Pick one.

The roots of christianity are violence and social control. What you are searching for is something inherent to any human being, not a religion.

How is Christian Pacifism different from Atheistic Pacifism?

If you base your pacifism on Christianity, does that mean anything would change if you somehow came to the conclusion that Christianity is not true? Would you act differently?

Is it even a proper sentence to ask whether a religion is true?

Yes this is a nice hidden gem for Christian pacifism.


Our Lord warned his disciples to prepare for persecution. They were to avoid all things which gave advantage to their enemies, all meddling with worldly or political concerns, all appearance of evil or selfishness, and all underhand measures. Christ foretold troubles, not only that the troubles might not be a surprise, but that they might confirm their faith. He tells them what they should suffer, and from whom. Thus Christ has dealt fairly and faithfully with us, in telling us the worst we can meet with in his service; and he would have us deal so with ourselves, in sitting down and counting the cost. Persecutors are worse than beasts, in that they prey upon those of their own kind. The strongest bonds of love and duty, have often been broken through from enmity against Christ. Sufferings from friends and relations are very grievous; nothing cuts more. It appears plainly, that all who will live godly in Christ Jesus must suffer persecution; and we must expect to enter into the kingdom of God through many tribulations. With these predictions of trouble, are counsels and comforts for a time of trial. The disciples of Christ are hated and persecuted as serpents, and their ruin is sought, and they need the serpent's wisdom. Be ye harmless as doves. Not only, do nobody any hurt, but bear nobody any ill-will. Prudent care there must be, but not an anxious, perplexing thought; let this care be cast upon God. The disciples of Christ must think more how to do well, than how to speak well. In case of great peril, the disciples of Christ may go out of the way of danger, though they must not go out of the way of duty.

Christian Civilization is under attack by Marxism, degeneracy and hordes of Mahometan Heretics. Never in 2000 years has it been so endangered. It is no time for pacifism... It is time for all God-Fearing men to take up arms in defence of the faith.

This quote is always taken out of its context. If you really think Jesus meant this literally it just shows you haven't actually read the New Testament.

Don't confuse the socio-political utilitarianism with which religion has been applied with the teachings of the gospels.

38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.
41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

—Matthew 5:38–5:42
