    Not really, unfortunately. They shall more likely be called "red tinted liberals."

    I agree Dick. When peacemakers became law enforcers things changed.

    Jesus, if not who people generally say he was/is he was/is the greatest politician and psychologist ever, for who is venerated, read and studied and live by more than He or His words.

    Remember that, patriots, when ordered to bomb the cities and villages of some far away land for 'Peace.'

    It's quite obvious then that non-believers may end as the children of God.

    Robert, yep - our Father either exists or He doesn't; belief or non-belief doesn't really factor into it.

    Perhaps Jesus should elaborate further on the actual peacemaking process -- I still cannot fathom why so many Christians are so pro-military power. The apparent hypocrisy of putting faith in weapons and war is what turns so many real peacekeepers away from joining the congregation. If Christians do not practice what they preach (and worse, commit sin in the name of God), they are the source of their own oppression. The work of a Christian is of the heart -- it is heart-work. Peace within leads to peace without. Imagine if Christians REALLY practiced that (which is the goal). Salvation indeed! Merry Christmas!

    "give peace a chance" John Lennon. Another peacemaker to die a violent death. While there are more guns than guitars in the world then peace doesn't have a chance despite the teaching and the preaching. There is a huge gap between the formal teachings of Christ and the substantive practice of his (alleged) followers. Self interest in the form of salvation of the individual soul and the promise of life ever rather than the pursuit of Christian values on earth - kindness and compassion to ones fellow man - lie at the heart of this. As Banksy says: Peace on Earth, Goodwill to all men (terms and conditions apply)

    Mick, I do believe there ARE more guitars than guns which is why you hear more music than gunfire. And like guns stored at home, many musical instruments also go unused but are available for whenever the need may arise. Yes, let's make music not war!
