Are all Christians Conscientious Objectors?
The other night I watched PBS: The Good War and Those Who Refused To Fight It about conscientious objectors during WWII. It reminded me of how I used to basically believe the same way, even making sure I had several registered letters to document my (unofficial) CO status when it looked like the US might go to war with Nicaragua years ago, due to what Herbert W. Armstrong taught in his Military Service and War booklet.
Later, due to wondering about the Quaker influence upon Mr. Armstrong and unresolved questions or apparent contradictions about this important Christian subject, I did a prayerful Bible study on it and wrote it up to share my different conclusions.
Onward Christian Soldiers!
Since then, I've also written these additional articles:
