Are Anabaptists Pacifists? 

In today’s exclusive partner episode, one listener commented, “I don’t have any enemies so how do I obey Jesus? Pacifism is the only thing that Anabaptist groups get wrong.” 

Chester Weaver and Reagan Schrock discuss pacifism versus non-resistance and the Anabaptist view of those concepts as well as the fact that, if we are a Christian, we will undoubtedly have enemies.   

For further study, check out some of our other episodes and articles on the topic of non-resistance on our website.
