section 3 discusses when the empire becomes "christian". at first, the church was persicuted by the empire, and christians were even referred to as atheist for not recognising caesar as a deity. later, constantine started killing people in the name of christ and it eventually becomes illegal to not be a christian. once this happens we have things like the crusades and other instances of violence being used in the name of christ. however jesus no were said to use violence. when peter rose to defend him in, jesus told him to put down his sword.
