Prayer Request & More...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), there is something I feel I need to let you know about.  And, something I feel you need to do.

What is it?

Just so you know, I received an e-mail again, from the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ).  I'll share it with you, so you can know what is happening.  Here it is:

Lynn,

Urgent: American Pastor Andrew Brunson is in immense danger.

Turkey has just charged him with "Christianization." A 62-page indictment - a diatribe against Christianity and Israel - claims the Christian pastor living out his Christian faith, including through "humanitarian aid, education, and training," is terrorism. If convicted, he faces 35 years in a Turkish prison - essentially a life sentence for the 50-year-old American pastor.

His trial starts on April 16th. His situation is dire. Time is of the essence.

Christianity is on trial. Christianization isn't terrorism. It's an absolute outrage.

Pastor Andrew peacefully served the people of Turkey as a Christian pastor - following the law without issue - for 23 years.

We cannot allow Turkey - our supposed NATO ally - to sentence a U.S. citizen to the rest of his life behind bars for being a Christian and living out his faith.

We've mobilized on Capitol Hill and at the White House. Now we're urging the U.N. Working Group on Arbitrary Detention to intervene for Pastor Andrew.

As his trail begins in just weeks, he needs YOU now more than ever.

Sign Our NEW Petition to the U.N.: Free Pastor Andrew Now.

Jay Sekulow
ACLJ Chief Counsel

Sigh...

As I'm sure you are aware, in the past, I signed petitions for various reasons.  But, I also signed this petition, since it is a new petition.  Please... sign this petition, even if you've signed other petitions.  I believe God will bless you.

To me, what is being done to Pastor Andrew Brunson is evil.  Of course, what is done to other Christians who have been imprisoned by Muslims is also evil.

Why?

Christianity is not a form of terrorism.

Christianity is not evil.

But, Muslims who are imprisoning Pastor Andrew Brunson are speaking evil of Christianity, just as you read about in the e-mail I received.

That has made me think of 1 Peter 3:16, "Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ."

Amen!  Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.

Christianity is a way of obtaining everlasting life! 

However, when the day of judgement happens, anyone who is not Christian, and has not obtained salvation and everlasting life, who has falsely accused Christianity of being evil, will pay the price for their sin.

I feel I need to ask you to pray with me.

Please, pray that Pastor Andrew Brunson, and any other fellow Christians who have been imprisoned by Muslims, will be released as soon as possible... while they are alive, healthy and able to be back with their family and friends.

Please, pray that Muslims... and any other unbelievers of Christianity, will realize they need to gain salvation and everlasting life, by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.

If you pray with me, I believe God will bless you.

Thank you.  Blessings.


Until next time...
