CHRISTIAN PACIFISM

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
