  • Christians should join

    Christians are to be a light in darkness. War is a very dark place, filled with death, sadness, and hate. Christians sometimes go into service, not realizing the light that they can be. They can start Bible studies with their fellow soldiers and bring the light and life that Jesus gives into a gloomy place. They can also be living examples of Jesus. Without Christians being involved in military matters, there may be less hope.

  • Yes, Christians should join the military

    Christians should join the military if they have to because in the Bible, God's followers also fought against different enemies. It is very important for Christians to be able to fight in God's will to protect themselves. Just like Medieval times, if another religious group attack the Christian lands, they should defend themselves.

  • Yes, Christians Should Join the Military

    Christians should join the military if they chose to do so. There are some people who feel that fighting for their country or simply serving their country in a military fashion is a duty and an honor. It should not matter whether these people are Christian or not. In reality, there have been more wars fought and lives lost int he pursuit of Christianity than just about any other cause; it would be somewhat hypocritical for Christianity to deny its followers to join the military.

  • Yes, Christians Can Join the Military

    Christians are like everyone else. They love their families. They love their country. They have values and a way of life that they don't want taken away. When another country or terrorist group threatens any one of those things a Christian has the same responsibilities as anyone else to protect, save and preserve to the best of their ability.

  • Yes

    I think that anyone that wants to join the military should. It is a great honor to serve you country and this honor should not be taken away from some one because they are a christian. God is a forgiving man and what ever goes on in the military can be forgiven.

  • Christians should be able to serve in the military

    Christians should not glorify death, but that does not mean that it is a part of this world. Christians should defend their freedoms and their families back home. Evil is all around us and it needs to be stopped. Though it should be talked about, evil people do not always negotiate. If we as Christians, sat back and did nothing about the terrorists and evil people of the world, then they would come to us and threaten our families and our freedom. While prayer will help, the evil people of the world still need to be stopped.

  • Yes because Christians can have a positive influence

    Romans 13:4 says the following
    For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
    This clearly shows that God can use Soldiers and Police as his ministers to combat evil. Some argue that these are Gods unbelieving ministers but nowhere does it say that Christians cannot fill these roles. What’s ironic is most pacifists have no issue relying on the military or police when needed. I guess in their eyes it’s okay for non-believers to die to protect them. I guess it’s better to fill our ranks with thugs and criminals to fill the roles as Gods avengers. To think like this is complete lunacy beyond my level of comprehension. I have heard these so called Christians who I call hypocrites compare our soldiers and police to Hitler and Stalin. Maybe that’s why some of them march in the streets promoting the killing of our cops. I hate to currently live in the United States where there was no military or police. One individual on this debate mentioned accepting and embracing a heterosexual life style. Well I got news for him I know several service members that do not embrace or accept the homosexual life style to include chaplains. If they are ever forced to accept that that is where they must take a stand and refuse. Nowhere in there oath does it state that they have to accept such a life style. Complete lunacy.

  • I have wrestled with the Idea of Christians but I would definitely have to say yes.

    Romans 13:4 says the following
    For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.

  • Yes we should join

    Yes, God says that we shall not kill but kill as in murder he more specifically says that we shall not murder. With this he also says that whom defends its country is noble and is honorable but must be spiritually right and must have a reason to defends its country. Right now we are fighting in Iraq against ISIS. They are terrible people that MURDER innocent civilians. We want to protect those civilians as much as we can and our own civilians. There is nothing saying that it is wrong to join the military in the bible, mostly all of it is good stuff. People keep on bringing up killing, yes you may kill if you join the military but different MOS (military occupational specialty; or your job) do not require you to kill somebody. Overall I think the experience of the military will be a good way to stay close to god and test your spiritual mind and heart.

  • Love your enemy.

    Jesus taught us to love your enemy. How then can you show love by spraying bullets across the battle field yelling "Ooh Rah!". We as Christians are also taught to keep violence, anger, lust, jelousy, slander, dirty language, and any form of un godliness far from us. How is that possible in service while getting yelled at. Cuss like a sailor came from the Marines and Navy. Every person I have met in the military enjoys killing, they lose sleep over the people they missed to kill. So yeah, haha your a " christian in service" that's a joke. If you truly want to "fight" in the middle East then join up with missionary groups to witness to Muslims. And when your faced with the sword lay down your life. Think about that instead.

  • Jesus true teachings never glorify violence, especially the way the pro-military Phony patriots do today

    Sure, self defense is fine. But our military has not defended us since WWII. All other wars we got into was sticking our nose in others business, and killing people who did not fit into our ideologies. I absolutely hate when Fundamentalist churches claim to be so Christ centered, then go on about how we should then worship the nation, and kill for it. BS.

  • It violates the teachings of Jesus

    Christians should not be involved in wars and affairs stirred up for political reasons. Jesus teaches us "Give to Caesar what is Caesars and to God what is Gods. War puts us directly against what Jesus taught us when he says, "Love your enemy," and "bless those that persecute you."

  • Tolerating homosexuality, engaging in war, and having to give your allegiance to someone or something other than God.....

    Wouldn't be able to be true to God while giving my allegiance to the flag, the country....Etc. Wouldn't be able to except or embrace the homosexual lifestyle the bible condemns and the military condones. Wouldn't be able to engage in war when the bible says to love my enemy. There are two kingdoms...God's Kingdom and the world. We must be a separated people.

  • It goes against so much in scripture.

    Because 1.The military's domination agenda. 2.Military antagonistic toward christianity.3.Not protecting our borders,but other people's borders. 4.Does not facilitate spiritual growth - lack of worship personally and corporately( or weak),the first commandment. 5.Sinful vices: "course jesting"'Eph.5:4;4:29; drunkeness; pornography; rape; sodomy.6.If married puts a strain on families and separates them for long periods of time. We are to be building up God's Kingdom not man's. And more...

  • We are in the world, not of the world

    As Christian soldier's for God's kingdom, are we to kill carnal man or save them? If we do as they do, we are the same as they are. When we have a willing heart to kill, for any reason, then there will always be a reason in man's opinion to kill. Until the last man standing refuses to kill it will continue. When Cain killed his brother Abel, you will notice that not Adam, nor Eve returned evil for evil. Not even God killed Cain, for God uses those willing to do evil to fulfill His purposes and there were none, for Cain it says, was the first murderer. In fact God said that any who kill Cain shall suffer 7 fold. David was a man of war to defend Israel. For Christ had not come yet to teach us a better way. David was not allowed to build a temple for God because he was a man of war(1Chron.28:1-3)... Do you not know that those in Christ are the TEMPLE of God? So what does that say about one in Christ being a carnal warrior? We do not fight flesh and blood, but the unclean spirit of spiritual wickedness that invades man such as in our own UNSAVED- child, mother, father, wife, husband, carnal brother or sister, neighbor who are anti-Word/Christ meaning they reject The Word. Those are our enemies that we must love in the Truth to the saving of their soul.
    What about the fact that when we war against other nations, we are killing our own brethren in Christ? Our country is the far country of our father Abraham, not the nation that God has planted us in to do His will. Those same nations are also praying to the same God to give them victory.. But guess what? There are NO winners in war and God hates all killing of His fallen man. Check out Zech 14 where God is going to bring all the nations armies to come against carnal Israel to see who is willing to harm her. If a Christian has pledged their allegiance to their carnal countries military, they will be fighting against GOD! Don't make the same mistake that they did at Jesus's first coming when they looked for a warrior, yet he came as a gentle Lamb to die in our place so that we could be restored by the Holy Spirit of Life washing us with the Word of life to renew our minds as instruments of Peace. When our Grace period is up, Christ will come as a warrior not longer a Lamb, but he never touches anyone, they will turn on one another. You can not beat one to be peaceful, nor can you buy or force one to love God or His Word/His Christ. So true peace only comes by one repenting their sins and accepting the Truth of God to live by.. Thy Word of God is Truth.. In the beginning was THE WORD.....

  • A sovereign God.

    War is for devil's entertainment. The outcome of wars are determined by God not any human authority. Those who willingly join a force tasked with killing are profiteering from death and deliberately placing themselves at odds with the command thou shall not kill. What has light to do with darkness? What has a Christian to do with war?

  • -Being Christian imitates Jesus Christ

    Those who live by the sword die by the sword. Jesus taught to love your enemies and pray for them. This does not include putting a bullet through them. We are to be as He showed us to be, loving, peaceful, and kind to one another, especially to fellows. Say America went to war with Russia. There are Christians in Russia. There are Christians in America. What if that one soldier you shot and killed was a Christian? How does it look to God when He sees Christians killing fellow Christians?

    Understand:

    1. This world is fallen and sinful
    2. The world will be perfect when Jesus returns
    3. To have the ideals of your country trump your Christian faith and ideals that Jesus taught is to be worldly and reject Jesus Christ

    Many will say to Him 'Lord, Lord', but He will cast them out of His mouth on that Final Day

  • Its straight forward

    The 10 commanments say thou shall not murder. In the bible only time there was war and murder was yo defend the homeland. Political reasons for war is not a justifiable one for murder unless your defending Israel. I dont know how real christians can join the military other than non active roles such as mechanics and medics.
