One of the issues I have with the WT teachings is that it is taught that a true believer must not engage in warfare.
The problem is: Evil does exist and someone must be willing to stop evil. If not good people then who will?
Many years ago, I asked a sister this question: "If no one had stopped Hitler (the best example of evil at the time) what would have happened?" Her answer is the standard answer most JW's give: "If everyone were JW's, Hitler would not have been able to get anyone to fight for him."
The problem is, everyone does not have this attitude. Someone must be willing to stand up to evil.
Edmund Burke said, "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."
Should a Christian not be willing to defend what is good?
I have no problem with a Christian, or a member of any other faith, declaring themselves objectors to a war that is not just(as many believe about the US war in Vietnam). But if you believe in the cause, is it wrong to pick up arms to defeat evil?
