Sanctuary Studies: War in the name of religion

  • St. Stephen Lutheran Church 1636 East Mission Road Fallbrook, CA, 92028 United States (map)

Reading about the Israelite conquest of Canaan brings two common reactions today. On the one hand it leads some to conclude that the God of the Old Testament is an entirely different God. On the other hand it leads some to think that holy war may be a suitable policy for Christians today (particularly against Muslims). The true approach is something different altogether. In this hour-long presentation and discussion Pastor Bassett will cut through the confusion and teach how Christians can understand the role of war and faith. We'll touch on Old Testament texts, discuss modern Islamic jihad, and briefly address the concept of “just war.”
