Subdue and Dominion Counterfeits: The Principle Causes of War

Jeffrey Maurice Smith.

When one contemplates the inception, the incessant nature, and ultimate outcome of war, its tragic continuation appears dauntingly foreboding. No person or entity has demonstrated an ability to prevent war, or the causes that produce open armed conflicts among humans. This presentation will re-introduce the Biblical concepts of subdue and dominion as a noble edit of God, but transformed into inhumane acts of personal "will" against other human beings. Attendees will be asked to come prepared to weigh into a discussion focusing on the notion of "one-ruler peace" or "multi-powers war".
