Eberhard Arnold on Violent Defence

No one who has heard the clear call of Jesus’ Spirit can resort to violence for protection. Jesus abandoned every privilege and every defense. (1 Pet. 2:21– 23) He took the lowliest path. And that is His challenge to us: to follow Him on the same way that He went, never departing from it either to the left or to the right. Do you really think you can go a different way from Jesus on such decisive points as property and violence and yet claim to be His disciple?

Eberhard Arnold, Oct. 1931, Quoted in God's Revolution

Everything is Terrible: Caring Voices Edition

I was reminded of this song tonight while browsing the blog Everything is Terrible! I remember when this song came out during the Gulf War, and I also remember playing it over and over (when I wasn't listening to MC Hammer of course!).

That said, this video is a riot- especially when you get to the end and see all the celebrities. And there is also Gary Busey. Yes, watch for Gary Busey.
