Is pacifism moral?
I was having dinner at the neighbors house last night. Nice people. Anyway he was talking to me about his beliefs. He’s German Baptist, similar to Mennonites. He said that, following Christ’s example, if I came into his home to kill him, he had no right to use force to resist.
I thought a lot about that last night. Certainly it’s noble to be willing to die for your beliefs. But doesn’t this present a dilemma? Because if your principles dictate pacifism, doesn’t this mean you’re willing to let others die as well?
