Women in Combat

The Department of Defense announced on December 3, 2015, that it will open all combat positions in our nation’s armed forces to women.  The next step is military conscription.  Early in February when questioned by a senator, Gen. Mark A Miley, chief of staff of the Army, and Gen. Robert B. Neller, the Marine Corps commandant replied, “Senator, I think that all eligible and qualified men and women should register for the draft.”

Pastor David Ramirez of Union Grove, Wis. comments: “No civilization, Christian or heathen, has ever purposely sent women into combat as a regular matter of policy, nor dared to conscript them.  It defies nature and all reason to send the bearers of life to be bearers of the sword.  This revolutionary change is part of the same attempt by the proponents of gay marriage, transgenderism, and feminism to erase the distinction between men and women….The men of a nation can indeed be called upon to serve, and if necessary, die in defense of the homeland. They are willing to do so precisely because they know it is right to lay down their lives for the sake of their families.”  To conscript women for war is just one more departure from the Christian milieu where a man is called to lay down his life for his wife (Ephesians 5:25).  This nation needs God’s Word to think straight.   Come to Peace Lutheran Church for that Word. Sunday service time is 10:00 a.m.  Lenten Service Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.
