This past Memorial Day brought forth the usual military idolatry. What makes it worse, though, is that this military idolatry is so rampant among Christians and in churches.
And just how can a Christian know if he is guilty of military idolatry? Simple.
Christian, you might be guilty of military idolatry:
- If you send a care package to a U.S. soldier, but not to a missionary.
- If you thank a veteran for his service, but not a pastor, priest, deacon, or minister.
- If you can recite the Pledge of Allegiance, but not the Ten Commandments.
- If you value serving your country more than serving your fellowman.
- If you sing the National Anthem at a sporting event with more enthusiasm than you sing a hymn in church.
- If government welfare spending bothers you, but not government military spending.
- If anti-war rallies make you mad, but cadences recited in basic training don’t make you blush.
