The Friends Peace Testimony has had a wide influence in its Christ-centered expression. Three examples D.L. Moody, C.H. Spurgeon, and a denomintation: “From the very beginning, the movement has been characterized by Quaker principles. The laws of the Kingdom, laid down by our elder brother, Jesus Christ, in His Sermon on the Mount, have been unqualifiedly adopted, consequently the movement has found itself opposed to the spilling of the blood of any man…”
THEREFORE we, as a body of Christians, while purposing to fulfill all the obligations of loyal citizenship, are nevertheless constrained to declare we cannot conscientiously participate in war and armed resistance which involves the actual destruction of human life, since this is contrary to our view of the clear teachings of the inspired Word
of God, which is the sole basis of our faith–Assemblies of God, 1917
