This may not be of interest to you but I know there is an interest or I would not have had so many discussions over the years about whether a christian can practice self defense or not.
I have procrastinated over many years writing this paper. Because I have enough problems keeping up with my normal workload and I lack the ability to spend time over a debate of this kind. As I say under the heading "A Word Before I Proceed", in the end I only wrote it because it was easier to hand someone a paper copy rather than having to go over it each time someone asked.
Let me make it quite clear, I have no problem in reconciling my practice of Judo and my Christianity. But it turns out that many do and whilst I have no desire to convincing anybody of the correctness of my view, I do think that it is important to be able to answer honest questions. That's why I wrote the paper.
I have not attempt to be comprehensive. Hence the word "Towards"... in the title. But others have told me that they found it helpful, so I thought that I would publish it.
So here it is. I hope that you find it helpful!
