Mr Thomas 'Tom' St John - Coleman

Charity details

Soldiers' And Airmen's Scripture Readers Association

A brief look at the New Testament will show that Jesus Christ was often in touch with soldiers and was concerned for them personally and spiritually.

Soldiers were also near Him when he died. Some remained quite unmoved by His sufferings but to the Centurion commanding the execution detail there came a great moment of spiritual insight that led to his clear confession, "This was the Son of God!".

It is notable that the first Gentile church meeting took place in the Army quarter of another Roman Centurion, named Cornelius (Acts 10).

It remains as important now as it was then that Christians, following Jesus' example, should be concerned with the spiritual welfare of military personnel.
