This issue of Life in the Spirit will address the question: “Is the Russian-Ukrainian War a Just War?” from three perspectives – from the perspectives of U.S./NATO, Russia, and our Lord.
The Ukrainian people are experiencing tremendous suffering with this conflict, as they battle for their lives, their homeland, and their future. And Ukraine has cried out to the West for assistance in beating back the Russians. (I visited Ukraine many years ago, and fell in love with the Ukrainian people and the natural beauty of their country.)
Two critical questions confront leaders of Western nations:
- Is this a just war (i.e. is it justified for us to become involved)?
- Should we be involved, and if so, in what ways? (Do we set any limits?)
This June 14 issue of Life in the Spirit addresses these questions, as well as how our Lord sees this situation, and how it will affect our daily lives. You can see it here:
Jesus chastised the Pharisees for not understanding the times, so we too need to understand the times, so we can act responsibly, always drawing close to the Lord for peace and guidance.
Blessings and love to you this day,
Mark Peterson, Ph.D.
