Is it right for a christian to be in the army?
Accepted AnswerabebstelsOffline0I do not think being in the army is wrong. Every profession needs the presence of Christians so that the right things will be done. Christians are in the world but not of the world. In as much as we live in the world, we ought to work and if the bible is silent about the army being a wrong profession, who am I to say it is?
However, our conscience as Christians should also be a guide. If your conscience is not clear, then stay away from the army. once my mom got a job with the accounts department of the national lotteries in Ghana. She turn it down because she felt it is not right to work for the Lotteries. Let the Holy Spirit guide us into making right decisions. Pray about your professional choices and if you have doubts, then do not pursue it.
Accepted AnswerEkubeOffline0In my opinion, it is not wrong for a Christian to be in the army. God wants us to protect our families and loved ones and i think thats what the army is for. Yeah, some of their actions are motivated by political ambitions of the government in power but the soldier has little to do about that. What is your opinion?
