Persecution...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I want to share you something.

Here is what I received on an e-mail a while back... from American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) (I copied/pasted):

Lynn,
Innocent Christians around the world are being targeted and hunted down because of their faith.
Violent persecution against Christians is spreading around the globe, from Africa to Pakistan to China. Even in India, where our client Pastor Bryan Nerren - who just appeared at the White House with President Trump - was unjustly held for his faith, Christians are being harassed, beaten, and forced to flee their homes.
Defenseless Christians are running out of time. At the current rate, many won't make it to 2021.
Our work does NOT stop. We're literally fighting for their lives.
Our crucial MIDNIGHT Matching Challenge Deadline is just HOURS AWAY. We need you to help us defend dying Christians. Help put us over the top.
Jordan Sekulow
ACLJ Executive Director

And... here is the ACLJ e-mail I received concerniung what you just read (I copied/pasted):

We're just hours from our urgent Midnight Deadline to defend persecuted and dying Christians.

We warned you. Christians around the world are being targeted and hunted down because of their faith in God.

Violent Hindus in India are harassing and abusing Christians, forcing them to renounce their faith or run for their lives.

Christians in Pakistan are living under a shroud of unprompted violence, murder, or charges of blasphemy for any little action, which, under Pakistan's archaic laws, carries a death sentence.

Over 1,200 innocent Christians were brutally murdered in Nigeria in just the first six months of 2020. And that number continues to rapidly increase. Many believers won't see 2021.

How many more have to die? You should be OUTRAGED. WE HAVE TO ACT. We cannot allow the Gospel to be buried in the graves of persecuted Christians.

We just delivered FIVE critical written submissions to the U.N., urging world leaders to protect persecuted Christians and bring the violent perpetrators to justice.

All believers deserve the right to worship without fear of attack.

As we aggressively advocate for Christians facing persecution and death, we need YOU. Lives are at stake. MIDNIGHT tonight is our Matching Challenge DEADLINE.

Your TAX-DEDUCTIBLE gift will be DOUBLED, dollar-for-dollar. $25 becomes $50; $50 becomes $100 to save dying Christians.

To me, it was amazing receiving both messages on that one e-mail!

Especially... since it mentioned about persecution.

Thinking about that, made me think about  2 Timothy 3:12, "Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.".

Amen!  Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

It touches my heart that people are being persecuted.... and that ACLJ works hard to help Christians.

If you are able to help ACLJ... please... do it.

And pray... that ACLJ will be able to do what they feel they need to do.

Thank you!

May God bless you!


Until next time...
