Ever notice that church and the fallen comrades or soldiers use the cross as symbol, and they use the symbol is the cross for different reasons; however, they’re are remarkably similarity. One died to set us free from the tyranny of our sin. While the other sacrifice themselves to set us free from the tyranny of the oppressor who trying to overtake the world. Both willingly went to serve, and obeyed their commanding officer. Both eventualities liberated the people from their dictators. Both were not responsible for the cause and effect of what happened. The first is the fallen soldiers; the second is Jesus Christ.
First, the solider or militaries who were men or women that enlisted in the army, navy, or air force, and were trained for combat. In the event of a threat these, men and women were willing go into harm way to protect the laws of land because they value their freedom.
While Canada and United States is known for the land of the free. They both have laws that give the citizens the right to express their religious beliefs, and worship God openly and we’re protect them from being persecuted. The laws that the government enacted laws are designed to protect the people not harm them. When we openly disagree with the laws, and politicians we able to voices are concerns. When justice is not melded properly, we’re able appeal the decision without being concern mistreated. Both countries can vote for the politicians in or out the office without any blood shed.
Many countries are governed by dictators, and they are the law, and they decide what is best for the people. Some dictators hate the American way, and want to destroy it, and level the to ground, and impose their oppressive law upon on our freedom. There’re times when war is a called for evil, where you need to eradicate the evil by sending men and women into harm way like removing tumour from your body regrettably these brave men and women are casualties of war, and their blood is shed and they sacrifice themselves, and they should be honor and remembered for their bravery. Corporal Nathan Cirillo is great example honoring the fallen solider. He was shot by terrorist while on duty at a ceremonial sentry duty.
In her novelette Where ever Go Martha Tigchelaar – Turkstra wrote these words, “These were days of great anxiety on the home front, for our parents and our church. Our concern was for boys as dad and mom lovingly called them. Needless to say, many prayers went up for each one of them. On May 4th, and 5th, 1945 the Germans finally withdrew the troops. Uncle Wilfred travel throughout Holland. That was time of great rejoicing our family in Holland, to actually hear, to touch, and see a Turkstra clan in a Canadian uniform. Many Canadians have fallen in the battle to free Holland, and thousands lay buried there. This was truly amazing. Hedser Turkstra, a cousin, told Wilford that Dad’s debt to his family –incurred years earlier to make the move to Canada –was now settled because three of his sons had joined in the fight to free Holland.”
Throughout North America and Europe there’re many grave sites with crosses on them, in remembrance of the fallen soldiers who fought so bravely and were willing to sacrifice their lives for sake of our freedom! Never forget these brave men and women who fought and sacrifice themselves for our freedom!
Jesus Christ And The Cross S Symbol Of Forgiveness
The God Man That Knew No Sin
For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
