Heavenly Father has commanded me to introduce a document written by a wonderfully enlightened man. This document tells of the trials and tribulations of all Christians in the world today.
In a world where Jews have all the money, atheists control political power, and Muslims are just here, can't a Christian catch a break? Honestly, the Christian faith is persecuted all over the globe...and for what? All we tried to do was save souls and tell people that unless they convert they are going to hell. Why us?
Recently, there was a news story about our misgivings written by Thomas Horn. I would like to pick out some of my favorite points and then I will link to the article.
More Christians died for their faith in the twentieth century than at any other time in history, says Christian Solidarity International. Global reports indicate that over 150,000 Christians were martyred last year, chiefly outside of the United States. However, statistics are changing: persecution of Christians is on the increase in the United States.
This paragraph really gets my heart racing. If persecution is on the rise in this country, then where can we hide? Certainly not in the Middle East! We tried to bring them the light during the crusades and all they did was persecute and kill us!
Even a casual observance of the facts reveals growing isolation of Christians as a people group, especially school age believers. Faculty and peer efforts to convince public school children that America was not founded on Christian ideals, and that our forefathers actually wanted a secular society, permeates public school interaction. History revisionists labor to eliminate any and all contradictory historical evidence from public school curriculum, and mockingly stereotype Christians as unenlightened fringe.
Saying that this country's founders preferred secularism to Christianity just rattles my bones! Yes, everyone in this country has freedom of religion...as long as it’s Christianity! You can choose which type of Christianity, but let’s not get carried away and choose some foolish religion like Judaism! For crying out loud people! The Jews missed their own messiah! Who would follow blindness like that?
Censoring the Christian model and denigrating biblical values has resulted in a generation where every day in the United States:
• 437 children are arrested for drinking or drunk driving
• 211 children are arrested for drug abuse
• 1,629 children are in adult jails
• 30 children are wounded by guns
• 10 children are killed by guns
• 135,000 children bring a gun to school
Social scientists claim this generation's inability to define absolutes, and a growing pattern of anti-Christian behavior, may ultimately result in the collapse of the American superstructure, as situation ethics, AIDS and other forms of sexually transmitted diseases, the redefining of the family unit, and other abandonments of biblical standards of morality come to their dangerous and natural conclusion.
I find these statistics amazing! They represent direct evidence of what anti-Christian sentiment will do to society. Let's face it, these statistics are not explained because there are simply more people in the United States, and therefore, a proportionally more amount of crime! These statistics indicate the world needs Christians to hold everything together. We aren't trying to be self important here, but without our poor persecuted presence, the world would literally go to hell in a hand basket!
There are many more good points in this article, but the main focus is this: If you get rid of us, who will judge you and tell you how to live your lives? Without us, who will persecute the Gays for persecuting us? Who will judge the atheists and tell them they are going to hell? Who is going to stand up to the money hungry Jews tell them they are completely wrong? Who will invade the Muslims to spread democracy and good wholesome Christian values in the Middle East? Who will ignore Africa, and exploit their resources for our own non-politically motivated gain?
The world needs us Christians to look after the heathens who obviously don't know the first thing about heaven or how to get there. I was left with another disturbing detail from this article. This trend of Christian persecution closely resembles the Jewish persecution in WWII. We had better be weary saints, I fear the latter days are upon us!
