Asked in Salvation Army

Why is it that the salvation army is like a cult?

User Avatar
The Salvation Army though a Christian denomination (not a cult) does appear to some as one due, to the military titles and military structure it holds to. This is culturally taboo recently considering militia groups etc, but essentially it has one leader like the Catholic Church, Anglican church etc. It also has a council that elects that leader like the Council of Cardinals in the Catholic Church, Anglican Church etc. So it does appear to be a cult due to the culture wars of late. During the 1800's when it was founded it caused the numbers of adherents and soldiers of the Salvation Army to explode due to its ease to understand, it clear lines of authority, its global evangelical mission and especially resonated within the culture of the UK.

Check with Goodwill, the Salvation Army, St. Vincent de Paul, and your regularly contracted trash collector, as they may have a designated day once each month for 'large items'.
Asked in Salvation Army

What does the salvation armys symbol mean to them?

User Avatar
There are two well known Salvation Army symbols. The older one, the crest: The 'S' in the centre stands for salvation, which means that Christians believe that Jesus has saved them from death and gives them life for ever in Heaven. The swords show that they are fighting against wrong. The seven dots show the truths from the gospel that Salvationists believe in. The sun around the edge shows the light and fire of the Holy Spirit. The Salvation Army motto, Blood and Fire, is also on the crest. The cross is a reminder that people can only be saved because Jesus gave his life for them on a cross. The crown at the top shows the reward they get in Heaven for loving and helping God. The newer one, the shield: This one is far less busy; the use of a shield relates to the shield of faith from Ephesians 6:16.

What does the Salvation Army do?

The Salvation Army runs a Christian charity. They bring aid and help to those in need, whether this be due to poverty, unemployment or other issues. They bring help and hope. They are there to help in times of crisis. The Salvation Army has people in many, many nations around the world, and because of this, their people can help when natural or manmade disasters hit, even though it takes days or even weeks for other agencies to get in. For example, when the cyclone hit Myanmar, being a closed country, no international aid could get in for some time. But because the Salvation Army had its own citizens within that country, they were able to get aid to the victims immediately. When the devastating bushfires hit Victoria, the Salvation Army was the first organisation in there, helping the victims in practical ways immediately, providing shelter and basic necessities. Their fundraising provided financial aid immediately, whereas the victims need to wait weeks and even months for the funds from the Red Cross. Similarly, when the earthquakes hit Japan and Christchurch in New Zealand, the Salvation Army was there from the start. They sent in teams from other countries, working tirelessly around the clock, behind the scenes, to distribute money and goods to the most needy and all those who had lost possessions. N.B. - The answerer of this question is not affiliated with the Salvation Army in any way, but is merely writing straightforward truths and statistics.

What are some slogans for the salvation army?

User Avatar
The Salvation Army has been carrying that message to the world for the past century and a half. It speaks volumes about the sender -about an ethic-about a point of view concerning a well-lived life-about charity, which is love. It's not a "slogan." It's a fact-a reality that many different organizations embrace as they work to achieve their own mission. I like Army slogans that seem to reveal the altruism of the Army-that immediately communicate what we're all about-that we're worldwide, made up of multi-national populations of every race-that we're imbued with an energy that drives us, not only to give "things" away, but also to lend our selves to others without expectation of anything in return. We are motivated by the plaintive cry of the babe of Bethlehem whose life radiated a similar message for mankind. We present ourselves to the general public primarily with our actions. We communicate our commitments with our behavior. We show our love for mankind in the dimensions of our caring. Maybe that's why my favorite slogan about the Army is the single word: OTHERS It's probably a motto more than a slogan. It communicates our ideals, our commitments, our hopes for mankind, the driving force of our love for all people everywhere. It's not very well known by the general public, but those who seek us out know that it exists-and not just at the Christmas season. So, what is a slogan? In his book Creative Advertising, Charles Whittier says a slogan is "a statement of such merit about a product or service that it is worthy of continuous repetition in advertising, is worthwhile for the public to remember, and is phrased in such a way that the public is likely to remember it." It's what the public takes away with them after an interaction. The Army has many phrases that most of us tend to accept as slogans. I've been staring at one over the bell of my horn during this Christmas season. It's the sign on the top of the kettle stand. SHARING IS CARING This comes close to being a fine Christmas slogan. It's simple, neat, believable, memorable, motivates action, and says enough about our belief system that people relate it to a facet of the Army's work. It says "Give!"-and that's exactly what we want to have happen. This statement asks those who view it to do something. It might be a two slogan sign. It also bears another expression-a phrase for a particular time that says: NEED KNOWS NO SEASON This explores the "why" of giving. It fits well with the top of the sign-is definitely a soft-sell, a very soft-sell, non-competitive, but very true. It also gives some hint that Christmas kettle funds will be used the year around to meet the needs of those in distress. We have another statement or slogan that generates an image of the Army and also identifies our mission very well. It says: HEART TO GOD, HAND TO MAN I've always liked this one because it's so "us." It doesn't seek action by anyone or even stimulate giving. It simply explains what we're all about. It's simple, straightforward and concise. It definitely provides the reader-viewer-observer with a notion of our personality. We worship God and we help people. In an age of feminism the "man" line might stir some questions and we have to assume that the reader interprets it as "mankind." It differentiates us from other charities and sends a message that we can be trusted. It is not competitive. It's probably a little hard to remember, and some get the "heart" and "hand" mixed up. One does not see it in print very much anymore. Another historic "slogan" presents a point of view concerning humanity. The cover of Diane Winston's book Red-Hot and Righteous: the Urban Religion of The Salvation Army has a poster used in a fundraising campaign as the United States entered World War I in 1919. It trumpets the belief that: A MAN MAY BE DOWN BUT HE'S NEVER OUT This strikes me as a hope for humanity-a desire to inform people that there is a "rescue" available that concerns itself with both social and spiritual issues. It says we believe in the saving power of God's grace and are willing to expend energy to any and all to assist desperate people in dealing with heavy social problems. We also have another expression, phrase, slogan, "promise," currently driven by some highly creative people who work with National Headquarters. We find it sprinkled on signs, shirts, hats, coats and mostly on any Army correspondence sent anywhere. It is supposed to be a "new brand"-a "promise," I suppose, of commitment and assistance. The promise part is printed under separate cover and is not easily available- although NEW FRONTIER printed it in its entirety in the June 11, 2005 issue. The brand-slogan-promise includes the traditional red shield over the phrase: DOING THE MOST GOOD I'm not particularly enamored with this one. I think it comes across as a little pretentious with a hint of competitiveness. Somehow, it just doesn't say "us" to me. I know many seem to like it, so I wear my shirt with that logo emblazoned on my left breast-but not if I'm going to a coordinating council or a United Way meeting. It seems to need an explanation to give accurate meaning to the expression.

What is salvation?

For Christians, hell is the final destination after death unless you are 'saved'. They believe that salvation is the process of believing in Jesus so that they avoid going to hell, but go to heaven as a reward for their belief.
Asked in Salvation Army

How did the Salvation Army get their name?

User Avatar
When William Booth and his wife started the Salvation Army in 1865, it was originally called the East London Christian Mission. The story goes that at a meeting of its leaders, someone said that they were like a great volunteer army, to which William Booth, the Army's founder, replied something like: I am not a volunteer for I am compelled to do what I do. We are not a volunteer army, we are a Salvation Army. In 1878, the organisation became known as the Salvation Army. They adopted a uniform and adapted Christian words to popular tunes sung in the public bars.

How does the salvation army make money?

User Avatar
The Salvation Army is given funds from the Governments of certain countries, (depending on which one you are in.) Also, 12 percent of the funds collected through kettles and thrift store operations go to supporting the Salvation Army financially, while the other 88 percent goes to better the community. There are also many people who make rather large donation to the Salvation Army for the soul purpose of bettering its operations.

Asked in Famous People, Salvation Army

What was the main issue William Booth had to face why was it a problem?

User Avatar
William Booth was concerned with drunkenness in East London. In his day, even youngsters were often seen reeling through the streets, and drunkenness was a serious problem. Booth and his band, called at first "The Christian Mission" tried to reach these people with the Gospel of Christ. Thus, he went into the streets with his message and suffered considerable opposition and hostility. Many early Salvationists were injured by mobs. Some of the converts of these efforts were so notoiously "bad" that the churches of that time did not want them in the congregations. Thus, the Salvation Army was born as a church to take these people in and to nurture them with the Word of God. The Army is a world-wide church today. In addressing drunkenness, Booth thought that those who sought deliverance should be gotten out of the city and taken to the country. There they would receive good food and honest work and be given a program of recovery from alcoholic addiction. At the present time, the Army has various ARC's (Adult Rrehabilitation Centers) where men and women who suffer from addiction to alcohol or durgs can get spiritual and practical help. They receive good care and fine food, and they do practical work such as sorting out the various items that are given to the Army for resale in their stores. The profits of these stores go to support the work of the Army in rehabilitating addicts. The success rate of these ARC's is something over 80%. This is a considerably higher rate than some other methods of rehabilitating drunkards or drug addicts. It is the spritual aspect of the program which produces better results.

Was William Booth founder of the Salvation Army related to John Wilkes Booth?

User Avatar
There is no evidence to suggest there was any close or distant family connection between William Booth and John Wilkes Booth. The founder of the Salvation Army was born on 10 April 1829 in Sneinton, Nottingham, England. The assassin of President Lincoln was born in 1839 in America.
