Making sense of how Christians differ on military intervention.
We may feel that God is on our side in supporting U.S. military action in Iraq, but that view is difficult if not impossible to substantiate from the Bible. If that s so, why did so may Christians support the war effort? On what did they base their beliefs? In this study, we ll explore five possible responses to war and some biblical texts that seem to support two opposite conclusions. How should we react to military intervention?
