Persecuted and Hated...

On Life with Lynnie (LwL) today, I'll be discussing something.  The issue is very important.  At least, to me.

It's regarding Kim Davis.  And, what happened to her, in USA.

You're probably aware, that she was arrested September 3rd, 2015 in Ashland, Kentucky, USA for refusing to issue a marriage license to a gay couple.  Read about it on this link by nytimes.com for the article published entitled, Clerk in Kentucky Chooses Jail Over Deal on Same-sex Marriagehttp://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/04/us/kim-davis-same-sex-marriage.html?_r=0.

Here is a link so you can read more about the situation:  http://time.com/4024556/kareem-abdul-jabbar-kim-davis/.  If you read this, you'll know that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar said, just as the link is entitled by time.com, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar:  Kim Davis Is Not a Patriot.

It amazes me that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, would make a comment like that, no matter whether or not he is Muslim.

Why do I think this?

Well, you may/may not have heard about something that is similar, but different.  It's something on an article regarding a Muslim flight attendant.  The September 3rd, 2015 article here, is by cbsnews.com, and is entitled, Muslim flight attendant accuses ExpressJet Airlines of suspending her for not serving alcoholhttp://www.cbsnews.com/news/muslim-flight-attendant-expressjet-airlines-alcohol/.

Please, read this link by bizpacreview.com entitled, Muslim flight attendant sues after she's suspended for refusing to serve alcoholhttp://www.cbsnews.com/news/muslim-flight-attendant-expressjet-airlines-alcohol/.

Knowing these two (2) issues regarding these two (2) women are not the same, doesn't mean there isn't similarities.  At least, not to me.

The Christian woman refused to do part of her job, even though her employer had recently had things change at work, legally.

The Muslim woman refused to do part of her job, even though her employer follows the guidelines that are by law.

Did the same thing happen to each of these women?

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Muslim woman was only removed temporarily from her job.  And, was NOT arrested for doing what she did, even though it was not legal for her to have done what she did.

The Christian woman WAS arrested, for not doing what was legally expected of her.

Sigh...  Be still my heart.

If you cannot see from this, that Christians are being treat badly in USA, there's something wrong with your thinking.

After all, since the Muslim woman broke the law, why wasn't she arrested?

It seems that many governments do not want to go after Muslims.  Yet they will do so, to Christians.

Was it shocking to me about what happened to Kim Davis, with her being arrested?  No.

God warned us in His Word, the Bible, that His children will be persecuted for their faith.  Just as Kim Davis has been.

All who are persecuted will be hated by people.

Just as we read, in Matthew 10:22, "And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved."

While I have not been arrested, I know that I have been hated by some people, for supporting God.  But, like we read in today's Bible verse, those who endureth to the end, shall be saved.

For this, I praise God!  Hallelujah!

On September 8th, 2015, cbc.ca posted an article online entitled, Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis released from Jail.  Here's a link for you to check it out:  http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/kentucky-county-clerk-kim-davis-released-from-jail-1.3219459.

While I am happy that Kim Davis was released from jail after spending five (5) nights in jail, she will still face judgement in the court room, at some point in the future.

My friend, if you are truly God's child, please pray for Kim Davis.

Thank you.  May God bless you.

Until next time...
