Celestial Lands The Religious Crossroads of Politics, Power, and Theology

“An End to All Wars” from the Universalist General Convention, 1790

“Although a defensive war may be considered lawful, yet we believe there is a time coming, when the light and universal love of the gospel, shall put an end to all wars. We recommend, therefore, to all churches in our communion, to cultivate the spirit of peace and brotherly love, which shall lead them to consider all mankind as brethren, and to strive to spread among them the knowledge of their Savior and Redeemer, who came into the world “not to destroy men’s lives, but to save them.”
