The churches oppose war. We believe that war is not the path to peace. ‘Just war theory’ is to say that war should only ever be used in the face of actual aggression, and to the minimal extent necessary to stop that aggression. From a Christian perspective, war is never the way to peace. That is why the churches supported the setting up of the United Nations.
