Westminster Confession of Faith

Chapter 23: Of the Civil Magistrate

2: It is lawful for Christians to accept and execute the office of a magistrate, when called thereunto:[461] in the managing whereof, as they ought especially to maintain piety, justice, and peace, according to the wholesome laws of each commonwealth;[462] so, for that end, they may lawfully, now under the New Testament, wage war, upon just and necessary occasion.[463]
