The shepherds only preach the feel-good messages – never the issues concerning us Christians. The congregation talks about the issues, but are afraid to speak out. They say God will take care of it.
We, as Christians, are being persecuted in this country. And as thousands are being murdered overseas, we just sit quietly like church mice. In the city of Mosul, Iraq, in the early part of this year, 45,000 Christians were there; now they are all but nonexistent. Many were murdered; others are hiding in the mountains. Mosul has been a Christian city for 1,700 years.
I’ll tell you what God wants: He wants Christians to stand up and put on the “armor of God,” and stand and fight for what is right. If we stand together, we can’t be defeated.
God’s people in Israel are standing up to the ones who want to destroy them, and we all should be backing them in every way we can. Jesus said that if you deny him, he will deny you to his Father.
