Every day in many countries people face persecution and even death for their faith in Jesus Christ. It is often ignored by the U.N., and the media. It goes unreported for the most parts. Right now a Chinese “dissadent” is seeking asylum in the U.S. and away from the persecution and detainment that he faces daily in his home country. The reason I put dissdent in quotation marks, because that is how they keep referring to him in the press. In fact, he is a Christian, and a member of a home church in China. China is a Communist country that has basically ruled Christianity as a crime…and the teaching from the Bible a crime. The citizens can get a liscense for a home church as long as they teach what the government wants them to…true Christianity is not one of those things…the Bible is not one of those things. So they imprisoned him for this and speaking up against it. But in the media we can’t say he is a Chinese Christian Activist, because our media and the world do not want it to be known that Christians are being persecuted for their faith, or that they are being martyred for their faith daily.
This is happening all over the world…yes, even in the U.S.A.! Here is a link to a video of a woman in Pakistan who has been sentenced to death for professing her Christian faith. I’m posting it because I want people to be aware, especially here in America, this is where we are headed if we don’t stand up for our faith and what is right. To be silent is to allow this persecution and the oppression of Christianity. To speak up is to grasp the power of our Risen Savior and stand with him for what is right. What is right in this case…to stand up for these fellow Christians and demand that the oppression of the Christian faith stops now!!! So pray for these souls, demand that the truth be told about their situations, and if necessary stand with them in their fight in whatever way possible! Just click on “God Bless You” to see the video.
