one of the things I hadn't realized was
quite a lot of Christians
would label themselves as pacifist.
So here I was in the military.
I was flying, captain of an aircraft
that didn't have weapons on it but would have sometimes
weapons in it that I was delivering somewhere.
And if I wasn't delivering weapons
I was putting soldiers on the ground in Iraq and,
like it or not, I was indirectly part of the war machine.
Some Christians will believe that what we need to do is
withdraw and not get involved.
And to show the example of pacifism.
However when we don't get involved
And so I think, as a Christian,
we each have to come to our own position.
And you need to find a peace of being involved or not
and I do strongly believe that at times,
when all else is exhausted, that sometimes there's a place
to intervene for the sake of those without a voice
and without power.
Now somebody that doesn't have faith can have
just as strong morals.
I'm not saying that Christians have the morals
but I think it's good to have
people embedded within the military that are thinking
is what we're doing right.
Is how we're doing it right?
And if not how should we be doing it.
