It’s The Last Days: Still Don’t Believe Christianity Is Under Attack?

Removing-the-cross        In China, the Sudan, Iraq, etc.––around the world, Christians suffer attacks, death, displacement from centuries old-Christian villages, burning churches . . . while many ‘believers’ in the U.S. yawn, play politics, and attend church picnics.

Between staid services and campaign rallies, are American Christians aware that Communists countries and radical Muslim groups destroy churches, muffle Christian voices, and even slay Christians? As political activists, where are their outcries over the deaths of Christians and destruction of their homes and churches.

Andrew Jacobs of The New York Times writes in ‘China Moves Against 2 Churches in Campaign Against Christianity’: “In another sign of the authorities’ efforts to contain one of China’s fastest-growing religions, a government demolition campaign against public symbols of the Christian faith has toppled crosses at two more churches in the coastal province of Zhejiang.

“On Friday, congregants at the Wenling Church. . . faced off with as many as 4,000 police officers but ultimately failed to prevent the removal of two crosses from atop their building. . . as many as 40 people were detained during the standoff . . . [A]uthorities in Zhejiang Province have issued demolition notices to more than 100 churches, saying their structures violated zoning regulations.”

And The Times’ Didi Kirsten Tatlow writes in ‘Christian Pastor Sentenced to 12 Years in Chinese Prison’, Pastor Zhang Shaojie now sits in jail for the ‘crime’ of  “gathering a crowd (i.e. a church) to disrupt social order.”

In Russia, rather than to fight genuine Christianity, alive in that nation for hundreds of years, killer Vladimir Putin puts one of his fellow KGB secret service agents, Vladimir Mikhailovich Gundyaye, or Patriarch Krill, at the head of the Russian Orthodox Church. Krill claims Putin’s reign is “a miracle of God.”

In ‘ISIS Torches 1800-Year-Old Mosul Church After Expelling Christians,’ Adam Chandler writes: “ISIS, which recently rebranded as the Islamic State, has solidified its control over Iraq’s second-largest city by imposing Sharia law and expelling Christians who won’t convert to Islam. The end of last month marked the first time a mass wasn’t held in the city in more than 1600 years.”

Christian families were told to meet ISIS’s demands: “Convert to Islam, pay an anachronistic Islamic tax for non-Muslims, leave Mosul, or be killed. . . the order [was soon limited to] convert, leave, or die.” The last 1500 Mosul families were robbed at ISIS checkpoints and ISIS set fire to an 1800-year-old church.

However, more subtle satanic tactics reign in U.S. churches: Many churches are headed by unChristian pastors church-love-of-moneywho, commit unseen moral decadence. Some churches serve as a cover for criminal activities. And too many American churches succumb to the worst corruption of all––love of money, love of race, of ethnic culture––preference for any force that drives out the love of God and of man.

Yea, in Bible inspired writing, Christ yells to such churches:  “Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent (Revelation 3: 15 – 22).”
