Excerpt from God Our Refuge and Strength in This War: A Discourse Before the Congregations of the First and Second Presbyterian Churches, on the Day of Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer, Appointed by President Davis, Friday, Nov. 15, 1861
That war is an evil, and often, a sore and terrible evil, and a thing at variance with the Spirit of the Gospel, is what no Christian can for a moment doubt. But these facts do not place it beyond the employment of God, as a means of work ing out His purposes on earth. Sickness, suffering, famine and pestilence, are also evils, yet God employs them in this way, and having declared that the wrath of man shall praise Him, He may also use war to effect His designs among nations. Had there been no sin, there would have been no war, as there would have been no suffering of any other kind; but as long as there is 8111 In the world, so long may we expect to find this huge, colossal scourge - this Moloch of evils - among men. Indeed, our Lord expressly declares that wars and rumors of Wars shall be among the signs that shall herald the end, so that our fond dreams of a universal peace, when in millennial bless edness, men shall beat their swords into plough-shares, and their spears into pruning-hooks, may be realized only in those final scenes that lie beyond the great day, and not on this side of it, in the new heavens and new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
