Christians and War

I have three questions. 1) Are you a Christian? 2) Do you support the war in Iraq (or war in general)? 3) If 1 and 2 are both yes, how do you reconcile your beliefs about war with just about every word out of the mouth of Jesus?

1. I am a Catholic 2. No, I don't support any war. why is your question raised for Christians only? there are a lot of Non-Christians supporting the war the war even if it's against their religion. i think most modern religions condemn violence. but people are people. they make their own decisions. it's not the religion...it's the individual.

I agree. I am Christian. I do not support the war. It upsets me when people use something as important as Christianity to support something so un-Christian.

It's America's War on Terrorism. It has nothing to do with religion. And it should not be.

I am pointing out something that I see as an inconsistency. The president's "base" is composed mainly of conservative Christians. Those are primarily the people who support what he is doing. I do not know how people who actually know Christ and attempt to follow him can also know and follow George Bush and many of the things that have occurred in the "war on terror." I am allowed to point out this inconsistency. :)

they're probably too busy supporting the war and don't have time for the internet
