“If men were angels, no government would be necessary,” said James Madison, Father of the U.S. Constitution. Since our natures are bent toward evil, someone must have the authority to protect innocent people from those who want to do evil. God gave the government that authority. Is it Christian to use force to restore the peace?
Frank invites former USAF Pararescue jumper (PJ), Jason Sweet, on the show to discuss how special forces training and combat operations provide parallels to the Christian life. Jason, who now trains special forces candidates through socomathlete.com, shares his experience in PJ training and in combat in Afghanistan. This is a fascinating show.
