Quote of the Day

“We [Brethren in Christ] know of no word or act of Jesus Christ that can rightly be made to justify any of His true children to engage in the blood-shedding business. . . . [Their] citizenship is not of the earth . . . . Their warfare is not carnal but spiritual.”

— George B. Detweiler, nineteenth-century Brethren in Christ minister and editor of the Evangelical Visitor, in an editorial published April 16, 1917 — ten days after the U.S. declared war on Germany.
