What Would Jesus Really Do?

If Jesus taught by words and example that we should be loving rather than violent, and if Christians are, by definition, people who follow Jesus, then why is it that so many Christians support war?

This and other questions will be explored on this blog.

Here is one scripture to get us started:

One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”
“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:28–31, NIV)
