Any person or nation that forces women to servein the military is committing a sin (Page 8).
GOD'S BIBLE LAWSON MILITARY DRAFT AND WARFARE
"Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like atrumpet, and show my people their transgression,and the house of Jacob their sins. "
Isaiah 58:1.
"Sin is the transgression of the Law. "
1 John 3:4.
"Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is areproach to any people. "
Proverbs 14:34.The Godwho created the heavens and the earth gave His Laws, Statutes, and Judgments toHis People at Mt. Sinai and promised if they would obey them, He would bless them. He alsowarned them scores of times in His Holy Word that if they failed to obey His Laws, they wouldhave tribulation and great distress.In one place God summed up His warnings this way:
"' call heaven and earth to record this day .against you, that I have sebefore you life and death, blessing and cursing,' therefore, choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live...
(Deut. 36:19).Our Christian forefathers came to the North American continent with this Bible Law andwrote in their Colonial Charters that they would "obey God" and that they would establish theircivil laws "as near to the Laws of God as can be."To a great extent they did this, and most people of the world agree that the nation mostblessed of God in recent centuries has been this America which they founded.Now America is beset with great "troubles," and we hear much less of "blessings." Is itpossible we in America were blessed for "obedience to God's Laws," but are now being"cursed for disobedience"?Let us study one area of God's Law and see if we might learn something of benefit toourselves and to our nation.This will be a study of the commandments God gave Israel as to how armies were to beraised and how warfare was to be conducted. Like His oth~r laws, obedience would bringblessings to the nation, and disobedience vexations and curses.
