THE IMPORTANCE OF PEACE by Martin Luther

“Nothing good ever comes of violence.”

“Peace if possible, truth at all costs.”

“War is one of the greatest plagues that can afflict humanity; it destroys religion, it destroys states, it destroys families. Any scourge, in fact, is preferable to it. Famine and pestilence become as nothing in comparison with it. Pestilence becomes as nothing in comparison with it. Pestilence is the least evil of the three, and this therefore is why (King) David chose it, willing rather to fall into the hands of God than into those of pitiless man.” Martin Luther
