Therefore it is important that we discuss compulsory military training from the viewpoint of the church. We will consider the various plans which have been proposed to provide this compulsory military training for the youth of the nation. We will think out what the viewpoint of the church, of all believers in general, and of our own church body in particular, should be in regard to this matter. We will examine the relation between compulsory military training and the church.
