    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?   In other words, if the Jews argued for non-pacifism from the OT, the Christians might be tempted to argue that the New Testament religion was better and purer precisely in being pacifistic. The Jewish-Christian hostility would feed the divisions on this matter, and tend to exaggerate differences. 3.

The evidence for Christian participation in war and violence is mixed all through the first three centuries and Yoder's method, upon encountering evidence of Christian's serving in the army or other evidence of Christian non-pacifism, is simply to interpret it as "creeping Constantinianism," that is, as Constantinianism before Constantine.

    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.

Question: "Was Jesus a pacifist?" Answer: A pacifist is someone who is opposed to violence, especially war, for any purpose. A pacifist often refuses to bear arms for reasons of conscience or religious conviction.

Jesus is the “prince of peace” (Isaiah ) in that He will one day bring true and lasting peace to the earth. SHOEBAT EXCLUSIVE By Theodore Shoebat. Jesus Christ was not a pacifist, He believed in holy war and crusading against the enemy.

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. The issue of pacifism was of particular significance in the development of Niebuhr’s political realist approach Cited by: 1.

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.
