"Love Can End i
War"? Cashwell
"Love, operating from a hu
manitarian standpoint, not nec
essarily the Christian viewpoint,
would end all war," Rev. T. L.
Cashwell, Jr., pastor of Fiwt Bap
tist church, told members of the
Kings Mountain Lions club at
their meeting Tuesday night.
Speaking on the subject "Some
thing More Powerful than the
Hyrogen Bomb," Mr. Cashwell
pointed to the inconsistencies of
war involving Christian nations
and developed his theme with the
liberal use of Biblical quotations, i
Declaring himself "not a pad- 1
fist, far from it," Mr. Cashwell
said, '"We must separate the doer
from the deed, and we must cease
to hate. A chritian nation, like a
Christian person, cannot hate.
"We must see those we consid
er evildoers and Jesus at one time
ahd hope and pray that they can
come to know Him."
He reminded that Jesus, on the
cross, said, "Lord, forgive them,
they know not what they do,-'
and, yet another time, said, "Pray
for them wha persecute you."
The philosophy of the press, ra
dio, and many churches of today,
he charged, is "Love those around
you and fight our enemies." Re
viewing the recont history of this
nation, Mr. Cashwille pointed out
that World War I was supposedly"
fought to preserve the world for
democracy, and that World War
II was fought to finish the Job.
Yet only five years later, he said,
we're fighting again.
He doubted, h declared, that
any lengthy peace could ever
come from the policy of loving
one's neighbors and hating one's
