What we're about
--Are you tired of the modern Church's cheerleading for genocidal wars led by the state on behalf of the corporations that control it? --Do you wonder how the religion founded by Jesus of Nazareth (killed by the state) changed from one of peace (love and pray for your enemies, "turn the other cheek") to one of war (kill your enemies, Augustine's "just war" theory)? --Do you want the Church to return to its historic mission--the one mandated by its founder? This group is for Christians who want to understand the principles Jesus Christ taught and who want to study/discuss Christian Pacifism. Join and discuss how the mission of the church has been systematically subverted and what we can do about it. “The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state. It must be the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool. If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority.” -- Martin Luther King Jr.
