Military Ministry, a national organization and subsidiary of the fundamentalist Christian organization Campus Crusade for Christ, says its staffers are responsible for “working with chaplains and military personnel to bring lost soldiers closer to Christ, build them in their faith, and send them out into the world as government-paid missionaries.”

from Common Dreams, Thursday August 16, 2007:
Plans by a Christian group to send an evangelical video game to U.S. troops in Iraq were abruptly halted yesterday by the Department of Defense after ABC News inquired about the program.
Operation Start Up (OSU) Tour, an evangelical entertainment troupe that actively proselytizes among soldiers, will not be sending the “apocryphal” video game in care packages as planned, according to the department.0816 06
“Left Behind: Eternal Forces” was inspired by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins’ best-selling book series about the battle of Armageddon, in which believers of Jesus Christ fight the Antichrist.
The game has inspired controversy among freedom of religion advocates since it was released last year.
“It’s a horrible game,” said the Rev. Timothy Simpson of the Christians Alliance for Progress. “You either kill or covert the other side. This is exactly what the Osama bin Ladens of the world have portrayed us.”
Troy Lyndon, the producer of the game, said the game’s “warfare” is not violent, and that it emphasizes “spiritual battles” over fighting with guns. The game gives incentives to recruit believers instead of killing the forces of the Antichrist, according to Lyndon.

Those “lost soldiers” really are- they forsake
basic Christian teachings of peace on earth, thou shalt not kill. Perhaps what they seek is their own atonement.
