ANSWER: The end aimed, at, the moral well-being of the people, and indirectly the spiritual salvation of myriads of young men, would rank it as a spiritual conflict. But the weapons, sheriffs, courts, fines and prisons, have a carnal aspect. There is in this a mixture of the carnal and the spiritual. Since the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the wicked, it is not only the right but the duty of all good men to assist in its execution. It is the duty of Christian men to use spiritual weapons against social wrongs so far as they are applicable; but if these are ineffectual, then they should resort to weapons of a carnal, or secular, nature. A very good maxim is moral suasion for the tippler and legal suasion for the vendor.
