    WWJD is an admirable approach to war; unfortunately, Jesus did not give us an
    example of what to do or not to do. Jesus left the wars and politics to the
    politicians and governments while He ministed to individuals.

    In the Old Testament, God ministered to individuals and nations. He
    ministered to nations by protecting or declaring war on groups of people. I
    understand fully that Jesus Christ and God are the same person; however, a
    distinction must be made when discussing WWJD. We tend to see Jesus as
    pacifist because He brought truth along with grace that leads us to repentance
    and an intimate relationship with Him. He is not a pacifist. When God's
    timing is complete, Jesus Christ will return with an army and "innocent"
    people will die.
