I think it's sad that nearly EVERYONE knows and is saddened by the death of Robin Williams but so few know of or even care about the hundreds of Iraqi Christian children, mothers, and fathers are being murdered for their love for Christ.
I have seen multiple posts about Robin Williams. I haven't seen one post about ISIS - this is so sad. I feel like no one cares about what's going on in the world - priorities are out of order for most.
There is one picture circulating around the web of a 10 year old Muslim boy holding up a head of a Iraqi Christian child, the father was saying, "That's my boy!" - multiple Iraqi children are being beheaded, mothers being raped, killed, or FORCED to be a Muslim wife AKA convert. Fathers are being hung. It's convert or die. Thousands have fled to nearby cities or mountains and children are dying from a lack of food and water.
Unpleasant? Sure, but it's life and it's happening right now and just because it's unpleasant doesn't mean you should turn a blind eye.
No skin off Obamas back - our Muslim president deals with this world crisis with two rounds of golf while on vacation.
Thanking the Lord today for the privilege to study His word without fear of physical persecution.
For my true brothers and sisters in Christ - those who believe through faith alone in Christ alone, and not by good works - just remember James 5:16 ..The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.
They need our prayers.
