Campus and Young Professional Study on ‘Just War’

Irish+war+people+and+peasants-1600x1200-7128

On Jan. 25 and Feb. 8, we will explore the Christian doctrine of a “just war”: the idea that war, while always terrible, is not always the worst option.  Christian thinkers from the time of Augustine have wrestled with this challenging question.  In the study, we’ll cover the basic concepts of just war theory, look at its intersection with the Lutheran doctrine of the Two Kingdoms, and look at practical application of the theory in recent history.

Bonus points for study attendees who read in advance Luther’s commentary on Whether Soldiers, Too, Can Be Saved! (http://www.rockrohr.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Luther-WHETHER-SOLDIERS-TOO-CAN-BE-SAVED.pdf)
The Study is led by Brian Harms. If you have any questions, please contact the church office admin@flc-boston.org.
