Vice President Pence Remarks to Persecuted Christians Summit Vice President Mike Pence spoke at a summit on persecuted Christians hosted by the Billy Graham Evangelical Association. He was introduced by Franklin Graham. He said ISIS is guilty of genocide of Christians.
I hope you watched/listened to the video.
If you did, you'll know that Vice President Mike Pence said many things. Hopefully, I will have written properly what was said by Vice President Mike Pence:
President Trump sees these crimes for what they are... vile acts of persecution, animated by hatred... hatred for the gospel of Christ. And, so too, does the President know those who perpetrated the crimes. They are the embodiment of evil in our time. He calls them by name... Radical Islamic Terrorists.
Vice President Mike Pence said... he believes ISIS is guilty of nothing short of genocide against people of the Christian faith, and it is time the world called it by name.
Vice President Mike Pence told us... in Syria, the Christian population has plummeted from one and a quarter (meaning 1.25) million to only 500,000 in just the past six (6) years.
He also told us that... in Iraq, followers of Christ had fallen by 80% in the past decade and a half (meaning 15 years) due to the violence and extremism, and acts against Christian communities.
Vice President Mike Pence said... President Trump rightly said that not long ago, that of the Christian church, nobody has been treated worse in the Middle East. He's made it clear that America will stand by followers of Christ in this hour of need.
Vice President Mike Pence also said... the President knows that terrorists will not stop... until we stop them.... and under President Donald Trump, we will stop them.
Vice President Mike Pence, said... persevere in prayer for those who are in the informed, who are in this fight. Carry them (meaning armed forces) in your prayers.
Vice President Mike Pence, spoke about how he and his wife have a bible verse hung up at home. The verse is Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV), " For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Amen... He knows the plans He has for us, to prosper us and not to harm us, plans to give us hope and a future.
For this, I praise Him!
I also am thankful for the American President Donald Trump, and the American Vice President Mike Pence.
They are standing for the American citizens.
They are standing for Christians, even though Vice President Mike Pence made it clear that they are also standing for any/all other religions that are being affected, in addition to Christianity.
And, mostly, they are standing for Christ.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
