It's not something that's nice. But, I believe it is something you need to know about.
Here is a link for an article by foxnews.com that is entitled, Texas teen was beaten, had hot cooking oil poured on her after refusing arranged marriage: police: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/03/25/texas-teen-was-beaten-had-hot-cooking-oil-poured-on-her-after-refusing-arranged-marriage-police.html.
Hopefully, you clicked on the link and read the article. In case you couldn't, I will share with entirely all that was stated (I copied/pasted):
Parents of a Texas high school student who was reported missing in late January had abused their daughter after she refused an arranged marriage, leading her to run away from home until she was found in mid-March, police said.
Maarib Al Hishmawi, 16, was reported missing on Jan. 30 after she was last seen leaving Taft High School in Bexar County. She was located in mid-March when she was taken in by an organization that cared for her after she ran away, KSAT reported.
Authorities on Friday said Al Hishmawi’s parents — Abdulah Fahmi Al Hishmawi, 34, and Hamdiyah Saha Al Hishmawi, 33 — had allegedly beaten their daughter with a broomstick and poured hot cooking oil on her when she refused to marry a man in another city. The parents reportedly agreed to the arranged marriage in exchange for $20,000.
"This young lady, at various times over that time period was subjected to some pretty bad abuse because she didn't want to be married to this person," Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said on Friday, according to KSAT.
"Several times it was reported to us that this young lady was abused with hot cooking oil being thrown on her body. She was beat with broomsticks,” Salazar added. “At least one point, she was choked almost to the point of unconsciousness.”
The parents face charges of continuous violence against a family member. They were taken into custody on Friday.
Police said the man who was arranged to be married to Al Hishmawi may also be charged in the case.
I praise God that the teenager who was abused, was found. And, protected by the USA, Texas police! Plus, that the parents are facing charges of continuous violence against a family member, as the article states.
After all, not only could that teenager have been abused, and physically hurt, she could have been murdered by her parents, since Sharia law allows parents to do this to their children.
Why do I think this?
Well, if you know me, or if you've read LwL in the past, then you would know that I have learned about Islam.
Yes, I've taken courses. Plus, I've known people who converted from Islam, to Christianity. they have confirmed that I have learned about Islam. And, what their god allows them to do.
Their god... is not the true, real God.
I believe this means that anyone/everyone who is not yet Christian, needs to become Christian, by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Just as we read, in John 14:6, "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
Amen! Jesus said... I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Anyone who has not gained salvation, has not gained everlasting life. And, will not spend eternity in Heaven, with God.
Instead, anyone who has not gained salvation and everlasting life, will spend eternity in Hell... separated from God... with NO chance of escape.
I have gained salvation.
If you haven't yet, then please come to Christ, today.
Tomorrow, may be too late.
Until next time...
