Spurgeon on War

Spurgeon on war for the believer:

"The Lord’s battles, what are they? Not the garment rolled in blood, not the noise, and smoke, and din of human slaughter. These may be the devil’s battles, if you please, but not the Lord’s. They may be days of God’s vengeance but in their strife the servant of Jesus may not mingle. Long have I held that war is an enormous crime; long have I regarded all battles as but murder on a large scale. The church, we affirm, can neither be preserved nor can its interests be promoted by human armies."
