GUEST,Pete from seven stars link BS: Qu: Regarding Religion (335* d) RE: BS: Qu: Regarding Religion 02 Mar 16


The short version. I think the New Testament used soldiers as analogies in the epistles to illustrate lessons . The soldiers job in those times encompassed policing, civil order, and mail too to some extent I think. I think the early church excommunicated anyone who (willingly?) joined the military but I am not sure on that. I personally think a Christian should be pacifist , but I appreciate that it is not entirely clear.
