Religious Convictions of Adventists in the Military

The following information is provided to assist military officers in dealing with problems arising from the religious convictions of members of the Seventh-dayAdventistChurch in the Armed Forces of the United States of America.
Seventh-day Adventists are proud of their country and its government, and they are loyal to its flag and the principles for which is stands. They are ready to serve their nation faithfully, even, if necessary, to give their lives in such service. They ask only that they be allowed to serve in harmony with their deep religious convictions.
Seventh-day Adventists believe and teach that God established both the church and civil government. Therefore, they believe that the Christian has a dual loyalty. The church has to do with religious and spiritual matters while the government or state deals with civil affairs and social order. This principle of separation of church and state is set forth in the First Amendment to the Constitution. Religious liberty is recognized as one of the basic principles of the American way of life.
