When John McNeill, the Scottish evangelist, landed in France for duty during the World War, he was introduced to the general in command, who said that he would like to give him suggestions about his preaching to the men. McNeill’s biographer describes the incident: "What the general wanted him to do was to instruct the men that, when they went over the top, if they fell, it would be all right for them in the next world. They had died for their country. Mr. McNeill replied: General, if one of the men under your command were to win the Victoria Cross for valor, and I were to belittle the deed by which the decoration was won, you would not like it. And I want to tell you, General, that you are cheapening my Lord’s sacrifice." The incident ended at that point."
