Air Force Veteran Asks, “Who Would Jesus Bomb?”

We now have proof that one Air Force veteran has taken our message, “Who Would Jesus Bomb?” to heart, or more correctly, to his forearm and, has become a walking billboard.  At the second vigil held at McLean Bible Church, just outside Washington, DC, Chuck Carlson wrote a report, “Al Quds Day and A Demonstration for Peace at McLean Bible Church,” that concluded:

Air Force vet, Jason Brock, was inspired by a WHTT Vigil at his church!

“Two young men came out and reported how Pastor Lon explained our presence to the congregation: “We are being picketed…they are against Israel.” Pastor Lon may be a “nice Jewish boy” as he claims, but on August 19th he played his media card, creating his own version of the truth, just as MSNBC and Fox News do.  He knew we were not “picketing” the church, but challenging what he teaches. He wanted his flock to think we were there to attack them, not to correct his own errors of scripture.

We know Pastor Lon knew our purpose, because we sent him and most members of his large staff a two-page letter that told them exactly what we would do and why we were doing it.

One of those few who came out made my day. He is a former Air Force veteran, and he showed me the spot on his substantial forearm where he said he would soon have the words from our message tattooed: “WHO WOULD JESUS BOMB.”  He said something like this: I want this on a tattoo because it is the essence of the conflict between war and Christianity.  He is one who was not afraid to face the truth….that the McLean Bible Church is part of the war-making problem.”

Through LinkedIn, the business version of social media, Chuck connected with the young man that was moved by our message.  His name is Jason Brock.  Jason’s tattoo references Matthew 5: 9 that is used in another of our messages:  “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.”

Thank you, Jason, for standing up for the truths that Jesus taught us.
