Indeed, leaders in the early church adopted Jesus’ attitude of nonviolence. Tertullian (born about AD ), one of the giants of the early church, stated very clearly that confessing “Jesus as Lord” means taking the teachings of Jesus seriously.

Just as Caesar commanded men to kill their enemies, Jesus commanded them to love their enemies. The Book of Acts records or reports that there was a special event that took place at Pentecost, which would have been the next pilgrimage festival after the Passover at which Jesus died.

The early church took seriously Jesus’s statement that people can’t live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the Lord’s mouth (Matthew ).

And when Jesus told His disciples to teach others “all that I command you,” they did it (Matthew ). Jesus - Jesus - The Jewish religion in the 1st century: Judaism, as the Jewish religion came to be known in the 1st century ad, was based on ancient Israelite religion, shorn of many of its Canaanite characteristics but with the addition of important features from Babylonia and Persia.

Shean’s Soldiering for God: Christianity and the Roman Army (Brill, ) and Despina Iosif’s Early Christian Attitudes to War, Violence and Military Service (Gorgias Press, ), Ronald Sider concedes “the ongoing persistent disagreement” about the early church’s view of war, soldering, and killing.

War is specifically discussed in many of those writings, and the attitude of the Church towards war is very.

Jesus and War by Will Pike Is it wrong for a Christian to support his country by participating in war. While there are a wide variety of opinions on this topic, if we look back to the teachings of Jesus and the practices of the early church, the answer to this question is very clear.

The history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) is typically divided into three broad time periods. the early history during the lifetime of Joseph Smith which is in common with most Latter Day Saint movement churches,; a "pioneer era" under the leadership of Brigham Young and his 19th-century successors, and; a modern era beginning around the turn of the 20th.
