The BBC News website reported last night that the military in the US and the UK have purchased and are using in active combat weapons whose sights contain biblical references.
The references apparently read “2Cor4:6” and “Jn8:12”, which are to the following verses:
I’m all for opportunities for people to hear and respond to the gospel. But can it really be appropriate to reference the “tools of the trade” (if you will) of an employee (here, a soldier) of our armed forces with biblical material? And if the message in these references was taken to heart, would our soldiers be at arms in the first place?
The US manufacturer of the sights, Trijicon, is run by Christians. Trijicon says of itself:
What about Exodus 20:13?
