalized as just.  But war is a red horse [rf. Rev. 6:4], bloody and cruel, making life miserable and horrid.
  ...  The perennial ruse is to glorify war so that we accept it as a proper means of achieving goals.  But it is evil.  It is opposed by Christ.  Christ does not sit on the red horse, ever.
