Huebner argues that Christian pacifism is not merely a conclusion of an ethical theory; it is also a style of thinking or mode of discourse. Therefore, Huebner cautions against compromising the message of Christian pacifism through use of a medium of discourse implicated in the perspective of violence. For example, in view of issues surrounding globalization, he warns against the spread of Christian pacifism not so much by witness as by argument in an attempt to secure power and control. Much of Huebnerâ€™s expansion of his admonition builds on Yoderâ€™s pacifist epistemology.
