REV. C.R. MOORE, PASTOR The causes and effects that bring about the mutable fates of nations and peoples, and that result in the upheavals of historic populaces, may be due to the diverse aims and purposes of those peoples involved. Throughout world history humanity has suffered through eras of the intolerable cruelties and tragedies of war. Yet when one attempts objectivity in deciphering the puzzles of man's inhumanity to man, he ends up with a more confused array of pieces which cannot seem to comprise or complete the entire puzzle. Holocausts and genocides and savagery have been perpetrated either for the purposes of conquests, power politics or self-aggrandisement. The history of mankind has throughout the millenia proved the futility and the temporal triumph of those purposes and aims. Only one war has been waged for the establishment of a truth which has proved eternal, a truth without which mankind could not exist. Perhaps the incident of Hanukkah, because of its characteristic merriment and joyous celebration, has not had the essential effect upon mankind from a universalistically historical point of view. Yet when one delves more deeply into the history of the Hanukkah era, and realizes that the Maccabean war fought by Jews zealous for the right to worship the one true God, is the only war throughout man's existence that has been fought for freedom of worship, it' will be discovered that it was the first attempt at a nation's martyrdom for the sake of the one Universal God. True, one may say, many wars have been waged in the name of the Lord, and many relgious sects have fought each other for so-called religious purposes. But those wars lost the basis of their causes in the resulting politico-military conquests. The Thirty Years' War between Catholic and Protestant clerical and temporal powers is a point in view. Other conflicts which may have had an inkling of religiosity were not fought for that one single purpose of declaring the oneness of the Lord of heaven and earth as the only divine and eternal deity, as were the Wars of Hanukkah. They were strifes between denominational groups for the purpose of establishing greater popularity for their respective doctrines and creeds. The victory of the Jewish heroes over the pagans, which culminated in the cleansing of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem of all the idols and polytheistic entities with which the Syrians desecrated the holiest site of the Judeans, was a triumph of the almighty judge of the world over His antagonists. That, surely, is one war that has had an eternal and most divinely valuable and incomparable benefit for all mankind. And for that reason, the Hanukkah lights, small as they are in size, shed their light throughout the world, into the hearts of all people who are true followers of the one and only God.
