Move Along, Nothing to See Here

Another reality too unpleasant to admit.

Jihad in Jersey City

Yet, the media's focus hasn't been the horror of this kind of centuries-old anti-Christian persecution apparently coming to America. Instead, there has been a concerted effort, it seems, to downplay this gruesome slaughter as some kind of anomaly, to search desperately for motives other than religious hatred – in effect, to ignore the kind of oppression that Christians and Jews in the Middle East have been experiencing since Islam became dominant in that part of the world more than 1,300 years ago.

We'll just ignore the unpleasant truth and before long, everyday life in America will become more like this:

The Last Ten Minutes

And we'll make excuses for it then, too. There have already been some airline flights like it. That's terror. It doesn't have to happen all the time, it doesn't take alot of resources.

I will set My face against you, and you shall be defeated by your enemies. Those who hate you shall reign over you, and you shall flee when no one pursues you. Leviticus 26:17

You should read that whole chapter. It has alot more meaning today than most people realize. God does not change, and if we behave in a similar fashion to ancient Israel, we can expect expect God to act in a similar way towards us. We have a chance, we are being given time to turn. He has left us alone because we demanded it, but He is warning us now of what will come if we do not turn and keep His commandments.

These things you have done, and I kept silent; You thought that I was altogether like you; But I will rebuke you, And set them in order before your eyes. Psalms 50:21

May God help us to understand.
