We move from the wisdom of the world that war benefits an economy to ask us Christians how we should view war. The Bible gives us some guidance. We ask these four questions:
- What are human beings? (Gen 9:6)
- What causes wars? (Jas 4:1-5)
- When is war justified? (Psa 7:3-5)
- What is the mindset of war? ("us" vs. "them")
I recognize that I presented this episode a little passionately and that it might ruffle some feathers, especially given the political landscape. Christians, of all people, as those who believe in the morality of the Bible, should take topics like this seriously.
