For a book which came close to explicit pacifism, however, while staying discreetly within the just-war orthodoxy favoured by Roman Catholicism, see Vann, Gerald O.P. Morality and War Author: Martin Ceadel.

Bible quotes to support pacifism. The Old Testament is full of the message that God wants to see a world full of peace and justice.

The Old Testament prophets often see the future Kingdom of God as a kingdom of peace. Turn from evil and do good, seek peace and pursue it.

Here are two key differences between nonviolence as taught by the Buddha, and pacifism. First, the Buddha did not teach social and political phi­losophy; and second, he taught a path of life, not a blanket ideology. Guiding each interested individual to walk the path, the Buddha encouraged a pure mind that seeks the least harm.

He recognized. It was his rejection of pacifism which led to his development of a Christian realist and political realist outlook, his alternative approach to ethics and politics which he believed more fully meets one’s moral responsibilities.

God’s means of achieving the ultimate reconciliation of all things are not immediately evident to us. God cannot be subjected to our interpretation of the non-violent way of Jesus.

Our commitment to the way of the cross (reconciliation) is not premised on God’s pacifism or non-pacifism. It is precisely because God has the prerogative to give and take life that we do not have.

The Christian and Carnal Warfare: The Case for Non-Pacifism On November 8, By Joe Butler In Christianity, Church, Faith 1 Comment Now that we’ve had a chance to discuss the case for pacifism (please read yesterday’s post), we are going to move on to understanding the Christian mindset on war from a non-pacifist’s point of view.

Speaking broadly, then, there are two fundamental views of war: pacifism, which argues that war cannot be justified and instead must be rejected as a matter of principle, and non-pacifism (of which just-war theory is an example), which argues that war is justified in certain circumstances.

It is easy to understand the appeal of both points of view. Anyone interested in how this is possible will be interested in this book. Or so it seems to me, at any rate. Q: In this book you argue that the position of the pacifist is not tenable, either on secular or scriptural grounds.

Why might a Christian be drawn to pacifism, and, conversely, why might another Christian be drawn to non-pacifism.

Summary on Reading of “Niebuhr and Christian Pacifism (Yoder) Niebuhr’s theology is about questioning to whom we bring our peace witness and how to bring down the “impracticable” teaching of Jesus.

His theology is anthropology with interest in man and man’s predicament. Christian doctrine tries to adequate justice to both poles. To be a Christian you must accept certain things such as belief in God, belief in the divinity of Christ, belief in Christ’s death and resurrection, etc.

I’m claiming if Pacifism is added to those fundamental things then Christianity becomes incoherent as it then teaches contradictory things. For example, Martin Luther King Jr.

and Mahatma Gandhi more often referred to a movement for nonviolence, instead of a movement for pacifism. Christian nonviolence is necessary for Christian pacifism, but Christian pacifism is not necessary for Christian nonviolence.
