  1. 1. WAR PEACE and By Rachel Wilson
  2. 2. Types of war: Holy/ Religious wars- fights between religious groups; arguing there religion is better or tells them to fight. Just War- a war that is justified, and is the last resort after other action has been taken. No War- Pacifists who say all war and violence is wrong.
  3. 3. Rules of a just war Conditions:- 1) War must be started by the authority of the state of ruler. 2) Just cause: there must be a reason why those being attacked are so. 3) The war promotes good or evil. Peace and justice is restored afterwards.
  4. 4. Christian rules added later: Once all solutions are tried, war must be the last resort. The war must be ‘proportional’ for the side being fought. There must be a greater gain than the evil that led to war.
  5. 5. Pacifism A pacifist believes all war and fighting is wrong. Sometimes during remembrance day, they may wear a white poppy instead of a red one. Quakers are the most associated with pacifism. They are a Christian church that is completely pacifist.
  6. 6. Why we need punishment Society will punish those who Exodus 21:23-24 “But if there is serious commit crimes to: injury, you are to take life for life, eye for Protection- To protect eye, tooth for tooth, hand for society. hand, foot for foot.” Deterrence- may stop the criminal from committing crimes again. Retribution- Victim’s revenge/ getting your won back. Reform- a chance for the criminals to try again and change for the better.
  7. 7. Capital Punishment Capital Punishment is the death sentence; punishing a serious crime, with no chance of repent or reform. Christians believe that only God has the right to take a life. There are many arguments for an against capital punishment
