    Great minds think alike, huh? (Apparently we were typing journal entries on this at the same time.)

    One point that I can express well is that there are two sides to the Church when it comes to war: Pacifism and Just War. It helps to hear from the Just War crowd because otherwise, Pacifism becomes more like Passive-ism. ;)

    I wholeheartedly agree. Any stance on this issue which dismisses the other side without consideration is arrogant and short sighted. There are intelligent reasons people have landed on both sides.

    Some points that will help you as you consider the issue from a religious standpoint: the Old Testament is not our law today [] (including the Ten Commandments []), and even though the government is granted authority by God [], we are to never obey its commands in deference to God's laws. []

    • Thanks, jdavidb!

      I'm also reminded of Romans 2:12-15 [], which implies that God's law is something that's part of the Imago Dei - our creation (humankind) was made in the image of God.
