Iraq's beleaguered Christians make final stand on the Mosul frontline
Captain Firaz Jacob knows he may well be mounting a last stand at the frontiers of the Christian settlement of Bartella on the outskirts of Mosul.

Less than a mile down the road are the jihadists of Isis, the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, and the portly, middle-aged Mr Jacob is aware that his home-grown militia are outnumbered.

“I stand here waiting for my destiny,” he said, as he stood this week by the last check-point on the road to Mosul and the black flags waiting in the desert.

“We will stay here despite everything,” he announced. “All these armed groups we have seen, but nevertheless we will remain. We love our Christian way of life, we love our churches and we love our community.” ...

Bush. Too bad there's not an emoticon that shows a knee jerking when it gets touched by the word Obama.

lest we judge for what we have sought for our own sordid gain and agendas...

those who have died in the faith, according to Revelations are crying out for God's justice.

those who are left standing, may not be the victors.

Bush, naturally. But it is doubtful we get enough oil from Irag to ever pay the cost of being there. We are importing more from Columbia, which should tell us something about the latest threat of increasing gasoline prices due to instability in Iraq.

Carl, few or none are Baptists, most of the Mesopotamian churches, look to Rome for leadership. If they aren't Catholic, they have Catholicy or Orthodox practices. Many people have become martyrs for the wrong reason -- Muhammadan suicide bombers are the most obvious example. No, "nominal" is the right definition to place before the name of these people. Definition for a minimalist Christian, What are the “five solas,” and what do they mean?

However, they and people of other religions in Middle East have the right to live peaceably in their countries and practice the religion of their choice. Anyway, if Syria is an example if these people don't flee, they will soon be dead.

I seriously doubt if most of these are Christians in name only; the nominal left along time ago. Confessors and not professors are more willing to remain behind at the risk of becoming martyrs for Christ. I do not wish this on the U.S. but it would be interesting to see how many Christians would still attend church services if an ISIS b brigade was near their town or county.

Yes, this is a reminder to remember the Christians that are in need of our prayers the world over especially in places that are so dangerous for them. May God in His mercy watch over you and protect you and bring His love and peace to you.In the name of our precious Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen

CHRISTIANS IN IRAQ and all other Muslim countries - my warning to you.

GET OUT WHILE YOU STILL CAN WITH YOUR LIFE. Don't become a useless martyr at the hands of bloodlust filthy genocidal Muslims who have never changed for over 1000 years of jihad. You will die if you don't act. Come to paraguay, you can get residency here and get farmland inexpensively to live a new life.

No matter these are in the most part nominal Christians, it has been pointed out many times I have pointed out, Iraq's war on Christians. It is the failure of at least a couple of USA administrations in not demanding and enforcing religious freedom, with armed forces paid with the sale of Iraqi oil, until they got tired of that and started to defending people of all faiths in that country on their own. It's not only our prayers they meed, they needed a steady drizzle of American bullets comeing down on them. It never ceases to amaze me there are Christians think we can make peace with Satan's forces and don't realize the Inadequacy of Islam and islam: The Religion of Peace--isn't.

Brothers: Please pray for our brothers in Bartella and other Christian locals in Iraq before arguing back and forth to score your theological points.
