“…[E]veryone who enlist in the United States Military, rather active duty or reserve, [has] to take an oath. And when they take that oath, they say ‘I do solemnly swear or affirm that I will support and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States of America and the orders of the officers appointed over me according to regulations and the uniform code of Military justice.’
“…The point is here: that the military discipline and the military effectiveness is built on the foundation of obedience to orders. And recruits are taught to obey. Even today, we have to teach our children. the Bible says ‘train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he shall not depart from it.’ …And just as recruits are taught to obey when it comes to military orders, we too are taught to obey… [T]hese recruits immediately, and without any question whatsoever, [take] orders from their superiors are obeyed right from day one – starting with boot camp. There are all kinds of army regulations that include: general orders, special orders, circulars, and orders that emanate from various branches of the army. But there is only one for us and it is called the B-I-B-L-E: the Bible, the Word of God.
“So my question to you today: Are you a soldier in God’s army? Are you a on the battlefield for the Lord? Did you promise Him that you would serve Him and that you would trust Him until you die? ”
