On the Experience of Christian Soldiers

One of Luther’s best known writings is, “Can Soldiers, Too, Be Saved?”  This article, Ponder Christian Soldiers, commences a new online series that explores the world and faith concerns of Christians who serve in the military: “Pacifists, one the one hand, deny or downplay the impact that military service had on King David, Francis of Assisi, Joan of Arc, and John Perkins. Patriots, on the other hand, often overlook the concrete lessons about the church’s relationship with state power offered by military martyrs like Saint George, Franz Jagerstatter, the Hofer Brothers, and Tom Fox.”
