Yesterday, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I discussed how pastor Saeed has been imprisoned by Muslims, for the last two (2) years.
In case you are not aware, I would like you to know that pastor Saeed, is a Christian who converted from Islam.
He is not alone, as a convert.
A while ago, I wrote about a friend of mine who lives here in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. His name is Zachariah Anani. He also is a Christian, who converted from Islam. Here's a link about Zach: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zachariah_Anani.
What is the difference between Zach and pastor Saeed?
Pastor Saeed is imprisoned in Iran. Zachariah Anani, is not. Zach is living, here in Canada.
The difference isn't just that pastor Saeed is imprisoned, and Zach is not.
Just so you know, I praise God that Zach is not imprisoned, especially since he teaches Christian believers and even unsaved people, the truth about Islam. And, how it is condemning Christians, everywhere.
The difference is that in Iran, Islam has control over life issues. Here in Canada, Islam does not.
At least not for the moment.
Knowing that our country has been allowing more and more Muslims to immigrate here, this may change in the future. Don't forget, they are also enlarging their families, also.
In addition, they try to convert people to Islam.
Here in Windsor, I was told that at mosques, they are giving out copies of the Qur'an. The real copies are being used by some Muslims, while new converts are being given copies that do not speak the truth in English. I heard that this is being done, to help convert people and let people think that Islam is a religion of peace... even though it is not.
Although some people, who have no knowledge of the truth, may be lured into believing this, I do not. After all, TAQIYYA allows Muslims to lie to infidels (those who are not Islamic... like us).
So, how can anyone believe anything that Muslims say?!
Please realize that not everything being taught about Islam is in the Qur'an. The HADITH info, also gives Muslims direction on living life.
In case you're wondering why I write about information like this, is because I want to speak up so that fellow Christians will understand the truth about Islam. In addition, I believe that if we who understand the truth about Islam do not speak up, then we will be contributing towards people being misled into becoming Muslim, instead of coming to Christ.
As I've mentioned in the past, there have been times when I have been spoken to and/or treated in an evil manner, by others.
Thinking of this, brought to mind, Matthew 5:11, "Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake."
Yes, I have been reviled. I've been spoken to in an evil way, being falsely accused, regarding speaking truth.
Even a fellow Christian (someone I've known since childhood) spoke against me in an evil manner, the other day. And, then blocked me, on Facebook (FB).
In a way, it is a form of persecution.
No matter what, I am grateful that the persecution I am receiving is nothing like the form of persecution that pastor Saeed is experiencing. Especially, since he has been suffering for two (2) years now. And, his family has, also.
All I can say is... I'm blessed.
But, so is pastor Saeed. His reward has not yet come; it will come later. Either here on earth, or in heaven.
Please, join me in prayer for him, and for his family. Thank you. May God bless you.
Until next time...
