I created this spectrum chart to show the relationship between spirituality and political unbalance. The further one moves away from center the more extremist and unbalanced one becomes in their world views.
What is true Christianity and how is it related to true centrism, selflessness, peace, respect, compassion, anarchy, and pacifism?
What is true Satanism and how is it related to selfishness, extremism, control, violence, governments, war, and manipulation?
Anarcho-pacifism (also pacifist anarchism or anarchist pacifism) is a tendency within anarchism that rejects the use of violence in the struggle for social change and the abolition of the state. The main early influences were the thought of Henry David Thoreau and Leo Tolstoy while later the ideas of Mahatma Gandhi gained importance. Pacifist anarchism “appeared mostly in the Netherlands, Britain, and the United States, before and after the Second World War and has continued since then in the deep in the anarchist involvement in the protests against nuclear armament.”.
Christian anarchism is a movement in political theology that claims anarchism is inherent in Christianity and the Gospels. It is grounded in the belief that there is only one source of authority to which Christians are ultimately answerable—the authority of God as embodied in the teachings of Jesus. It therefore rejects the idea that human governments have ultimate authority over human societies. Christian anarchists denounce the state, believing it is violent, deceitful and, when glorified, idolatrous. Christian anarchists hold that the “Reign of God” is the proper expression of the relationship between God and humanity. Under the “Reign of God”, human relationships would be characterized by divided authority, servant leadership, and universal compassion—not by the hierarchical, authoritarian structures that are normally attributed to religious social order. Most Christian anarchists are pacifists—they reject war and the use of violence.
More than any other Bible source, the Sermon on the Mount is used as the basis for Christian anarchism. Leo Tolstoy‘s The Kingdom of God Is Within You is often regarded as a key text for modern Christian anarchism.
