Non-Denominational/Combat Vietnam Veteran, saved, but thinks he is going to hell for combat acts

In my opinion, since I believe it is a sin to take a human life even in war, I do believe that any sin is forgivable except unbelief in Jesus Christ. Paul was involved secondarily in the stoning of Steven, and was forgiven. Many Roman solders in the first 3 centuries of the Christian left the Roman army or were martyred for trying to leave. So to sum it up, if we repent of our sins (any sins) and ask the forgiveness of Christ through His shed blood, we will be forgiven.

Thanks, Gary Cummings, M.Div., Vietnam Era Vet, HM2, USN
