Onward Christian Soldiers:
Are We Liberators or Oppressors?

The picture in the WASHINGTON POST showed two American soldiers
kneeling in the sand of Iraq. One had laid his hand on the shoulder of
his buddy, trying to comfort him. The soldier was deeply disturbed over
the sight of Iraqi children wounded during recent hostilities.

It's one of many pictures that reveal the character of America's armed
forces. I think of men like these whenever I hear claims in the news
media that American forces in Iraq are nothing more than jackbooted
oppressors -- that Muslims see our soldiers as "Christian crusaders"
out to destroy them.

Let's think about that for a moment. The men who make up America's
military forces are largely Christian. And they did invade a largely
Muslim country. So when it comes to those so-called "Christian
crusaders," what are Iraqi Muslims witnessing?

During the war, they saw flyers doing everything possible to avoid
harming innocent civilians. And there are many stories of our soldiers
risking their lives to rescue civilians caught in the crossfire.

After the war, trucks arrived with food and water -- provisions
intended, not for American forces, but for Iraqi civilians.

Today, Iraqis are seeing the sort of behavior always witnessed when
American GIs show up. Our soldiers are the kind who share their MREs
with hungry kids. This week, an Associated Press photo showed a U.S.
Army specialist handing out notebooks at a girl's school near Baghdad.
A TV camera captured the sight of a young, African American soldier
surrounded by grinning Iraqi children as he taught them a silly
American song.

Do these sound like "crusaders?"

I love the way the late historian Stephen Ambrose put it. Throughout
history, he said, soldiers almost always meant an orgy of looting,
pillaging, rape, and even murder. This was certainly the case at the
end of World War II when, Ambrose wrote, "The most terrifying sight to
most civilians was a squad of armed teenage boys in uniform." Whether
it was the Red Army in Warsaw, the Japanese in Manila, or the Germans
in Holland, the soldiers meant trouble.

There was one exception to this tragic rule. "Everywhere in the world,"
Ambrose wrote, "whether in Belgium, the Philippines, Germany, or Japan,
the sight of a twelve-man squad of GIs brought joy to people's hearts."
Why? "Because the sight of those American kids meant cigarettes, candy,
C-rations, and freedom. They had come, not to conquer, but to

The Muslim citizens of Iran know this -- which is why, according to
Thomas Friedman in the NEW YORK TIMES, many are urging America's
so-called "Christian crusaders" to come and liberate them.

Our young men and women in uniform are some of the best of America, the
cream of our national crop -- taking freedom to people the world over.
To paraphrase the words at the base of the Statue of Liberty: Part of
America's military mission is to rescue "your poor, your tired, your
huddled masses, yearning to breathe free."

In his State of the Union Address this year, President Bush said, "The
liberty we prize is not America's gift to the world; it is God's gift
to humanity" -- right. And this Independence Day let's be grateful for
our own freedom, and let's especially pray for the safety of our
soldiers as they fight for the freedom of others.

As you read the Scriptures with your family, I hope
you'll have a new appreciation for who the "Word made
flesh" really is: He's the Creator who existed before time.
He's the Logos Who made heaven and earth, and Who
steers the stars in their courses. He is the Truth that is
ultimate reality. He is the 'Babe of Bethlehem & the
'Word' of John 1. If you know of others who would

Verse of the Day

Thought &


* * * Four important things to KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

God loves you so much that He died for you!!!
