Thank you for reposting that . It is a good story for sure , thanks for sharing it .
There is nothing more horrific , all the souls lost in the halocaust. To think this man did all of what one man could do to stop what he could.
It is hard to imagine anyone could carry out the things that some have done . Can't imagine what it would be like to live with ones self after commiting such heartless things.

When I read Kurt Gerstein's story I knew I had to post it, because of what some were saying about the German soldier that you (777) posted. I wanted to show them that you cant alway's judge a book by it's cover, that sometime's there's more to the story than we can see. In the meantime I have learned a very important peice of history that I did'nt know.

My own father won medals at pyong yang and inchon in the Korean war, he was a Us sailor for 13 years, he got out because he didnt believe in the viet nam war, and he was going to be an advisor there and made a good decision ( 80 % of those early Mac-Sog guys got killed. )Our military men have always continued to pay the price for whats right.

I also should point out to those not familiar with the Shepherd's Chapel that we are completely independent; therefore we are not affiliated with any other church, denomination or group. As a matter of record, the only group of which I am a member is with the "Chosin Few" which is a group of Korean War veterans comprised of various military factions who fought in one of the more famous battles of that war. I am very proud to have served as a U.S. Marine in this severe winter battle in which approximately 12,000 of our troops faced a massive surprise attack by an estimated 120,000 of the Chinese communist enemy. Although suffering many casualties, the Marines and our British allies inflicted far more damage to the Chinese and were able to ultimately escape (with our dead and injured) from the Chosin Reservoir where we were at a grave disadvantage. Despite being wounded I survived this war because, I believe, the Lord had further plans and a purpose for my life. I have never forgotten the discipline of the U.S. Marine Corps and the lessons learned in war. If I teach like a Marine DI (Drill Instructor) it is with love because I know first hand the value of well educated and trained troops. In fact the root word behind the word "disciples" is "discipline". The Bible frequently uses military terms to convey how we must prepare to face spiritual warfare. As Christians our ultimate enemy is not "flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places, to wit we must put on the whole armour of God" (Ephesians 6:10-19).

Battle of Chosin Reservoir

Part of the Korean War
A column of the U.S. 1st Marine Division move through Chinese lines during their breakout from the Chosin Reservoir
Date 27 November – 13 December 1950
Location
Chosin Reservoir, in modern-day Changjin County, South Hamgyong Province, North Korea

The Battle of Chosin Reservoir, also known as the Chosin Reservoir Campaign or the Changjin Lake Campaign (Chinese: &#38271;&#27941;&# 28246;&#25112;&#24441; ; pinyin: Cháng J&#299;n H&#363; Zhàn Ý),[nb 4] was a decisive battle in the Korean War. Shortly after the People's Republic of China entered the conflict, the People's Volunteer Army 9th Army[nb 1] infiltrated the northeastern part of North Korea and surprised the US X Corps at the Chosin Reservoir area. A brutal 17 day battle in freezing weather soon followed. In the period between 27 November and 13 December 1950, 30,000[5] United Nations (UN) troops (nicknamed "The Chosin Few") under the command of Major General Edward Almond were encircled by approximately 60,000[5] Chinese troops under the command of Song Shi-Lun. Although Chinese troops managed to surround and outnumber the UN forces, the UN forces broke out of the encirclement while inflicting crippling losses on the Chinese. The evacuation of the X Corps from the port of Hungnam marked the complete withdrawal of UN troops from North Korea.

What your old False Prophet has done or not done is irrelivant to this forum ... you are nothing but a major spammer . Anyone with any sence would stay as far away from that NUT job as they can get . Coming from a man who Lies on Jesus ... there isnt anthing he could say would be worth listening to .Jesus certanily didnt ordaine Mr. Murray to fly off in a UFO with a GIANT spirit being , neither did Jesus ever say He would return in Murrays cow pasture in a UFO to train Murrays soul to fly .. No nothing in Gods word says Murray would meet God in another dimension ... and teach Murray another gospel ... Murray is well known FALSE PROPHET... every last one of those prophesies Murray claims his occultic spirit guide told him would happen FAILED ...
