What is the appropriate Christian attitude toward war? According to Ron Wells, there are three possible answers to this question: that of the pacifist, who condemns war itself as un-Christian; that of the crusader, who views any war fought by a Christian as a war fought in defense of Christianity; and that of the just-war theorist, who evaluates each war on the merits of its case.
