Questions of war and peace are sometimes seen by Christians as somewhat separate from core gospel convictions, and are pigeon holed as issues upon which we will differ 'on ethical grounds'. In conversation with Ruth Gouldbourne, Ekklesia's Simon Barrow questions this approach. Do the commitments we make in baptism have implications for our handling of conflict inside and outside the church community? What if refusing to kill was seen as a distinguishing mark of Jesus' followers in the face of religiously-sanctioned violence?
