Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I feel the need to educate people to understand that Christians in various parts of the world, are being persecuted, and more.
Some people die.
I recently watched a CNN video, entitled Iran executes woman who killed her alleged rapist: http://www.cnn.com/2014/10/25/world/meast/iranian-woman-execution/index.html?sr=fb102514IranExecution10aStoryLink.
Recently, I received an e-mail from the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ). Here is what it said:
Asia Bibi may die for an act of kindness.
A Pakistani Christian mother of five, she offered a cup of water to a Muslim neighbor.
For that, Asia Bibi was called “unclean,” and her Christian faith “filthy.”
Then, when she defended her faith and refused to convert to Islam, she was sentenced to death.
We must stand with Asia. At the ACLJ, we’re mobilizing our resources worldwide to plead her case, but we need your help:
Sign the Petition: Spare Asia Bibi’s Life.
ACLJ Chief Counsel
This sort of thing seems to be happening on a regular basis, in Pakistan. Although not much has been heard about stuff like this in the past, we are hearing about it, now.
Here is a link to an article by Times of India - Pakistan entitled, Christian couple burned alive for allegedly desecrating Quran: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/world/pakistan/Christian-couple-burned-alive-in-Pakistan-for-allegedly-desecrating-Quran/articleshow/45036018.cms?
It's amazing how the word 'allegedly' is commonly used. It seems to matter not, if what happened is truth.
Truth doesn't seem to matter to Muslims. It seems that if they want to rid the world of someone, usually an infidel (someone who is not a Muslim), they move forward with persecution, whether or not it is deserved.
Something I am thankful for, is the fact that God... the True God, has told us in His Word, the Bible, that Christians will eventually experience persecution. And, that those who suffer persecution for doing what He would have us do, are blessed.
Just as He told us, in Matthew 5:10, "Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
These fellow Christians spoken about here, on today's LwL entry, are definitely blessed. Even if they have suffered.
Muslims may think they are having control over the world, but they don't. Anyone who has read God's entire Word, the Bible, knows the ending.
Our God wins!
Even so, please pray for our fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord, who are being persecuted.
Until next time...
