Christian Embassy seeks to help diplomats, government leaders and military officers find real and lasting purpose through faith and encouragement.
The above quote is taken from the website of the Christian Embassy, in Washington D.C.
A recent report released publicly on Thursday August 2, 2007 by the Defense Department’s (DOD) inspector general has found high-ranking Army and Air Force personnel violated long-standing military regulations when they participated in a promotional video for an evangelical Christian organization while in uniform and on active duty.
After viewing the video (click here), my first thought was: These are the Crusaders of the 21st Century. In the name of Jesus, they said, we will fight terrorism: an ideology! This is equivalent to someone claiming that the fight against Christianity or Judaism is underway! Where does one begin? Rome? D.C.? Rio de Janeiro? I give up.
“With God on Our Side” and such phrases (click here) one begins to see the irony of our (United States Government) claims that we are “right” and “righteous” and anyone different than us is then an enemy! Remember Bush’s famous words: “You’re either with us or against us” or “..this “..this crusade, this war on terrorism is gonna take awhile.. ”
Watch the video and read the report(s). Judge for yourself. To me, it seems that we are on the same level of those who claim that THEY are “right and righteous!”
