What happened in Texas on Sunday is more than just sad. We mourn because we lost part of our family, part of the body we share. We grieve because the surviving part of our body in Sutherland is suffering. “We … are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.”1 “If one member … Continue reading We are with our brothers and sisters in Sutherland Springs, Texas
After five wars of genocide, the blood of 3.5 million innocent people cries out from Sudanese soil. The sound of each and every cry may be deafening in heaven, but on earth, it seemingly fell on deaf ears as the United States lifted economic sanctions on Sudan last week. When Sudan’s current president Oman al-Bashir … Continue reading Heaven Grieves as Trade Resumes
I marvel that the Most High came to earth and touched the untouchables. It didn’t matter if they were untouchable because of their culture – Samaritans, vocation – tax collectors, disease – leprosy or their sin – prostitutes. Jesus, being full of compassion, touched them. The spirit of the world draws us to the lives … Continue reading Touching the Untouchable
I’m writing to you with a heavy heart on behalf of our Christian brothers and sisters in Nigeria who are facing starvation and need our help. In Nigeria, 1.8 million people (many of them Christians) have been driven from their homes because of Islamic violence. The Christians were even driven from the government displacement camps … Continue reading Christians in Nigeria Starving and Need Our Help!
Last month I sounded the alarm about Prime Minister Modi’s Hindutva (fascist) background and agenda. Since then, I’ve been asked, “why did the modern Indian democracy elect Modi to be their prime minister?” The official party line attributes Modi’s election victory to his reputation for economic success. It is true that when Modi was Chief … Continue reading Part 4: Really … Mein Kampf is Best-Seller in India?
I was invited to attend the World Summit in Defense of Christians that was hosted by the Billy Graham Evangelical Association. We met in Washington DC last week to address the ongoing atrocities committed against Christ’s followers around the globe. The Summit convened more than 600 people from 130 countries, including church leaders, advocates and … Continue reading World Summit In Defense Of Christians
The Hindutva founding fathers distrusted and were hostile towards non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and especially Christian charities because they considered them to be “anti-national”. So, it’s not surprising that since becoming prime minister, Modi’s administration has revoked the funding licenses for almost 10,000 non-profits and charities that conflict with his Hindutva agenda. Did you notice that … Continue reading Part 3: Really … Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” is a Best-Seller in India?
In my last post, I explained that persecution has increased dramatically since Narendra Modi was elected prime minister three years ago. Undoubtedly, it’s not a coincidence that Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are avowed Hindu nationalist. Hindu nationalist ascribe to the Hindutva ideology which seeks to create pure Hindu culture, race, and nation … Continue reading Part 2: Really … Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” is a Best-Seller in India?
Brother Hassan is a former Muslim sheikh who came to faith in Jesus in 2003. Shortly after his conversion, his enraged family and neighbors beat him. Later that same year, his Muslim wife left him and he was fired from his job as a teacher at an Islamic school. Hassan lives in a predominantly Muslim village of … Continue reading Eastern Uganda: Faith That Wins The Prize
I was quite surprised last week when I learned that Mein Kampf is a best seller in India – the world’s largest democracy. In hindsight, I shouldn’t have been too surprised. In the last three years, India has leaped in ranking from the 28th worst to the 15th worst country for severe Christian persecution, according … Continue reading Part 1: Really … Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” is a Best-Seller in India?
