Rifle Scopes for Jesus
by Rick Boxx
February 22, 2010
For decades, Trijicon engraved scripture references on all products. In response to recent Department of Defense concerns, and a government policy against proselytizing, Trijicon, a supplier of rifle scopes to the U.S. military, voluntarily stopped putting Bible references on all military products.
Although some Christians may feel Trijicon sold out their faith, by bending to the government's wishes, I think they're just modeling the Apostle Peter's philosophy.
In 1 Peter 5:15-16 he said, "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience."
Being bold with our faith at work is important, but don't forget to temper it with gentleness and respect, especially for those who don't want it forced on them.
