Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be discussing something.
It may be something you don't really want to hear about. But, I'll be discussing it, because I believe everyone needs to hear about it.
A couple of months ago, a Facebook (FB) friend posted a video that I felt needed to be seen by everyone. Yes... everyone!
The video was by Marcus Rogers and is entitled: So BRAVE! SO BOLD! Here's a link for it, so if you are on FB, please click on it, and watch it: https://www.facebook.com/marcus.rogers.75/videos/1932763796741380/. However, even if you are not on FB, you may be able to click on this link, and watch the video. Please, do it... if you can.
Just so you know, I tried to locate that video on YouTube. But, I couldn't find it.
Hopefully, you watched the video. It's truly amazing, I hope you watched the entire video!
If you did, then you'll know that Marcus Rogers was preaching on a street in England.
Yes, he had the right to do so. Just as the police confirmed.
Why did the police speak with him and confirm his freedom of right to preach?
There was some people listening to him, who you will have seen... came up to him and complained.
Why is this shocking to me?
Well, not just because someone did what those young women did. However, I've never... ever... ever... in the past, seen anyone do this, when Muslims speak on a street!
Not just in England, like on that video. But, also in USA, when they've used streets to kneel down and use, like in New York City. And, also like France, where the same has been done, in Paris.
And, now... as you've probably read here on LwL in the past, our Canadian government and the German government has done what they can to remove our freedom of speech.
Amen! After all...
NO ONE has spoken up to try and stop Muslims from using streets for the purposes they plan for.
At least... no one that I'm aware of!
Yet, it was done to a Christian pastor... Marcus Rogers. Just as you would have seen, on that video.
Even though Marcus Rogers was persecuted in a way that didn't end his life, made me think about how blessed he'll be, because of what happened to him.
Thinking of this, made me think of Matthew 5:10, "Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
Amen! Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Yes, Marcus Rogers was persecuted. But, so are many other fellow Christians.
Some fellow Christians are being persecuted in much worse ways. Some become imprisoned, abused physically, and/or are murdered.
Even so, each of us Christians will face persecution.
But, we will all be blessed by God.
Until next time...
