Apparently a FEMA videographer asked cleanup volunteers in Mississippi to change their Salvation Army T-shirts before he would film their efforts. The feature on Fox News was interesting enough in its own right. What was surprising was the statement by the news show anchor that she wasn’t aware the Salvation Army was a Christian organization.
What? Really? The word “Salvation” in their name wasn’t a clue?
Granted, you can’t automatically assume every organization with “Jesus”, “Christian”, or “Salvation” in their name is really a Christian group. But the S/A has a very clear track record. I have worked with the Salvation Army several times and while I don’t agree with 100% of their theology or methodology, I gotta admit they have their stuff together and their solid on the essentials. They’re good people and diligent servants (or would that be warriors) for Christ.
