H.B. A! & In a Nutshell...

Before I begin today's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I'd like to wish my granddaughter, A... Happy Birthday!  I'm looking forward to seeing you and spending time with you!  Happy Birthday!

Hopefully, you read LwL last Friday, May 4th, 2018.  If you didn't, I would suggest you do, now... before you read the rest of this entry.

What I'm sharing with you today, is the other half of the article I wrote about 7 years ago that I shared with you last week.

You'll know that I wrote about an article and an issue I believe is important to everyone.  It is not easily accessible to all, through the computerized on-line version of The Windsor Star, even though the article was in the printed version.

Why is this happening? 

The only thing I can think of is that people need to understand that anyone who speaks truth about Islamic Terrorists is open to be considered enemies of Allah, as the article in question calls all infidels (unbelievers).  Of course, all unbelievers of Islam are considered to be infidels, as well.

Meaning that everyone who speaks out regarding Islamic terrorists and their intentions, are open to retribution by these people.

If you click on the link on last week's entry, then click on the story link, it will bring you to another link, where you have to click on yet another link before you actually find the article to read it. 

Yes, eventually you will find the article.  But, only if you know the article exists and are actually looking to retrieve it; like I did, because I knew it had been published in the paper edition, after reading it.  Otherwise, it is obscure.

In any case, here is the article that was printed in The Windsor Star, Saturday March 5th, 2011 on page A11, even if it is not on The Windsor Star's personal site:

http://www.monstersandcritics.com/news/europe/news/article_1623698.php/Chechen-terrorist-leader-calls-for-holy-war-against-Russia

Talk about being obscure.

I realize that there are some who feel the need to speak up, but are afraid to do so.  I also recognize that there can be repercussions for those who speak up.  Again, if this is the reason people are afraid to speak out, it is a sad day in Canada.

After all, we in Canada have religious freedom.  We also have freedom of the press.  We citizens have the right to think about and speak out about issues that are important.

(I added this remark today:  Now, I must let you know that even though we had freedom here in Canada, our freedom has been partially taken away.)

I believe terrorism is important news.  Eventually, it will affect every one of us, whether we live in Canada, USA or elsewhere in the world, for it is spreading like wildfire.

In my opinion, we all need to be watchful.  We need to be speaking out about these issues, for they affect our very laws and governing powers that be. 

While we Bible-believing Christians are to look up, for our redemption draweth nigh and while we know God is truly in control, we also know that we have been commanded to plant those seeds for Christ, to do the work God commanded us to do.  Preach the gospel to all the creatures of the world.  So, many can come to Christ.

We need to speak truth, so that others can see the dangers that lie ahead.  So others can realize that they are not entities unto themselves.  So others can realize they need a Saviour.  And, there is only One, who can save.  And, that is Jesus.

If you don't know Jesus as your personal Saviour, I encourage you to come to Christ, today.  It's simple. 

Just trust/believe that Jesus is who God said He is, the son of God; His son.  That Jesus came to earth as a person, who died and was resurrected for the sin of the whole world, of all who will believe; for your sin and mine.

That's it in a nutshell.  "...believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved..." Acts 16:31


Until next time...
