Si Vis Pacem Para Bellum

If you want peace, prepare for war


I hope that you find Si Vis Pacem personally useful and a source of information that you can provide to others who might benefit from learning or reviewing information about the defense of life. Perhaps we won't agree on all points. Unlike me, you might not be a Christian, or if you are, you might not have the same appreciation for a confessionally Reformed understanding of Scripture. You might not be an American, or as an American, you might have some concerns about some of our founding fathers or the formation of some of our founding documents. Even Patrick Henry once expressed distrust regarding the Constitutional Convention by stating, “I smell a rat!” Regardless of where we might disagree, I hope that you will find some areas of Si Vis Pacem helpful, and other areas at least interesting to consider. For example, while you might not subscribe to a Reformed Christian perspective, it can be instructive to see the Biblical and historical understanding that was common to many in the past. 

Si Vis Pacem is not an organization or company, there are no products or services for sale, and it does not provide a source of income. This website is maintained by one individual in order to provide helpful information to those interested in the defense of life, what duty God requires of man toward his fellow man, and the second amendment protections against government infringement on these duties. I am not an expert in these matters, but after having to look up information again and again, I determined to provide a central place where helpful information could be found. This is a work in progress. There is much more that could be included on the issue of self-defense in western civilization but it is my hope that the triune God would bless this effort and that this might be of some small help others.

If you have things that could be included, or ideas for improvements, please don't hesitate to let me know.
