…And the Killing Goes on…


“There has been far too little interest shown and there are no   UN              peacekeepers to help provide at least some semblance of protection. So the people are just being mowed down,” Smith said in an interview on C-SPAN’s “Newsmakers” program to air on Sunday.

“We have another potential genocide — certainly mass killing — because of who they are, their ethnicity and their faith,” representative Chris Smith said.

This is horrendous news. Persecution continues to rear it’s diabolical head across the globe like a ravenous, fiery cancer.  Obviously, the world has not learned any lessons from the Nazi dictatorship in German, the Jewish genocide or the killings of Christians  in the African and far Eastern nations.

So what is God’s people, the church doing about it? Ah…persecution is good? I can’t help to groan. “why is murder, especially to brutal slaughter of civilians and Christian acceptable? Maybe it is a badge of honor to missionaries, but I see it as blatant, immoral assault against humanity. Call a spade a spade.

I can’t help but be deeply concerned and angry that the world  yet once again  ignores what is happening in Sudan on the premise that those people are being persecuted for  the Gospel of Christ. So when does the barbarian slaughter of babies, the feeble elderly and nursing mother not become  a human rights violation issue.

We know that Christ told us there would be persecution, but does that give us the right to shrug our shoulder in non-challant apathy? God’s  people should be the first on the offense against evil. Thou shalt not kill.  So…it’s okay for them to kill us but we are to lay down before our oppressors. Queen Esther did not agree to lay down as the king’s decree went out that all Jews should be killed. Esther cared about the fate of her people and di something about it.

Just because we are Christians and hated for His sake does not mean we have to accept being hacked to pieces by the infidel.

Let God’s people join together as Queen Esther did to oppose the forces of evil across the globe.  Let us join, my friends in Prayer and fasting to turn the hearts of these assassins to our Lord.

Amen.
