Q: Is peace naive, impossible, merely the absence of war ?

Catch this, from a guy knowing he’s about to be crucified for heresy: “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”(John 14:27) // “Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.” (Matt 10:29) // And this from an earlier sufferer: “Though he slay me yet will I trust him[.]”(Job 13:15)
