Just Warriors ~ Just Wars

Just Warriors ~ Just Wars is my new weblog, dedicated to a biblical consideration of war and the waging of war. Anticipated topics:
  • foreign policy
  • principles of national defense
  • raisng, training and equipping an army
  • conscription
  • individual ethics in war
  • Just War doctrine
  • international law

... etc. & so forth.

As a Christian, it is my view that God is the final measure of justice, and that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are given to man by inspiration of God to teach us, among other things, how to do justice and live justly — whether in peace or in war.

I invite you join in the discussion.


Phrank, you are free to reproduce and post anything here that is on topic there…

…I've just reread "The Myth of a Christian Nation" by Pastor Greg Boyd for like the 3rd time, and I intend to explore the topics in the book in multiple posts here…

* the "Kingdom of the Cross" v. "The Kingdom of the Sword"'

* the myth of redemptive violence

* being pro-life, kingdom style

And the last chapter is most provocaitve…

* What about Christians and self-defense?

* Christians in the military?

* Just wars?

* Pacifism and passivity

* Oppressed overthrowing their oppressors

This book is such a gem, I heartily recommend it to any American Christian to read…, even if you are diametrically opposed to the author's sentiments
