    CIA Motto

    Whether official or unofficial, it's interesting to note that the motto of the CIA, engraved on the floor of the lobby at Langley, is John 8:32: "...Ye shall know the truth and it shall set you free."

    I always figured the intelligence establishment should use some cryptic gnostic lingo instead of that verse. The NSA's unofficial tongue-in-cheek mantra is: "In God we trust, in all others we monitor."

    Hey while I'm thinking of it--- The CIA should add a statue of Rahab the harlot beside the one of revolutionary patriot and spy Nathaniel Hale. HEHE

  9. Nobody ever uses the full quote.
    Joh 8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
    Joh 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

    I hardly think the CIA are continuing in His Word.

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
