As I checked the news this morning, on a Christian web-site, I noticed that another church building in east Texas was burned yesterday. This makes eleven churches in the state that have gone up in flames since New Year’s Day. Most have been Baptist churches. Clearly, someone hates churches!
Then, on the same web page I noticed another article headline that said–“Two Street Preachers Gunned Down in Florida Two Weeks Ago—Media Still Silent”. I took the time to read the entire sad story and was amazed that no national news organization has reported the vicious murder of these two young innocent preachers. I agree with what one man said,”If two Muslims, or two feminists, or two homosexuals were murdered, wouldn’t the media be all over it? These were two fine young black Christian men shot by another black man for their Christian faith, yet the media does not seem to care.”
Well, I decided that was enough bad news for one day, so I clicked to another site and, you guessed it, more bad news! Just yesterday a gunman opened fire in a California church, wounding two teenagers. The gunman and two other men, wearing hooded sweatshirts, walked up and down the aisles, when he starts shooting, wounding a 14-year-old boy and a 19-year-old man.
As a Christian I expect to be hated by the world–Jesus said it would happen, but it is amazing that so few people seem to care. It would be easy to get bitter, but that’s exactly what satan would want. Instead, we need to pray for perpetrators of these crimes and the victims. Every student of the Bible knows that things are going to get much worse. We need to prepare ourselves for it. But it would sure be nice if the liberal media at least acted as though they were concerned. The truth is that the whole scam regarding the “Hate crimes” law is nothing more that an effort to silence Christians and promote evil.THINK ABOUT IT!
