Under what Flag do you March?

Under what Flag do you March?

Under what Flag do you March? is a Christian tract that bears on our society, the telling and living of truth or living lies, moral impurities instead.

Under what Flag do you March? Many people out there in the world supposedly are champions of the truth and good, but their actions make that conclusion rather hard to accept. They lie, cheat, steal, and break the laws of God left and right. But they are “good” supposedly, or so they keep telling us. Let’s turn to Scripture and see a little bit about what God says about the truth and lies.

Psalms 60:4 Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth.

God has given his children a banner of truth to fly over them so as to identify them to other Christians and for the world in general. But while a banner identifies the character of the people associating under that banner, we have to examine if the truth is in what people say and do, and not just accept others’ word for themselves that they are good and representing the truth. What they represent is the “truth” that they are deceived into believing, but it is not the truth of God. The facts of life do not line up between what they believe is the truth. If we are in the right, in truth and good, the we should be examples of that truth we espouse.

Psalms 119: 142 Your righteousness is eternal righteousness, and your law (is) truth. 

In other words, the law of your life is truth. The concept of a law is a principle that is obeyed rigorously.

Those Representing Truth actually practice the Truth

1 John 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:

 

The Bible proposes that if one is saved, then he walks in the light, that is, he has a life that reflects this communion with God. In this case, the saved “practice the truth“, otherwise, we live without demonstrating “the truth of God” (spiritual principles that please God), and then, John says that “we lie.” The lie is how we live. The principles of the devil are seen more favorably in your life than the principles of God. Which one best describes your life? Do you currently live the truth, or do you live the lie?

Missionary on Furlough Spiritual Needs
is an article by David Cox (veteran missionary) to help pastors and missionaries understand missionary needs.
Excerpt: When a pastor "takes in a missionary on deputation or furlough", he ministers to that missionary.... Pastors also need this encouragement as much as missionaries need it. When they get together to fellowship, they are able to encourage one another. But every pastor ministering to a returning missionary should encourage them along these lines of faithfulness and reward in eternity.
