Does that mean we should never have wars? Of course not.

It just means that there is no longer any reason to justify those wars to those opposed to them.

Because we know they will accept any injustice, any oppression, as long as war is avoided. With a moral position like that, who cares what they think about the justice of war.

The Jesus tradition is all about challenging unjust structures and finding a way to bring about a more inclusive and peaceful society. It is an authentic role for church leaders to challenge governments around issues of peace and justice.
