Theological Responses to the War against Ukraine
A Reply to Joshua Searle
This article seeks to place the war against Ukraine in its wider global, political, and theological contexts. The paper demonstrates how Russia’s war against Ukraine is a theological problem, considers Joshua Searle's questions about ethics in this light, and places these questions in the wider pacifist versus just war debate. It argues that the notion of a just war, in this or any context, lacks both utility in political terms and faithfulness in theological terms.
