war?

i am very against any kind of violence. i belive that jesus teaches us that violence is not the way we deal with events in our lives. even on the "state" level, war is, in my reading of scripture, wrong.

about a year ago i was speaking at an event where tony campolo was also speaking. tony gave a very clear call, "if anyone can show where jesus supports violence i will change my point of view." no one was able to do so - but this was a gathering of southern baptist and even though they could not find any place where jesus spoke in favor of violence, they refused to let go and follow the teaching.

what do you think? can we live as christ tells us to, or is it just a bunch of hot air?

I think war is a very complicated issue. We very clearly see God calling the israelites to war in the old testament, so I think it is a smidge irresponsible to take an extreme opinion. As a Jew, I'm glad somebody beat the Nazi's, genocide is not fun. I can choose to live as Christ lives by not being violent, how I respond to the government's actions, I'm still searchin' for clarity in that area.
