Did Jesus die for Afghanis or Americans? Dear Pastor, it's heartening to see more support for US' exit from Afghanistan. I believe your position on troop exit is certainly influenced by Mr.Sitton' friendship with you and also by the unsaved service members who lost/losing their lives. As a non-American christian, it's quite saddening and depressing to observe a lack of similar concern for the lives of innocent afghanis who are drone striked or fall prey to aggressive tactics by the US. The US army is not in afghanistan for the protection of ordinary afghanis and certainly not the security of US citizens, quite the contrary, it's being used by extremists to cause more mayhem and devastation to all parties involved. The US govt is playing hegemonistic/petro-dollar politics in the middle-east at the cost of thousands of lives on both sides and unfortunately 'The Church'
has been at best a mute spectator, at worst an enthusiastic cheerleader. Jesus died for Mr.Sitton,me,you and the unsaved Afghanis too, didn't He? Were Jesus to write an email on behalf of the ordinary Afghan citizens against an invading military, would Mr.Young take the same decision?
