Once again, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be sharing some information with you that I received by e-mail.
The e-mail message was from the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ). I decided to share the message with you, so I decided to copy/paste the message so you can read it. Here it is:
A Christian pastor's fate hangs in the balance. Today we're taking action.
Christian Pastor Hassan languishes in a Sudanese prison - targeted in an anti-Christian crackdown.
He was mercilessly sentenced to 12 years of harsh imprisonment on false charges for crimes against the state - all because he is a Christian living out his faith.
He ministered to someone in need at a conference outside of Sudan, yet Sudan's Islamic National Intelligence Security Service (NISS) targeted him.
We've helped free numerous Christians in Sudan - including other pastors caught up in this blatant case of persecution. Yet Pastor Hassan still awaits his appeal.
Today we're sending a critical legal letter to the U.N. office dedicated to the deplorable human rights situation in Sudan - demanding it take action for Pastor Hassan's freedom.
Time is running short. Pastor Hassan needs you now more than ever.
Sign Our Petition: Free Christian Pastor Hassan Today.
ACLJ Chief Counsel
Thinking about what is happening to Pastor Hassan, is not easy... for anyone. At least, in my opinion.
However, I believe we truly need to help people. Especially, when they are being hurt. Like Pastor Hassan is.
Thinking of this, brought to mind, Jeremiah 22:3, "Thus saith the Lord; Execute ye judgment and righteousness, and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor: and do no wrong, do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, nor the widow, neither shed innocent blood in this place."
Yes, just as our Lord said, we need to execute judgement and righteousness, and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor... and do no wrong, do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, nor the widow, neither shed innocent blood in this place.
Let us help deliver Pastor Hassan out of prison, where he's being held. Let's do this, without hurting anyone. After all, he is a member of our Christian church family.
How can you do this?
Well, you can do whatever you can for Pastor Hassan. Speak up/out. And, do whatever you feel he needs help with.
But, there is something simple for you to do.
Sign the petition.
I did. And hopefully, you will also.
If so, we'll be blessed.
Until next time...

To be honest, I feel that what is happening to Pastor Hassan, is so awful. So, I've signed the petition.
