A Brief History of Salvation Army

feeding the poorThe Salvation Army is a charitable Christian organization with a Christian Methodist infrastructure andĀ  over one and a half million members worldwide and counting.

The organization has military-like roots, and it’s members, who are called salvationists carry out tasks in an infantry-like fashion.

The Salvation Army was founded by William and Catherine Booth, who had the vision of saving the poorest people in the world from hunger both in the body and in the spirit. This was how the name was appended–they are military men who serve to save the hungry from poverty.

It was established in London in 1865. William Booth, originally a pastor, named it the East London Christian Mission. His prior mission was to gather the needy and lost sheep (read: poor people) and establish a church for them. But this changed a little because he wanted to reach to the unfortunate so the charitable institution came into being.

In 1878, he reformed the structure of the foundation liking it to the armed forces. Booth was per se the general of the organization. It was birthed with the current name because of a May 19 and 20, 1878 report stating that “the Christian Mission is a volunteer army.” Booth’s son and George Railton, retorted and paraphrased his line and replaced the statement. Hence, with the name, it was likened to the structure of the military, complete with colors, uniforms and hymns.

They are by principle a christian charity organization but they have monickers such as general, officers and soldiers. As Booth was the first general, his wife was coined the mother of the foundation. They arranged their tasks this way: William ministered while Catherine solicited to the upper class as well as preach, which a rare profession to have as a woman.

There are three key principles that the foundation operate in: soup, soap, and salvation. Soup stands for the outreach of the hungry in the body, soap stands for the homeless needing fresh clothes and get up especially during church services. The last stands for the spiritual aspect of the person and how the institution helps a person to be nearer to God.

In 1880 the organization expanded to three countries: The United States, in Ireland and in Australia. The structure of the foundation in some countries does not have a centralized official officer. Some established it as a sole charity group though they bearing the new name of the East London Christian Mission.

Tracking the records of this organization, it now operates in up to 126 nations supporting 175 languages. They have set up booth camps that offers shelter, disaster relief and humanitarianism from third-world countries.

Consider Joining The US Special Forces And Making The World A Safer Place

Certainly the US special forces does a lot to keep our country safe, but they kinds of cloak and dagger operations are only one part of the job for Special Forces team members.

Interestingly enough, the special forces have been around since the early nineteen hundreds and they have played an important part in all kinds of different overseas operation where traditional kinds of warfare just wouldn’t cut the mustard on their own.

One of the best things about the Special Forces is the fact that they are able to sneak in and take care of business quickly and efficiently, unlike conventional combat which can create massive amounts of damage.

If you are tired of looking at the mirror and seeing a skinny guy looking back at you, this is probably a good place to start (you can start by watching a video about SpecForce Alpha). Then the next step is hitting the gym and starting on a sensibleĀ  supplementation regime.

Here are a few more tips you may want to follow in order to get in shape. Even if you don’t join the Special Forces, getting in great shape is always important.

Sure that is an added benefit, but it takes time; you must be willing to hit the gym and go on a diet to achieve the body that you have always dreamed of. The first thing you must do is go on a lifestyle change. Stop or at least reduce the amount of processed and junk food you eat, and quit smoking while you are at it.

Next, join a gym and get a personal trainer. As a beginner, joining a gym and getting a personal trainer is important to avoid developing bad habits when you lift weights and exercise. Doing exercises and weight lifting properly help you get the results that you are looking for. A personal trainer also helps you push yourself to the limit.
