Religious wars are the strangest wars of all. You can halfway understand nations going to war over boundaries, oil, or economics. At least when you are fighting over money, there is something on the table you can see.

But when you fight over religion, where is the gain? When you go to war over personal or ethnic hatred, what are the spoils of war? What can you take home and say, Look, see what I have won?

In the end, religious wars are over power, but that struggle for power actually denies God. For isn’t God all power? And who are we to think that God needs us to defend His turf? When we go to war over religion, it is not God’s turf we are defending. It is our own.
