Adin Ballou –from ‘Catcechism of Non-Resistance’

…[non-resistance to evil] alone allows of the possibility of eradicating evil from one’s heart, and also from one’s neighbor’s. This doctrine forbids doing the whereby evil has endured for ages and multiplied in the world. He who attacks another and injures him, kindles in the other a feeling of hatred, the root of every evil…Satan can never be driven out by Satan…True non-resistance is the only real resistance to evil…It can be put into practice like every virtue enjoined by the law of God…Non-Resistance is Salvation; resistance is Ruin.

I love writing about books, theology, and the Kingdom of God. I also enjoy viewing my vocation through a biblical lens. It is here at Seeking A Kingdom that I aim to hash out my thoughts on all these things.
