There is indeed so much of violence in our societies these days.
According to Mahatma Gandhi - “The Roots of Violence: Wealth without work, Pleasure without conscience, Knowledge without character, Commerce without morality, Science without humanity, Worship without sacrifice, Politics without principles”
“The main goal of the future is to stop violence. The world is addicted to it.” - Bill Cosby
“War will disappear only when men shall take no part whatever in violence and shall be ready to suffer every persecution that their abstention will bring them. It is the only way to abolish war.” - Anatole France
The bible tells us in Matthew 26:52 (NKJV) that one should not resolve to violence:
"But Jesus said to him, "Put your sword in its place, for all who take the sword will perish by the sword."
Violence is not the way to make matters rest. It makes matters worse!
What do you think? Do you have any idea how to stop violence?
