Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I sometimes copy/paste e-mail messages I received. Today, I'll be doing that.
Like in the past, I received e-mail from American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ).
I believe this group is a true blessing. While it is an American group, they are doing anything/everything they can to help Christians around the world, who are being persecuted. And, all of us, who are not American are allowed to assist them.
Here's the e-mail I received a few days ago:
Men boiled in vats of tar. Kids cut in half. Missionaries crucified.
The Islamic State (ISIS) is spreading its unthinkable horror. But we can take action to stop it.
ISIS and its jihadist armies have massacred over 33,000 people. It has decimated 82% of the Christian population of Iraq. Two-thirds of Syrian Christians have been slaughtered or forced to flee.
America has acknowledged this "genocide against Christians," but now it must act. The entire world is legally obligated to protect these Christians.
We're aggressively expanding our massive legal advocacy effort in defense of Christians facing genocide. We've filed a legal demand with the State Department that could force it to act. We're preparing a letter to the presidential candidates to put them on record.
And in four days, we're sending a critical legal letter to the U.N. Genocide Office demanding action to 1) stop the genocide and 2) protect Christians.
Take urgent action with us today.
Sign Our Petition: Stop the Genocide. Protect Christians.
ACLJ Chief Counsel
Unfortunately, some people I know either in real life, or on Facebook (FB), don't believe that Christians are suffering persecution. It seems that some, don't really care. Even though some... DO! Like me.
Genocide is a form of persecution.
During WW2, it was known that Jewish people suffered persecution.
This was true. Even though today, many Muslims are fighting historical groups to remove any education about the genocide that happened, at that time.
In our world today, it is Christians who are suffering persecution.
Is this shocking to me? Not really.
After all, God told us what would happen to us, in 2 Timothy 3:12, "Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution."
Yes, all that will live godly in Christ Jesus... shall suffer persecution. Just as God told us in His Word, the Bible.
During WW2, all those who fought to stop the Jewish genocide from happening, worked hard. And, many gave their lives.
Today, I'm not asking you to go and fight, physically. I'm asking you to click on the link, and sign the ACLJ petition to stop the genocide and protect Christians.
I am thanking you in advance.
May God bless you for doing this.
Until next time...
