When I think of the word BRAVE I immediately think of our veterans and our military. I think of those who founded this country — who risked their lives to make this a place of freedom. I remember those who signed the constitution of the United States of America. They risked their lives when signing for what they believed. They could have been killed for such treason.
The bravery of our veterans to defend this country saddens me sometimes. I especially wonder what the older vets must think about what this country has become. I posted an article on my personal FB page stating that military Christians will not be able to share their faith because it will be considered spiritual rape. This also means the Chaplains as well.
The Pentagon has released a statement confirming that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith: “Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense…Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis…”.
WHAT?!?!?! Are you kidding me? What happened to religious freedom? I guess it is for every religion EXCEPT Christianity?
Another quote from the article:
(From our earlier report: Weinstein is the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and says Christians–including chaplains–sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in the military are guilty of “treason,” and of committing an act of “spiritual rape” as serious a crime as “sexual assault.” He also asserted that Christians sharing their faith in the military are “enemies of the Constitution.”)
Enemies of the Constitution? What a deceived man … You can read this article by clicking HERE.
We Christians need to pray for Weinstein’s soul, but also for those in the Pentagon who are deceived into believing this mess. We need to be BRAVE because we honestly don’t know what we are going to face here in America.
The interesting thing to me is the government is supposed to be FOR the people and led BY the people.
1 Corinthians 16:13
Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.
