VA fixes rules to allow Bibles, religious symbols
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) recently revised its directives permitting religious literature, symbols and displays at VA facilities to protect religious liberty for Veterans and families while ensuring inclusivity and nondiscrimination.

The move aims to simplify and clarify the department’s policies governing religious symbols, and spiritual and pastoral care, which have been interpreted inconsistently at various VA facilities in recent years, resulting in unfortunate incidents that interrupted certain displays.

Effective July 3, these changes will help ensure that patrons within VA have access to religious literature and symbols at chapels as requested and protect representations of faith in publicly accessible displays at facilities throughout the department. ...

I thought that Bibles and religious symbols were already permitted at the various campuses of the Veterans Affairs Medical Centers because of the fact that they have a chapel.

No one follows Christ 100% of the time as a result of the sin still remaining (1 John 1:8-10), so we can only follow their example when their example actually follows Christ. Same goes for anyone.

Sometimes, Christians get enamored with particiular leaders without considering that those leaders had sin, with the exception of Jesus. They need to look beyond those leaders to see Jesus and follow Him.

"Let us continue to endeavor to follow in their steps and example as they followed Christ."

Yes indeed, if they followed Christ as you say, we can do no better thing than the same.

I found the book quite edifying and am certain there are others worth your time of which I am unaware. Some have recommended Rutherford's letters. I found Ian Maclaren's (really Dr. John Watson) treatment of Graham of Claverhouse an interesting and forgiving approach and probably too soft on him, but I also disagree with his theology which was following modernism.

Indeed, there are many of whom the world was not worthy who have found their eternal reward and rest in Christ. Let us continue to endeavor to follow in their steps and example as they followed Christ.

Absolutely, John UK. I don't know how honest chaplains do their job and hold themselves together. They certain need more prayer.
I found John Howie's Scots Worthies to be very valuable in understanding the Reformation in Scotland through Scots' eyes. It's available here for free if you're interested -- http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/28272
One of my favorite sections is when Andrew Melville upbraids James VI. But there are many excellent biographies of the "Worthies" and also of the enemies of the Scots Reformation.
Being raised Presbyterian and coming to faith as an adult in a Presbyterian church, that's pretty much my heritage. But there are many who tread the difficult path in dealing with the Crown, not just my forefathers. Grateful for their testimony of faithfulness and the Lord's upholding.
Ah, thank you QC, when I get back from meeting I will check that out, or download it, and will certainly read it. I know that there were brethren and sisters who suffered during those times, who now have their everlasting rest. Thanks for sharing.

That's an accurate assumption, John UK. The chaplain is required to support the beliefs of everyone, and there were a variety of literature choices supporting a variety of religions.
There is no national covenant here in the States any more than there is in Scotland. In fact, one could argue that secular humanism is the national, enforced religion. Didn't Knox pre-date the National Covenant?
It would make a chaplain's job impossible for a Christian, eh QC? In just the same way as it would be impossible to be a politician?

When it comes to church history, and the evident workings of God, how I wish I had studied more on the subject. I would love to sit down and be taught by someone who is acquainted with the Scottish church history, its ups and downs, its leaders and its thinking.

I suppose I have neglected that aspect, because I have always been a dissenter, non-conformist, holding the separation of church and state, as all Baptists do.

In Britain, apart from 1 specialist civilian NHS hospital in the Midlands, but which has some military medical staff attached, and field hospitals in areas of conflict, we no longer have specific military hospitals.

As far as veterans, we do not have any kind of state provision for them except a pension, but there is the British Legion, and a variety of charities and regimental associations, etc.,that run private rehabilitation facilities, long term homes, hospices and so on for ex-military. The famous Royal Hospital in Chelsea, (not a hospital at all, but a grand home for ex-Army with a distinctive red uniform for its residents), is one of these, and one or two private medical hospitals, one of which in central London the Queen uses if she needs serious treatment.

As for military chaplaincies , these are multi-faith, though some evangelicals are present.

There is also, separate from the chaplaincies, a lay run Scripture Readers Association, which is voluntary and usually ex-servicemen and women who are permitted into barracks, military facilities, to share the scriptures and assist in other ways.

Actually, I am pleasantly surprise every time I pass the chaplain's office at the VA hospital where I'm enrolled. There is a large literature rack with a number of solid, albeit basic, resources for pointing the way to Christ. How that has continued is beyond me, other than thru the hand of a Gracious Lord. But some Christian witness continues in that small corner.
It is an encouragement, QC. But I'm guessing that the same laws would protect tracts and literature from Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, RCC, etc.

The only solution to that sort of thing was tried in the UK once, something about a Solemn League and Covenant, a militant church, a John Knox figurehead.

Is that it?
