    Spot on Wade As a Biblical scholar, I can verify the above. Those in favour of war can not, acording to the essential teachings, call themselves followers of Christ. In fact, until politics and Christianity became intertwined at a State level (300-400AD), it was antithetical to Christian ideology to be actively involved with violence or war. Cheers Jeremy
