We should all be horrified to hear of all the barbaric acts as Muslims behead, burn alive and torture Christians. This type of behavior is called for in their Koran. It should sicken all of us to see this wanton disregard for life. The man holding the position of President of the United States seems more interested in furthering the success of the Muslim extremists than protecting our own citizens being held in overseas prisons.
100 years ago this month was another year of horrors. The Turks forced the Armenians to either become Muslim or die. In some cases, they didn’t even have that option. Some became Muslim, but most were slaughtered. A small percentage escaped.
My grandfather, who was only a 10 year old boy at the time, was able to escape, but the Turks killed most of the rest of his family. His mother also survived, but they were separated in the Arabian desert and found each other many years later in America. As a child, I heard firsthand stories, not realizing that by now all the survivors would be gone.
My great aunt gave birth to a baby girl on “The March” into the desert to die. The Turks took the baby, killed her and forced my aunt to bury her baby in the sand. It makes one wonder how anyone can be so evil. Although she survived, she was never able to bear any more children the rest of her life.
How does a civilization fall so far down that the government would want to exterminate innocent citizens? The purpose of this newsletter is to remind us that the price of freedom is eternal vigilance and God’s grace.
I want to hear your thoughts on this. If you have an opinion, please share it here: .
WHAT YOU CAN DO…
We can all do something. We may engage in different efforts to help, but it is important that we do something.
- We can pray.
- We can write a letter to a prisoner who is being persecuted.
- We can donate supplies to persecuted fellow Christians.
- We can attend a regional conference.
We send a big thank you to all the kind people who have donated to make it possible for us to produce our newsletter and podcast. Because we do not have any other funding stream, your donation will be extremely helpful in our efforts to communicate. Many people do not realize we are a volunteer entity and rely on their help and God’s leading to continue. If you would like to help, please send an email to:
