Silver Birch denounces war for any reason. "You can not sow bloodshed and reap peace." Joan of Arc, many agree, was called by the voice of God to fight along with King Charles. Lord Krishna road with Arjuna in his war chariot. This one might be a metaphor as many Hindu and Buddhist stories are about killing off our own impurities. But can anyone explain the totally divergent views of Silver Birch and the Joan of Arc story?
