That we henceforth be no more children tossed
to and fro, and carried about with every wind
of doctrine, but speaking the truth in love,
may grow in all things. Eph 4:14 & 15

and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall
not lift up sword against nation, neither shall
they learn war anymore. Isaiah 2:4
