“If the Christian Religion forbade war altogether, those who sought salutary advice in the Gospel would rather have been counseled to cast aside their arms, and to give up soldiering altogether. On the contrary, they were told: ‘Do violence to no man and be content with your pay.’ If He commanded them to be content with their pay, He did not forbid soldiering.” - St. Augustine.
