A modern-day Holocaust is unfolding
Apr. 20, 2015 – 1:52 – There’s been another purported mass killing of Christians in the Middle East. It’s only a matter of time before the Islamic extremist savages target American churches.
It is reported that ISIS has released a video showing the killing of Ethiopian Christians in Libya. Todd Starnes at Fox News warns we could be seeing “the beginning of a modern day Holocaust”.
In this latest horror unfolding in the Middle East it is hard to feel anything but anger and a desire for revenge, retribution an eye for an eye. What if the very thing that is meant for evil, is used for by God for good? I had heard several years ago of missionaries, surrounded by secrecy, being trained to go into Muslim nations to share the gospel. With no expectation of returning, martyrs of a different kind. As I watched the video below I was reminded of those who have probably already given their lives to share the Good News. A perspective I have not considered, “If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.” Matthew 16:25
