Many Christians are pacifists: they belive that war can NEVER just!
AGAINST WAR BECAUSE
- Jesus taught if your hit on the right cheek offer your left
- 5th commandment " thou shalt not kill"
- Jesus taught " Love your enemies"
- Jesus stopped Peter form using violence
FOR WARS BECAUSE
- Christians are taught in Church that you are allowed to fight in a just war
- Jesus met many solidiers and he never told them it was wrong to fight, therefore it seems Jesus accepts the right for Christains to be solidiers
