  1. Wow. Can we ever have a discussion on this in which we actually look at what the text of Scripture says. The gross distortion (not only by your guest, but by a never-ending number of Christians) e.g., about the two swords shows an abysmal lack of study. https://textsincontext.wordpress.com/2012/06/17/two-swords-enough/

    Have you read Charles Spurgeon on this topic? https://spurgeonwarquotes.wordpress.com/
    The modern term “pacifism” which is so confused by many, obscures the rejection of bloodshed by the early Christians And one thing both just war Christians since Augustine, and ‘pacifists’ agreed on was “No” to personal self-defense.
