Military Recruiting Posters in Churches

Email Print

I have written in some of my articles over the years about evangelical churches serving as recruiting centers for the U.S. military. I did not, of course, mean that literally. But now comes word from a reader that in her Southern Baptist church, in a room regularly used for 6th grade boys, are two Marine Corps recruiting posters. “One of them shows the head/face of a Marine sergeant and says, ‘Believe it or not, this is the first face you want to see after graduation.’ The other one shows a Marine doing some daring feat and says something about giving a whole new meaning to getting a workout.”

Now more than ever, our churches must be demilitarized.
