I FELT DRIVEN TO SPEAK ON THIS SUBJECT WHEN LAST FRIDAY I HEARD HUBERT HUMPHREY MAKE A SPEECH. And he said, ‘I am the only man that the people can choose for President for I am the only man of Peace.’ And he said if you elect me I will give you Peace and Safety. And the moment that he said that, then there came to my mind what the Apostle Paul said, in the writings of book of Thessalonians. When you say Peace and Safety, then comes sudden destruction.” And Mr. Humphrey said that there is only one way to have Peace and that is not to fight. He said that the people are looking for leadership with the Vietnam conflict. And the only way to have peace is to stop bombing them.
We just need to bring our men home and there will not be any fighting, and the people will call me the man of Peace. I would go over every month to the Soviet Union to work out a program of Peace, for the fighting must stop to have Peace. And whether it take appeasement or any process the human mind can work out still it is worth it to have Peace.
Now this man wants Peace at any price. But I am going to tell you, my friends, that as a child of God, we want Peace thru victory. This is the truth from the Word of God. For this Word talks about Peace thru victory. It never talks about Peace at any price. Never talks about Peace by acquiescence. It never talks about Peace by giving in to the powers of darkness, or the forces of evil.
