CBNNews.com - The U.S. military says some Bibles in Afghanistan have been confiscated and destroyed, Reuters reported.
Their decision to destroy them came after Al Jazeera television showed U.S. soldiers at a Bible class with a stack of Bibles translated into the local languages.
It's illegal to proselytize in Afghanistan and military officials forbid troops to convert Afghans to Christianity.
The military says the Bibles were brought to the Bible class by an Evangelical Christian solider who received them from his home church.
BUT: will they burn the Quoran?
It seems our leaders serve satan.... our new administration in particular.
FWIW, no soldier can convert a muslim. No Christian is capable of converting a Muslim to Christianity. That is the sole province of the Holy Spirit.
Let's see if the Military brass is willing to arrest God. They can destroy the pages, but they can't destroy the Word.
One nation under God?
....And no riots?Oh...my mistake!That only happens with the “religion of peace”.
Amen, P-Marlowe. God can reach them, and has, without Bibles. Shame on those who burned God’s Word.
He broke the rules. Granted the bibles should have been confiscated and sent back, not destroyed.
So did Jesus. So did Paul. So did Peter. So did John.
Granted the bibles should have been confiscated and sent back, not destroyed.
We should not be sacrificing our soldiers to protect a government that prohibits Christians from being Christians.
I’m wondering how the Church shipped the Bibles? If you declare multiple religious books or tracts it is supposed to be stopped by the post office.
>We should not be sacrificing our soldiers to protect a government that prohibits Christians from being Christians.
The NEW* Great Commission:
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; except where forbidden by local governments, or possibly perceived as offensive.”
* To comply with new federally mandated guidelines.

Because the First Amendment is all about preventing religious practice.
They probably declared them as copies of the Koran. I'm sure the powers that be would not have attempted to stop that. God forbid we offend a muslim.
I thought we frickin’ won!
A pic of a Koran being “shot” at in the internet, and the FBI were swarming all over Chattanooga a few years ago...
There was a man named “Andrew” who used to smuggle Bibles into Russia...
several times God blinded the eyes of the border guards when they searched his VW etc...
Although 100s of Bibles would be all over the car, they didnt see a one...
and he would get into the country with his whole load of the Gospel of Peace...
I'd also like to know the punishment that a soldier would be given if he gave the same treatment to a copy of the Koran.
I suspect that any soldier who dared to desecrate a Koran would serve time in Leavenworth, but a soldier who desecrates a bible would be promoted.
