The Persecuted

4 I said, “Have mercy on me, Lord;
    heal me, for I have sinned against you.”
5 My enemies say of me in malice,
    “When will he die and his name perish?”
6 When one of them comes to see me,
    he speaks falsely, while his heart gathers slander;
    then he goes out and spreads it around. Psalm 41:4-6

One of the greatest enemies to the Christian and Judaism faiths around the world is Islam. I’ve heard reports of actual cruelty against Christians in Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Kenya, Sudan, and South Sudan to name a few. Christian women and children are being slaughtered and the media for the most part ignores it. It’s time we speak up on their behalf. If we don’t speak up, nobody will.

The http://www.worldwatchlist.us has some good resources on this persecution as well as Voice of the Martyrs. Now is the time for all of us to act even in a small way. Search for persecution and you will come to any number of good sites that highlight the tragedies and the subsequent silence.
