A U.S. Marine had a curious way to show Iraqis that we are not crusaders in the country to claim their country for Jesus: he passed out Christian coins at a checkpoint. Iraqis complained and the Marine has been pulled for duty in Falluja.
Falluja has seen some of the most intense insurgent activity in past years, though it has improved greatly according to various reports.
One of the coins is stamped with the words “Where will you spend eternity?” and on the other side it quotes John 3:16 that reads, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”
