Injustice was highlighted in the Times of Israel and other major online news websites two weeks ago, with the rape of a Jewish special needs teenager. While this pierces the heart around the world, it seems that our church in this country has done little to help children like her. With all of the fear attached to helping refugees escaping such heinous crimes, we are forgetting our future as a people and as Christians.
Evil is what you call it. Unjustified before a God of justice is what you call it.
Pray for peace!
We all know that Islam is a religion of hate.
They attack women and children who refuse to cooperate with the laws of Mohammed, justifying abuse as some sort of discipline. We have all seen it on the news, decapitating men and children, raping women, hanging and mutilating children all for their idea of what true religion is. No one reports what happens to the special needs children in these populations, but as is shown in the rape of this young woman, their fate is the same.
It is as if they think they have license. It is as if they think they are God.
But, what are we as the Church doing about it?
Christianity has extremists too. Although they are not carrying out such heinous acts, they are using their covering of morality to beat people over the heads with their moral sticks.
They tell women and children they should put up with abuse and become martyrs. They shove out those who found mercy and grace at the foot of the cross for their sins that there is no justice or mercy for them. They refuse to feed and clothe the homeless and the widows and orphans, except on rare occasions when someone had connections who needed our assistance. It is not at all what Christ called us to. It is an injustice against God.
Our Church sickness carries out into the world.
Because we justify such injustices in the building, we fail to defend our faith in the community.
When we say we want to follow God, protect our children from transgender bathrooms and the like, then we are accused of expressing hate. When we attempt to protect our homes, our marriages and our families, then we become suspect to women’s activists, and those who seek out political correctness that everyone must live the same way. In our modern climate, even the unborn are suspect.
The corrupt have agendas against Israel. They have agendas to shatter God’s idea of what a marriage is. They have agendas to force us to push out the Christian foundation of our country, particularly to accept Islam as an equal religion to Christianity. This has been the foundation of the antichrist in our country.
It reeks injustice and the Body of Christ has been challenged to put Him first.
When immorality rules, the most vulnerable suffer.
And the men must rise. We need them to.
The morality the Muslims are teaching their youth shows in the way they mistreat women and children. When hate is taught, it yields hate, which makes the cycle continue on.
The attacks on the morality of our families through corrupt fathers causes great suffering. Mothers are left scrambling to piece their children’s lives back together when the Church encourages abuse to flourish in families.
The real men of God must rise to set a Godly example for their children and help push out the sexually immoral men from the Body of Christ. They must remain courageous in face of sexual sin, as it seeks to over run our churches.
Silence perpetuates abuse and injustice.
While the election of our country’s president is quite a weighty matter right now in the news, the rape of a special needs woman needs to send a cry of protest from around the world. 200 children are used as a shield and little is spoken.
Silence remains a symptom of the acceptance of abuse as merely a war crime. And then life goes on around it.
We think that just because we cannot control it, or it already happened, that we can just stay silent. Yet, this is just what the enemy wants.
Our silence, the silence of the Body of Christ, is what strengthens the Muslim world and our society. We must pray and speak out, but not with the clanging of cymbals, with the succinct note of a trumpet. We must speak with the Sword of the Spirit, seasoned with just the right amount of salt.
While we have made great strides in fighting the war against Islamic extremists, we still must speak for the casualties of war. I am speaking about the women, children and elderly of all cultures who cannot even defend themselves and are targets of maniacal minds.
Mohammed is no prophet and was a deranged, psychotic man. But, neither him, nor his religion is any match for a mighty God.
No, it isn’t our job to remain silent in the face of atrocity, but to speak out for those who cannot and trust God to do the rest.
Then, #Letuspray for those who are being victimized and ask the Lord how we can help them.
