I am so happy to have a good handful of serious ties-- friends and fellow Christians to bond to, all over the world, and also many combat Veterans as friends too [of course]. The above is a super fine true story of an Australian Vietnam Vet's diary/ journal, who was in the same approx. war zone 'in-country' area [North of Bien Hoa] as I was in 1968. There was small and large battles going on all the time, everyday over there in that 'tropical paradise'.. lol, many not published or told to the "civilians" back home. Many combat Vets just won't talk about that experience and I respect them. Others find that they are still trying to put the pieces together and make sense of it. Go figure, the MASH movie where the doctors and nurses gained 10 tons of serious experience in combat in just ONE year! Same with the combat Veterans, my dear past father who fought in Saipan-- WW-2- Navy, and all his 5 brothers, my uncles, who served in the Army] too.

It stands to reason that [IMHO] combat Veterans make good Soldiers of Christ too! but now we have a different fight/ battle: "Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might, Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the Devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Ephesians 6: 10-12, by the Apostle Paul. I bought a few bronze and silver 'challenge coins' with this scripture engraved on one side --and with an armed ancient soldier on the other side. I found that it's a good 'witnessing tool.' But just think about this scripture for a moment, please. It ALMOST sounds like the man in the WH... lol ! But it really represents Satan and his agents in the invisible world-- standing behind most every throne/ chair of high Gov't figures, etc, world wide.

For sure, the heavens AND the earth must be cleaned COMPLETELY before he NEW heavens and NEW earth can be made!! And this is exactly what we Christians pray for at MATHEW 6:9, the "Lord's Prayer" -- 'Let your Kingdom come.' Think of it. When at last God's Kingdom {Gov't} comes, there will be total peace and security-- NOT from the hands of mere humans, Governments, political parties, or the United Nations-- but from the God of the Bible!
We pray that the Gov't "leaders" will let us keep our Freedoms of Speech, to worship God and obey Jesus Christ, etc. BUT IF THEY TRY TO PREVENT US FROM WORSHIPING AND SERVING/ OBEYING OUR CHOSEN LORD, JESUS CHRIST, we MUST obey God rather than men--- to the death, if necessary! Period. All biblical, studied Christians will tell you that they truly expect this to happen-- and sooner than latter.

Watching the news and reading the truth, it is strongly apparent that OUR Gov't and the rest of the world are indeed forcing US to move to a "One world gov't, and a One world religion." Impossible? Ha! Look what has happened already in the USA! And the President cannot do ANYTHING without the Congress' approval, OK.. so go figure. By the 2010 elections, it will be way too late... the damage will be too great and we will be SOL. Personally, I look for a BIG "change" in the next 6 to 12 months.
The battle lines are already drawn. Where do YOU stand?? Are we to be men or mice? Brave solid Christian Soldiers and well trained from reading/ knowing the Bible well --- or dumb, ignorant, lazy cattle waiting to be slaughtered by the Devil ? Have you heard this message more than once? When God puts His big old sledge hammer down-- you won't have any more chances. The bible states that the majority will perish-- but Christians still have to do their duty/ work for the Lord by preaching/ sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Muslims and other faiths are ready to die for their pagan beliefs, and are well protected by our OWN Gov''t --- and I chose to serve the loving but Just God of all things, and His Son, Jesus Christ, even if it means my death tonight! I am a Soldier.

Evangelical Lutherans abandon Bible teaching on homosexuality
Even though the Rev. Mark Chavez believes the leaders of his church made a decision in direct contradiction of the Bible by lifting a ban on sexually active, monogamous gays and lesbians as clergy, he said he's staying with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America.
