• Image of Authority of the Sovereign

To justify war, St. Augustine wrote that the sovereign ruler of the state has the authority to wage war and that those subject to the authority of the sovereign are duty bound to fight in the sovereign's war, even if it is unjust. Further, he went on to say that God has perfect justice to direct those wars to be fought. It seems that the tenets from a Doctor and Father of the Church of the days of early christianity are still in use today to justify wars abroad.
