There is a great conflict of interest between a born again Christian, who is an ambassador for Christ, and the military goals of any nation.
I am a Christian, born again,
My life begun anew.
The life I’ve led, the things I’ve done,
I can no longer do.
I am the Lord’s, and He is mine,
His life through me will shine.
To every kindred, tongue, and tribe,
To all of humankind.
I want to do, as Jesus taught,
Who walked this earth below.
To offer words of healing love,
Not misery and woe.
I’m here on earth, to share the Word,
Not harm to any bring.
I cannot take a human life,
And still call Jesus King.
A very narrow road I walk,
Though some do walk beside.
I cannot join in war because,
For all my Savior died.
I’m of a different Kingdom now,
A pilgrim here on earth.
Ambassador for Christ I am,
Because of my new birth.
