Jesus Is God Says John


The point of the Gospel of John is to demonstrate that Jesus is God so that the reader of the gospel would trust his soul into the care of this Jesus.  Folks who cannot see the divinity of Jesus in the gospel of John have not yet understood the gospel.  In fact, the reality of...

Christians in Egypt Attacked by Army


The Assyrian International News Agency offers the latest update on the case of Christians in Egypt.  According to their news report, the Egyptian army feels free to lash out at Christians.  From the story, Lawyer Hany Ramsis, one of the organizers of the sit-in who was present at the time of the attack, told Coptic...

Japan Update on Christian Relief


The Apostle Paul writes in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 a very simple command to Christians, “Pray without ceasing.”  The attitude of prayer is one that characterizes the believer, even though—to many people—the exercise appears futile if not outright naïve.  Yet, prayer may, in fact, be the most important and most effective thing we can do.  Especially,...

Where Peaceful Muslims Stand


I don’t understand the outrage against Representative Peter King.  He is asking whether there is a problem with Islamic terror within the population of Muslims in America.  The sensible nature of his inquiry is on display in the shootings at Ft. Hood and in the attempted bombing of Times Square and in the attempted bombing... Continue Reading →

Persecution in Ethiopia


Earlier today, I posted a blog about our Ethiopian adoption.  In that blog, I noted that one of the factors of our adopting from Ethiopia was the fact that the children suffered there in a way they did not suffer in the Philippines.  Sadly, two new incidents out of Africa demonstrate the point all too...

Christian Killed in Pakistan


You might remember that as the drama of Said Musa was unfolding, I pointed out that part of the difficulty facing the Afghan government was the threat of an uprising among the masses of Muslims who would be outraged by leaders unwilling to execute the death penalty against those who supposedly blaspheme the prophet Mohammad...

A Letter from Shoaib


Though Shoaib's letter is not as powerful as the letter we posted from Said Musa last week, there is an urgency about this letter.  It is clear from the letter that Shoaib is appealing to the Afghan Government based on its own constitution.  He is appealing to the government for justice, which is what the...

See the People


Yad Vashem, the Jewish museum of the Holocaust, has published a short video which chronicles the fate of thousands of Jews at Auschwitz.  The video doesn’t take long to watch, and it doesn’t contain any gory photos of the unspeakable horrors which happened in that ungodly place. It is merely a page-by-page perusal of a... Continue Reading →

Said Free but Shoaib in Danger


In a wonderful sign of Christian unity, thousands of Christians took action on behalf of Said Musa, an imprisoned Christian facing death in Afghanistan for converting to Christianity.  Said Musa HAS BEEN FREED from prison and is now safely out of the country. But Said Musa was not alone.  Another Christian—Shoaib Assadullah—is facing the same... Continue Reading →

Why Said Musa Really Went to Jail


The news is still positive concerning Said Musa. We should remember that his help has come from above, just as Paul's help came to him through the prayers of the saints (2 Corinthians 1:8-11). International Christian Concern has a good piece concerning Said Musa's case from an American political perspective.  There are other well-done news... Continue Reading →

China One Child Tragedy


I know the story of Xiao (pronounced “Sha-ow”) is not “news” right now, considering that it happened last fall, but, still, the tragedy of China’s one-child policy is brought out in such starkly human terms that it is hard to ignore. It is a sad story.  Xiao Ai Ying and her husband were expecting their... Continue Reading →
