Review of the book Arms of Love by Kelly Long

 **This review might offend some people. If you get offended after reading this then please do not leave a rude comment. I will simply ban you and delete your comment. Thanks**

I really enjoyed this book. I read it in 2 days because I could not put it down. This is a book about love between two people of Amish faith and how they were trying not to take part in the war and politics of the times.

One similarity between the Amish and Jehovah's witnesses is that we do not go to war. We do not vote, or get into politics. That is because we are to remain neutral in the world until God's Kingdom comes and will take over the earth and make it a better place to live.

**note, the rest of this blog I got some information from my reasoning book so that is where some of the quotes came from**

 One good scriptures to share along with this view from the bible is Acts 5:28,29 which reads " We positively ordered you not to keep teaching upon the basis of this name and yet look you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and you are determined to bring the blood of this man upon us. In answer Paul and the other apostles said: 'We must obey God as ruler rather then men.'" When there has been a direct conflict between the commands of human rulers and the requirements of God, true Christians have imitated the example of the apostles by putting obedience to God first.

Another good scripture is John 17:16 which reads " They are no part of the world, just as I( Jesus) am no part of the world.

Christians know to apply the command repeated by Jesus : "You must love your neighbor as yourself." They are convinced that the greatest good they can do for their neighbors is to share with them the good news of God's Kingdom, which will lastingly solve the problems facing mankind and which opens up to those who embrace it the marvelous prospect of eternal life.
