Afghan Bibles Confiscated by U.S. Military

Bibles sent to a soldier serving in Afghanistan by his home church are creating a stir.
They were printed in two Afghan languages with hope of distribution to the people.    

A CBN News military chaplain source says the intention was good-hearted but not the way to go, calling it, "an invitation to get someone killed if they are found with it."

"If anyone ties our goal of destroying the Taliban with Christianity we will lose our allies, lose our ground, and truly turn it into a holy war," he said.

The story surfaced from an Al Jazeera documentary. A military spokesperson says the Bibles were confiscated and never distributed.
