Erasmus on gun control...kinda (1500's)

 "Christians attack christians with engines of destruction, fabricated by the devil. A cannon! a mortar! no human being could have devised them originally;"

Erasmus; The Conplaint of Peace

I've been working my way through Erasmus' The Complaint of Peace. It is rocking my world in a good way. It seems to stand as one of a very few essays from the reformation era that captures the full force of Christ's call to peace. Erasmus seems to be looking beyond his own culture's zeitgeist. It's so very relevant for today.
