Dear Editor,

 

Some say Christians in America are not persecuted. Compared to other countries that’s true. We are not yet beheaded, tortured, starved for our faith. However, Christians in America suffered bashing for years. The Judeo-Christian element targeted for years still is. A perfect example of persecution is the Oregon tragedy. Students were murdered because they were Christians. Grieving parents can find comfort, be proud their children didn’t deny Christ, hallelujah! How many adults would have? They demonstrated the ultimate loyalty expected of all whose Lord and Savior Christ is. What the devil meant for evil, God meant for good.

Too bad some don’t understand God allowed this, warning all to be ready to meet their maker. Why? Because He greatly loves mankind, not willing any should perish to experience everlasting torment in Hell where the soul never dies. That’s why many are busy about the Father’s business boldly proclaiming the Gospel. They don’t want anybody going to Hell. When the most important issue, spending eternity in Heaven or Hell, is settled, we’ll not fear evil people taking innocent lives.

Americans beware. There’s no guarantee ISIS cells, who are already here, won’t come alive, torment and behead us, too.

God bless us all as only He can. Maranatha.
