I would like first to quote Baruch de Spinoza who said something which may help to shed some light in resolving the problems of this question:Peace is not a status of non-war, but rather a virtue, a faculty, a disposition for welfare, trust and justice.207He has actually analyzed that peace is not a simple and independent phenomenon or an easy task.

On the contrary they relate the signs and characteristics of the person who would ...

Moreover, God’s love is understood as prevailing on His justice and His attributes are subordinate to Love. Hence this Law must also be an expression of God’s love.And, indeed, ...
