My way of putting it is that Christians are called to live nonviolently not because we believe nonviolence is a strategy to rid the world of war, but in a world of war as faithful followers of Christ, we cannot imagine being anything other than nonviolent.
We have to have the faithful in government.
But this will not do, God will certainly punish you for stealing and for being unfaithful.
All the time spent idly, is spent wickedly, and is unfaithfulness to our masters.
It is our duty to be faithful, not with eye service as men pleasers.
