Once again, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'm passing along to you an e-mail I received.
It was from Jordon Sekulow, from the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ). I copied/pasted it for you to read. Here it is:
ISIS – the Islamic State – is a jihadist army.
It has declared war on liberty, freedom, and Christianity.
One by one, ISIS executed innocent civilians in Paris. Christians in the Middle East have been facing this barbarity on a daily basis. One by one, ISIS is beheading Christian men. It is enslaving Christian women. It is crucifying Christian children.
One by one, it is trying to exterminate Christians. It’s jihadist genocide.
We must protect Christians in the Middle East.
We’ve mobilized our global offices – including in the region – in a multipronged strategy to protect Christians.
Over 200,000 people have already taken action with us. We’re taking your signatures to Congress and world leaders as we aggressively advocate for the persecuted Church.
We’ve exposed the threat. Now, world leaders are beginning to take action against ISIS.
Make an impact. Help save lives.
Sign Our Petition: Defend Persecuted Christians from Genocide.
My friend, I feel I've been treated badly by some people for speaking up/out regarding the sinfulness that Islam is doing, almost worldwide. Even though it will become worse, and worse, and worse.
But, our brothers and sisters in Christ, are suffering much more than me. Especially those brothers and sisters in Christ who are living in the Middle East... and who are being attacked, kidnapped, raped and/or sold into sex slavery, imprisoned for being Christian, or murdered.
Yes, they are suffering much more persecution than me, and possibly you. Especially, since some Christians never speak up/out or do work that God would have them do.
Thinking of this brought to mind, 2 Timothy 3:12, "Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution."
If you believe God's Word, you'll understand and accept that all who live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
But, I praise God, that we/they all... will be cared for by our Lord, who truly loves us.
Until next time...
