(USA)–Meanwhile, this week, the American Tract Society began printing their latest tract entitled “So Help Me, God”. ATS’s Mark Brown says they are specifically targeting the military because the phrase is based on an oath. “It’s actually a phrase that was started by George Washington. It was an oath and at the very end of the oath he said, “So help me, God.” And, we’ve come out with a tract that talks about: what is an oath, and why do you say that…and it’s targeted for the military.” The tract is taken from a book of the same name that asks its readers to re-evaluate those words. “On one of the most important days of your life, it says, you asked God to help you when you took your military oath. If you have not entrusted your life to Him, you are neglecting the ultimate source of help available; and it goes on and talks about how you can have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.” ATS is hoping to use the relationships they have with legislators, chaplains, and Christian bookstores, to get the tract into the hands of the military.
