If you downloaded this e-book because you want to help win the precious souls of others, then you are part of a commendable small percentage. Thank you also for taking an interest in the Salvation Marines. Unlike the real Marines, which this is not affiliated with, there is no enlistment. You just put in as much or as little effort into it as you see fit. Some of the work is as simple as a few clicks on the internet.



Spiritual Warfare

Christians are in a war. We are in a war against lies. The lies that God is not relevant and Christians are a bunch of racist haters. The internet has become the main new battlefront for such ideas.

There is so much that we can do individually in this struggle that is not being done. Some of these things are really simple, but could still be effective in fulfilling the Great Commission. We want to find some of those Christians with conviction who want to do more than just sit in a church pew and donate their money.  If you are one of those, then please keep reading.

You have gifts you want to use, but you are not “ordained” so you are put into your place in the back lines. This leaves you feeling frustrated and confused. Never mind that. There is a good chance we can work together here. We are also interested in your creativity in helping shape this unit into whatever the participants want it to be. If you go to the website, there is a contact form you can fill out.

This will not be the place to endlessly argue peripheral doctrines and not accomplish any soul winning. The only contention here will be Christ, and Him crucified as payment for the sins of Man and the Bible is the literal Word of God. This must not be turned into a forum about baptism or the rapture, etc. That can be done elsewhere. The structure of this group is yet to be developed. If brethren are working together earnestly towards the goal of soul winning, then those things will be settled easily.

Here are some examples of things you can do, and those things can be done here, as a part of the Salvation Marines.

Infantry: The infantry is where you put yourself out there on the front lines. You write Christian Apologetics for publication. Apologetics are articles that contend for the faith.  We need pieces that are written in plain non-churchy language and are for free distribution. If you can write a Biblically-sound, good soul-winning article of at least 1000 words, but don’t know how to publish it online, we may be able to help you with that. Then we would add the article(s) to the list for members to promote.

Intel: You search the internet, looking for articles already written that fit our needs. After we check them out, we list them for promotion. Someone then may find out that perfect message that convicts them.

Special Forces: If you can translate articles and web pages into other languages, you would be helping the Unit multiply all of the efforts. This is so very important of a skill that should not go to waste. God will bless you for it.

Artillery: If you can set up a Twitter account (or already have one) or some other social media site, and can promote writings from our list, you would be performing an immense help with this indirect fire into populations that may otherwise never consider looking at a Christian publication. You work on gaining followers who need to hear the Gospel to your account, then retweet links to the articles.

Quartermaster: We can all pray daily for the work. God Who can do anything, supplies the spiritual power through us.

Recruiter: Multiply our efforts by bringing in more believers to fill the ranks.

Command Section: Other Administrators to the web site, etc. may be added. This effort is not meant to be for the glory of any one person, but for our Commandant, the Lord and Savior  Jesus Christ.

Divine Communication: A direct appeal to the reader to consider Jesus. If we love people, we will share, even though they may not like us for it.

 

The Fog Below is a sermonized short story on an airline where the characters engage in soul-winning.

 

People are searching for something. They can find it on the internet. Will one turn to Christ because you steered them to read this? Only eternity will reveal all.

 

People are worried over current events, with good reason. But if they follow Jesus, they will see who wins in the end.

 

A short article about creation and belief in God.

 

Insidious Coworkers: People are becoming more selfish and harder to work with all of the time. Many may find comfort in reading this from a definite Christian worldview if you help promote it.

 

Just like The Mayhem, people are worried over current events, with good reason. But if they follow Jesus, they will see who wins in the end.

 

Readers may be totally unaware that there is a battle going on for their souls. Maybe if you help promote this work, someone will understand and choose Jesus.

 

Many wonder why so many are against each other. You can let your social media followers know by suggesting they read this.

 

The Salvation Marines are not affiliated with any other Marine or Salvation organization.
