A Journal for Protestant Chaplains free pdf Excerpt from A Journal for Protestant Chaplains Dr. Harris, who comes from England, was educated in this country. He received his A. B., A. M. and D. D. degrees from Dickinson College, Carlisle, Pennsylvania- his B. D. from Drew Theological Seminary- and his Litt. D. from Lincoln Memorial University. He has served pastorates at the Greenwood Avenue Church, Trenton, New Jersey- St. Luke's Church, Long Branch- Grace Church, New York, New York, and since 1924 has been minister of the Foundry Methodist Church, Washington, D. C. He is the author of The Blossoming Bough, Wings of the Morning, The Word Made Flesh, and The Candle and the Flame. There is nothing inherently good or bad about a sword. The quality of sharpened steel may depend on whether it is in the hands of a surgeon or a bandit. Earth's greatest Teacher admonished, "Put up your sword- for he that takes it shall perish by it." That sword was drawn in anger and vengeance. It was a bad sword. But Jesus also said, "I am not come to bring peace, but a sword." That sword unsheathed against evil was a good sword. All depends upon the purpose for which the blade is to be used. In ancient days the walls of ruined Jerusalem were rebuilt by toiler-soldiers with trowels in one hand and swords in the other. And as late as this summer gardeners have been seen with hoes in one hand and cans of poison spray in the other for the pests which attack their growing plants. Without swords, coerced men are compelled to cry "peace" when there is no peace and to surrender the most heavenly things to the most hellish forces. There is a sword bathed in heaven. If swords are in the hands only of those who cannot be trusted with them, then the only peace possible between the lion and the lamb - which it is prophesied shall some day lie down together - is for the lamb to lie down inside the lion. There are present-day appeasers of evil who would label that arrangement peace. But a peace dictated by unethical force is the peace of slaves. When a Prime Minister took an umbrella to Munich and no righteous sword, a glorious little democracy in the midst of Europe was thrown to the wolves in appeasement, a perfidy committed for peace in our time. A show of weakness will never bring in any day of peace. A nation must be strong to make its word for peace effective. A peace gained by constant retreat because of the threatening blackmail of superior force is not peace, but war.
