Christianity pure and simple

Is this a good place to be placing pro Christianity material for future Marines? Not meaning to troll but I thought Inspirational Stories might have different subject matter related to being a marine.

What would you think Inspirational Stories might mean? Don't click on this section if Christianity bothers you, which it apparently does. Don't worry about the subject matter either. Your salvation is at stake, just ignore it if you prefer, it's fine. In our post-modern age of knowing all there is to know, that's the most common response to Christianity. It goes like this----let's not let religion interfere with doing what we want to do.
Luckily, the owner of this site happens to be a committed Christian, so I doubt he'll take it down due to agnosticism or atheism. LOL

Far from remaining silent on this subject, I want to throw out some links for you in case you ever decide to Examine the Evidence for yourself, instead of talking about Christianity without knowing the first thing about it.
gotquestions.org and allaboutGod.com are two sister sites run by a former atheist.
For what salvation is: menorah.org/eetract.html
I leave off the www's because this site will block them if I type out the entire link address

As opposed to the nonsense of the FSM ? that is prevalent in today's society ? Who would you rather enter the Marines with Jesus or the flying spaghetti monster?
I do believe there are stories like that (war/fighting ) on this site, I believe the kind you assumed would be in this section ? Do a search and see if there are. S/F Moz USMC 68-70
P.S. actually I am pro Jesus

Dave, the whole point I'm trying to make is that I clicked on the Inspirational Stories expecting to find something different such as stories on MOH recipients etc, not Christianity. Gkmoz, it doesn't matter to me what religion a Marine is so long as he's competent and can send rounds down range. I've known marines of all religians over the last five yrs and have to say the majority don't care about religian. There are stories on here about brave Marines, however it seems odd to have pro-Christian material in the same forum when I know SEVERAL marines who have done those acts are atheist, or not necessarily atheist but just don't care either way. Not to troll, as I will leave it at that and not contribute to this portion anymore.

Of course the majority doesn't care about religion. We know that. But when you click on a link and find out you don't like what it contains, what is then the most natural thing in the world to do?

I Believe That Everyone Is Entitled To Their Religous Believes As Long As They Dont Try To Force It On Anyone Else.

See Dan, your showing your lack of knowledge on this subject.
Religion is one thing, but "Christianitypureandsimple" IS NOT A RELIGION !
It is how some one who would like to know about a relationship with the God of the universe may do so ! As opposed to your magical non existent sky wizard man who CANNOT under ANY circumstance do any THING PERIOD ! S/F young Bro ! You will know for sure some day ! hopefully before its to late ?

Well, call Christianity a religion, a cult, mythology, whatever you like. Call it a philosophy of the saved. it all fits, and its all appropriate.
I personally believe in a personal relationship with god, that doesn't depend on the teachings of a book that has lost a lot in the editing.
BUT! remember this, and it's true of all theology: One man's theology, is another man's belly laugh".
Whatever. If it helps get you through the day, and makes you a better person, Believe in the Force, for all I care. Just don't tell me that I am wrong and you are right, with not one single shred of empirical evidence. tell me it's what you BELIEVE and I will respect and defend you. Tell me it is the one and only truth? Well, then the conversation ends.
