Persecuted Christian? Don't expect these pastors to speak up
About half of all the pastors in America's churches today do not want to tell their congregations that there are forces in the world that persecute Christians for their beliefs, because it's a "downer," according to the results of a startling new poll.
The Barna Research Associates survey, commissioned by Open Doors USA, says a significant majority of American Christians, some three out of four, want to hear about the persecuted church.
But the same study showed that 52 percent of America's pastors don't want to talk about persecution and have no plans to talk about it....
if we began to remember the persecuted Christians we would have to:
admit that it is happening in western nations
admit western darwin involvement in the escalation of persecution in the ME
yet another sign that many are going apostate from the faith into a facsist, carnal faux religion masked as followers of the cross and resurrection. -it tickles the ears of the flesh to say you will not be tried, you will not go through tribulation. Unfortunately, that is not the message of scripture. Time to repent, church, and to look after your own again. The fact is that many western "Christians" couldn't care less about their fellow believers in prisons, etc. "Am I my brother's keeper?" They are under the NWO delusions of more strong arming the nations such as not caring that the Bth party of Irq was a political place of refuge for Christians, and when outside forces came in, threw out all members of that party---that their own were throwing Chr's to the streets and perseuction. Once again, western inv. created persecution, now bishop in news says, "where have they all gone?" (Christians mostly gone, dead, or refugees). Under Sad-not sec class citizens, now lost protections and open season and new adm ties to Iran. The sheep are being lied to and they like it.
