What I need to discuss today, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), is very important.
Yesterday, I received this e-mail from American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ):
Christians are being crucified, enslaved, and beheaded.
ISIS - the Islamic State - is exterminating Christians. Radical Islamic mobs are burning Christians alive. Christian communities are decimated. It's unbearable.
Who will stand up for persecuted Christians?
It's our sacred duty to protect them. We're engaged in an unparalleled global advocacy campaign.
We've activated our offices in the Middle East, Pakistan, Africa, and at the U.N. to aggressively battle for the persecuted Church.
At the ACLJ, we've helped free Christians from death sentences for their faith in Sudan and Iran.
We've helped pastors escape imprisonment in Sudan. We've saved girls from a form of sex slavery in Kenya. We've defended Christians in Pakistan from jihadist charges.
Now we're aggressively advocating in Congress and with world leaders for persecuted Christians. We need them to hear from you today.
Stop ISIS's jihadist genocide against Christians.
Sign Our Petition: Defend Persecuted Christians from Genocide.
ACLJ Chief Counsel
Just as you read, help is needed.
ACLJ is American. I know... I'm not American.
However, being Canadian, I also realize that help is truly needed.
Yes, it may not be me who needs help. But, it truly is brothers and sisters in Christ, who needs help. After all, they are truly church family.
Helping others is very important.
Just as we read, in Philippians 2:4, " Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others."
When I look at my own problems/trials in life, I realize life hasn't been easy. At least, not for me.
But, when I read and hear about problems that fellow Christians are experiencing in various parts of the world, I feel sick in my heart.
For some are truly suffering, especially in the Middle East.
My friend, please... do whatever you can to help. And, pray.
If you do, I know God will bless you.
Until next time...
