Most American Christians are totally shocked when they learn that active duty troops in Afghanistan and Iraq are absolutely banned from sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with anyone. U.S. Central Command‘s “General Order Number One” absolutely forbids any active duty troops from trying to convert people to any religion.
That means that all of those Muslims that the U.S. military is “liberating” are absolutely prohibited from hearing about Jesus Christ from the people who are supposed to be helping them.
But not only that, the U.S. military has also admittedly burned Bibles.
Stacks of Bibles that were printed in the two most common Afghan languages and that had been sent to Afghanistan were burned by the U.S. military because there was fear that they would get off the base and ultimately convert some of the Afghans.
Oh, the horror!
What hope are we bringing to these people if we forbid the spreading of the gospel of Jesus Christ?
“The decision was made that it was a ‘force protection’ measure to throw them away, because, if they did get out, it could be perceived by Afghans that the U.S. government or the U.S. military was trying to convert Muslims,” Lt. Col. Mark Wright told CNN.
A CNN report about this Bible burning is posted below…..
As stunning as this report was, the truth is that it is only part of a larger campaign by the U.S. military to repress religious expression.
Just consider the U.S. army regulation below…..
“Distinctive religious symbols, such as crosses, crucifixes, the Star of David, menorah, and other religious symbols, will not be affixed or displayed permanently on the chapel exterior or grounds.”
And we wonder why the U.S. military is not blessed anymore.
In another incident last year, a U.S. marine was handing out coins to Iraqis that had a positive message about Christianity on them.
So how did the U.S. military respond when they learned of this?
The U.S. military can’t seem to stop the terror attacks over there, but they sure seem to be effective in stamping out any expression of Christianity as quickly as possible.
The U.S. military may be fighting in the name of someone’s “god”, but they are making it abundantly clear what God that they do not follow.
