When Jesus Disarmed Peter

Tertullian had some very direct things to say about Jesus, warfare, and weapons. A sizeable portion of American Christians think that Tertullian got Jesus wrong. And, conversely, if Tertullian understood Jesus correctly, then a sizeable portion of Christians in American (though by no means all) actually (whether they admit it or not) think Jesus was wrong to deprive Peter of his second amendment rights.

For more discussion if this topic, a synchroblog on #thenewpacifism has been proposed.
