Where does our foriegn policy come from?

We talk a lot around Page 132 about the U.S.'s foriegn policy whether that is ExPat and Hefe pushing to attack others before they might attack us or others around here stressing the importance of striving for peace first and foremost.

While this will sound cliche (and maybe it is), are we asking the question "What Would Jesus Do?"

We walk a real thin line when we try to mix Christianity with government policy, especially when it becomes violent. There is certainly good in wanting to spead the Word of God to all corners of the earth, but there is also the danger of turning things into the modern day version of the Crusades.

Would Jesus have invaded and occupied Iraq? Shouldn't that be the FIRST question we asked?
