It is so awesome the way God works. I have been working on another article about Islamic terror attacks on Christians. I had planned to finish and post it today. So much for my plans! I received two emails overnight that changed my plans. I’ve Preached enough Sermons to know when a message starts tugging at your heart, you better go with it instead of your plan. When I read those two emails and watched the 8 minute video on one of them I knew the article on Islamic Terror Attacks on Christians would have to wait for another day.
I subscribe to among other’s The Voice of the Martyrs, ICC The Persecuted Church, and The Secret Believers. I read stories that touch my heart, that break my heart every day. Christians are persecuted so badly in so many different places around the world. From other sources, I receive videos that are so violent, so gross, of atrocities that happen to Christians that would put Hollywood horror movie directors to shame. Christians being burned alive, beheaded stoned etc.. because they refuse to deny Jesus Christ and convert to Islam.
I don’t recommend most people watch any of those video’s, they leave a hole in your heart that only God can heal. I watch very few of the ones that are sent to me. Sometimes when I get tired of fighting the fight I’ll watch one to remind me of why I do what I do. Sometimes if I realize I’m not sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with Muslims often enough I’ll watch one to remind me of how desperate and urgent is the need for doing everything we can to introduce Muslims to the REAL JESUS CHRIST of The Holy Bible, not Isa of the Qur’an!!
After years of reading so many thousands of articles about persecuted Christians, all the video’s I’ve watched I guess maybe I’ve hardened a little. Don’t let that deceive you. They still hurt. They still break my heart, I still Pray daily for them. Its just not often that one article, picture video, etc… stays with me all day. These two have. I couldn’t even write this article for a long time. I had to Pray and ask God to temper my words before beginning to write. I had to get to a point where I could write out of love, not anger. I was searching thru my Bible for something to ease my heart. Something that would help turn what I read and watched into something good. I was led to this:
Matthew 19:13-15New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
The Little Children and Jesus13 Then little children were brought to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked those who brought them. 14 Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” 15 When he had placed his hands on them, he went on from there.
Luke 10:20-22New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
20 However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”
21 At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure. 22 “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.”
The two emails today weren’t real graphic. They are about the most innocent of all, children. I hope Frontpage Magazine doesn’t get upset with me for posting their article in its entirety but, here you are.

“The test of the morality of a society,” wrote theologian and anti-Nazi activist Dietrich Bonhoeffer, “is what it does for its children.” Or more significantly, what it does to them. For example, just when you think the Taliban couldn’t set the bar of subhumanity any lower, reporter Michael Yon, embedded with American troops in Afghanistan,
First, the Taliban kidnapped the son of a man who refused to turn over a police vehicle to them, and tortured the 8-year-old before strangling him to death (not that this is especially atypical of the Taliban; in early June
Daniel Greenfield at the Sultan Knish blog has compiled a heartbreaking, unbearable catalog of murders of Israeli children and pregnant women at the hands of Muslim butchers who are often honored for their despicable crimes against Jews – including the unconscionable massacre of the Fogel family by two Palestinian monsters this March, which was greeted with jubilation in Gaza. He describes the enemy’s ruthless rationale behind their targeting of the future generation: Force Intelligence Information from debriefs of Guantanamo detainees show that brutality against children is part of a strategy by Islamic terrorist groups to strike fear into their opponents: “Radical Islamists are using their religion to brainwash young people to commit terrorist acts and to justify the murder of innocent children.” In typically terse language, the reports reveal that these attacks on children are deliberate psychological operations against non-believers:
This is confirmed by Documents uncovered from the Defense Intelligence Agency earlier this year (coincidentally on the heels of the Fogel family butchery). These Joint Task
TEGs attack schools and buses to maximize psychological effect. Attacks against schools and buses are used because they are easy targets…
TEGs consider attacks on children legitimate. TEGs believe that attacks on children are a religious good deed and the attackers will go to heaven. TEGs encourage their members to launch attacks on children. A fatwa, from a respected cleric, is sought prior to targeting children, but strikes occur even without authorization.
It’s almost impossible to conceive of such heartlessness. Who, even in the most perverse depths of the imagination, could envision intentionally harming a child or twisting that trusting innocence into murderous hatred? Only the truly sick among us, or the truly evil. The jihadists are fond of proclaiming that they love death more than we love life, and this is the essential difference between them and us. We value life, creation, love. They, in the black grip of their death cult, value death, destruction, and hatred. We are not engaged in a Clash of Civilizations. We are engaged in a Clash of Civilization and Barbarism. And for our children’s sake – all the children’s sake – this is a conflict we cannot afford to lose.

Muslim Rapes Christian Toddler for Failure to Convert to Islam
Posted By Frontpagemag.com On August 3, 2011 @ 12:00 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage
Neeha and her family lived in Islamabad, Pakistan just a few years ago. When Neeha’s father, a Christian, refused to convert to Islam his 2 year old daughter was kidnapped and mercilessly raped in a field, leaving her body horribly disfigured:
Here is the link:
We must Pray for these Children and their families!
We must confront the EVIL that is Islam with The Word of God!
Please join me in Prayer for Neeha and her family!
I Pray those two articles and one video will touch you as they have me. I Pray they will inspire every one who reads them to get involved. The more people we have Praying for these children the better! The more Christians we have “planting seeds” in the Muslim community the better.
Blessings to you all!
