America has forgotten who brought this country so far so quickly. Christians built this country and wrote the constitution. The educational foundation of the country was forged by Christian Universities with names like Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Oxford—Once Christian? Yes. (see http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/am/v2/n3/harvard-yale-princeton-oxford-once-christian ). In arrogance and ignorance Americans deny his existance all the while recording the date of his death with the writing of the date. Talk about blind. i was not always a Christain and after joining the Army at 17 years of age I chased women and drank enough booze to float a battleship. Throughout my military career I had an understanding with God (so i thought) if he left me alone I would reciprocate so I never honored him but I also never intentionally blasphemed against him. I lived in this ignorance until the day came when I found myself wounded in a rain of bullets that seemed to be unending. I was afraid for my life and I cried out to God and he heard my prayer. Almost immediately the firing stopped as I heard the familiar sound of an A-10 Warthog pummeling the rooftop and the building where the fire was coming from. Why most this be God and not just a lucky break or good close air support from an AF combat support group? Simple, we were a deep recon team that observed radio silence for days at a time. No one knew where we were at that time and I had not been able to get to the radio in the "rail". Even from a low altitude there would virtually be no way for a pilot to identify friendly vs. foe at 500 ft and 400 miles an hour but low and behold there he was like a knight in shining armour. I would learn later that no such aircraft and no such fire mission or sorte existed. I couldn't even tell you where it came from or where it went and what's worse neither could anyone else. I was able to get on the radio and raise an element from the 101st Airborne and was able to be extracted and moved to a forward LZ and medivaced back to a field medical center and from there to the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, Germany. I had broken my deal with God and had not left him alone that day and to my great benefit he had not left me alone either. I could have easily been killed by enemy or friendly fire that day along with the other member of my team but God had another plan for me and my life. God knows I had seen enough death and for me to die it almost seemed correct. View the links below and decide for yourself. My only regret is the fact I wasted so much time through pride an arrogance not serving him. I was foolish through pride and the love of sin. Don't make that mistake. Lee Stroble was among the biggest skeptics in the nation and he had the full resources of the Chicago Tribune at his disposal to finally shut the mouth of the Christians and disprove their beliefs. That didn't happen and what did will shock even the greatest among the skeptics and nonbelievers.
