kevin deyoung on memorial day

Posted on May 25, 2009


Great thoughts from Kevin DeYoung on why memorial day is still worth remembering for the church. Here is a summary of his main points:

  1. Being a soldier is not a sub-Christian activity
  2. The life of a soldier can demonstrate the highest Christian virtues
  3. Military service is one of the most common metaphors in the New Testament to describe the Christian life
  4. Love of country can be a good thing
  5. This may be controversial to some, but I believe the facts of history will demonstrate that on the whole, the United States military has been a force for good in the world.
