Christians Should Not Participate in War

A scathing and biblical critique of American aggression in the early 21st century. As Christians it is time to lay down our weapons and obey Jesus’ call to love our enemies rather than imbibe the narcotic of nationalism and its deadly side effect: violence.

  1. What a great find! He deftly and strongly points out so many things that are ignored on this issue of war. Rather than leave it in the ‘theoretical’ he brings up specific details that usually are not brought up. Forcing us to realize how big this issue is.
