He spends two paragraphs 'guarding the meanings of words' and 'maintaining the integrity of this word,' only to goof it up by calling God a sent one? That is a very difficult proposition to swallow.
I’ve spent four years in the Army as a Chaplain, and 19 of those months I’ve been deployed to either Iraq or Afghanistan. Many with whom I serve have seen combat all over; Panama, Bosnia, Iraq (the first and second time), as well as Afghanistan. I know several who have six or more deployments in their careers.
