The Coming Persecution

Something is in the air so to speak when people are allowed to breathe the word ‘Christian’ with all things that are wrong with this world.  This is what is happening today.  The Charlottesville, Virginia event is the latest where this has occurred.  Media interviews with experts  sympathetic to Muslims and other minority peoples in the USA put the name of  ‘Christian’ and ‘White Supremacist’ together in their analysis of this tragic event.  The name of ‘Christian’ is being linked with KKK actions and fascist and Neo-Nazi ideologies associated with the rally that took place in Charlottesville.

Why aren’t our Christian leaders speaking out and complaining about this more publicly?  Christians are not being defended in these matters.  Our leaders are very quiet (hoping for the best maybe).  I’m glad that the Apostle Paul didn’t stay silent when Christians were being persecuted.   He was doing a lot to encourage believers and fight the forces who were being oppressive and tyrannical toward them.  He was writing letters and having them sent from church to church to be read.  He was travelling about visiting the churches, praying for them, and informing and helping Christians to stand in those difficult times.  He was debating with those who opposed Christianity.  He was often in the thick of the fight getting beaten up, whipped, and battered about by authorities.  He was slandered and ridiculed by wicked people inside and outside of churches.

Our leaders in North America are apparently doing nothing about the persecution Christians may be facing today.  This is something to consider and take seriously.  Why aren’t they doing something, anything and why not?  Persecution will increase and it does not go away when it is not confronted appropriately and quickly.   We need leaders to speak up for us.  If our current leaders are too afraid or they see nothing wrong with whats happening then we need to look elsewhere for proper Christian leadership.   We need to leave these churches.   They have become something other than the churches of God.  This is more and more evident as time goes by and current events take place.

Culture Assault on Christian Tradition

The West is being swept up in a cultural revolution that will change the face of Europe and North America.  Some say we will barely recognize these continents in 10 to 15 years.  Changes are occurring very fast.  Christianity is being assaulted and efforts are being made to remove this religion from peoples’ memories.  Demographics are changing in Europe to Islam followers rather than Christian.  Populations of adherents to Islam are taking over democracies in Europe because of their numbers.  Democracy favors the majority.  Our Christian leaders are not defending the faith in this culture war.  It is not being talked about in churches.  Many Christians are oblivious to what is happening right now to our nation and our religion.

Muslims are becoming more radical in their demands toward others.  Sharia law is their law of choice.  Women and minorities do not have rights under this law.  Christians and other religious peoples will be asked to convert to Islam or pay a severe penalty.  We already see this happening in Egypt and in other Muslim nations.

Freedom of speech is fast disappearing.  Protections that Christians have had in the past in the West have been removed through recent amendments and changes made to human rights laws.  We are led to believe by our officials that our rights and protections have not changed, but this is untrue.  Dramatic changes in every area of life and in our government have been taking place.  We are facing extreme uncertainty whether our nations can even continue or if we will be overcome by a sweeping movement to global governance and life as we know it today in the West will cease to exist anymore.
