No pictures for this article.  No quotes from other sources.  Just commentary from the heart.

One week ago yesterday I was having a rough day. People may not believe it, but I take all the Prayer request on our Ministry page to heart.  I sincerely Pray for each and every request.  Sometimes I get so burdened by all the suffering so many are having to endure I just have to step away from it all for a few hours.  Last Wednesday was one of those days.

I decided to go to Lifeway Christian Bookstore to do some "window shopping."  I knew I couldn't really afford to buy anything, but just "rolling" around the store browsing through the Books and Bibles is usually very uplifting to me.  I spent between an hour and a half and two hours in the store.  It was peaceful and uplifting, but I was still unable to let go of the burbened heart.

There is a Kentucky Fried Chicken near that particular Lifeway.  Being a Baptist Preacher I have a weakness for fried chicken.  I usually won't allow myself to spend the money for KFC, but as I said it was a rough day, KFC was close, so....  As I sat in my van eating my chicken, my phone beeped letting me know I had a message.  I started not to answer it until I finished eating, but decided I needed to check it in case it was something important.  It was.

It was from a Preacher friend of mine from another country, for his safety I want say who or where. There was a video attached to the message.  He didn't say what it was about, only that I needed to watch it.  I downloaded the video to my phone and began to watch while eating my chicken.  Just a few seconds into the video I stopped eating.

Since I've been involved in the Ministry God has placed me in, I've recieved many videos like this one.  I've seen video's of Christians being burned alive, beheaded, stoned, hung, shot, beat, and watched forced amputations. I've seen horrible pictures, read horrible first hand accounts from survivors.  Perhaps it was just the mood I was in, but none of them prepared me for this.  I probably watch less than 5% of the video's that are sent to me.  They ALWAYS leave a hole in my heart.  Very seldom do I pass any of the videos or pictures on to others, I fear they would only make people even more afraid to share their Faith with Muslims.  I know Jesus wants us to Preach the Gospel to Muslims. So I usually just don't pass the videos or pictures on.

This video started with a young black man on his knees. One masked Muslim dressed black man stood on either side with one hand on his shoulder, their other hand each held a black "Rambo" style knife.  Behind those 2 men stood several others, in Muslim dress as well, also with their faces covered, holding automatic or semi-automatic rifles.  To the left of the young man on his knees was another man in in Muslim dress, with his face covered reading from the Qur'an.

The young man on his knees did not have his hands tied, yet he didn't attempt to resist or get away.  There was no frantic look on his face, no fear apparent in his eyes.  He just gazed steadily toward the camera.  As the one continued reading from the Qur'an, one of the knife holders began to rub the serrated edge over the mans head, almost as if he was trying to comb the young mans hair. Still nothing from the young man on his knees.  All he had to do to stop this madness was to disavow Jesus and convert back to Islam. He knew very well what was about to happen, yet I couldn't even detect that his breathing had acceleradited.

This young man knew he was only seconds away from dying a horrible, painful death, yet he was totally at peace.  He knew he could stop by simply saying he was wrong, yet he remained silent.  When the man finished reading from the Qur'an, the masked man, on the young mans right side began to saw, not cut, saw at the young mans throat.  The pain MUST have been horrible, yet the young man never screamed, never resisted.  The crowd behind the man with the camera was yelling Allah Akbar as the man sawed.

When the man finally finished sawing, he held the young mans head up high to the chants of Allah Akbar for all to see. Then he placed the young mans head down on the young mans stomach and put his lifeless hands around the head to hold it in place.  Then as an added insult he wiped the blood from his knife onto the young mans lifeless face.  I could still hear the sporadic Allah Akbar in the background as the video ended.

As I said I had been sitting in my van eating fried chicken when I started to watch the video.  Needless to say, I never finished another bite of that chicken.  I had seriously considered taking 3 days to a week off from the internet Ministry to try to get an emotional break.  I felt so guilty.  Here I had been feeling sorry for myself and thinking I needed/deserved a break. I threw the chicken away, drove home, turned the computer on and went to work.

I don't think another day will ever pass that I don't remeber this young man. His Faith was amazing!  I don't think another day will pass that I don't Pray for his family. Reading the Apostle Paul's words have always inspired me, but they take on even more meaning now.  I sent the video out to 6 other Preachers and two Deacons.  Only 2 were able to watch it before it had been scrubbed from the internet.  Liberals and Progressives don't want you seeing the madness that is Sharia.

Please join me in Praying Daily for the end of this Brutality under the excuse of Sharia Law.  Please join me daily in Praying for the family of this young man, and for all Persecuted Christians around the world!

I am Forever in the Service of Jesus Christ,



This has been a very bad year for Persecuted Christians, and it just got worse.  Some of the headlines from the past couple of days.

Islamists claim win in Tunisia's Arab Spring vote

"The first confirmed results show that Ennahda has obtained first place," campaign manager Abdelhamid Jlazzi said outside party headquarters in the center of the Tunisian capital.
As he spoke, a crowd of more than 300 in the street shouted "Allahu Akbar!" or "God is great!" Other people started singing the Tunisian national anthem.
"This is an historic moment," said Zeinab Omri, a young woman in a hijab, or Islamic headscarf, who was outside the Ennahda headquarters when party officials claimed victory.
"No one can doubt this result. This result shows very clearly that the Tunisian people is a people attached to its Islamic identity," she said.
On the fringes of the same rally, stalls sold books by Salafist authors, followers of a strict interpretation of Islam who believe women should be covered up and that the sexes should be segregated in public.

Shariah advances as constitution is rewritten

Sudanese leader setting up Christians for suffering

Sudanese leader Omer Hassan Al-Bashir is moving forward with rewriting the country's constitution to implement Shariah law, according to reports from organizations with links inside the Muslim-dominated nation.

International Christian Concern's North Africa specialist Jonathan Racho says that a Shariah-compliant constitution will mean more suffering for Sudan's remaining Christians.

"This new law (Shariah compliant constitution) is going to affect a significant number of Christians who live in places like Khartoum (the capital city). There are still a significant number of Christians in Sudan," Racho said.

"If Al-Bashir introduces this Shariah law and if he's going to go ahead and adopt an entirely Islamic constitution, Christians and other non-Muslims who live in Sudan will be treated like second-class citizens," Racho said.
"They will be dhimmis and they will not have full rights in the freedom of religion," Racho said.

Island nation cracks down on preaching unofficial Islam, non-Islamic faiths.
Police in the island nation of Maldives held a teacher from India for about 15 days before deporting him on Oct. 14 for having a Bible in his house, a source said.

Shijo Kokkattu, a 30-year-old Catholic and teacher at the Raafainu School in Raa Atoll, had been arrested in late September after police found a Bible and a rosary in his house during a raid, a foreign source in the capital city of Male told Compass by phone.

Charging that Kokkattu was preaching his Christian faith in the Muslim nation, which recently tightened restrictions on preaching and practice of non-Islamic faiths, police took him to another island for interrogation and kept him in custody for more than two weeks, said the source, who requested anonymity.

Malaysian Police Gives 'Defend Islam' Rally Green LightCarolyn Hong-Straits Times Indonesia | October 20, 2011

Kuala Lumpur. Malaysian police have issued a permit for a mass gathering of Muslims this Saturday 'to defend Islam against Christian proselytization', an event politicians and others fear will stoke religious tension in this multiracial country.

The Himpunan Sejuta Umat, or gathering of one million Muslim faithful, is organized by 25 non-governmental organizations, including the Malay supremacy group Perkasa.

It is calling for a new law to punish those who try to convert Muslims.

The rally comes after a controversial raid in August by the Selangor Islamic authorities on a church dinner attended by Muslims. The Sultan of Selangor later said the authorities did find evidence of attempts to convert Muslims but it was insufficient for legal action.

Many Muslims regard apostasy to be one of the gravest sins.

From the U.S.A.

Top Justice Department officials convened a meeting Wednesday where invited Islamist advocates lobbied them for cutbacks in anti-terror funding, changes in agents’ training manuals, additional curbs on investigators and a legal declaration that U.S. citizens’ criticism of Islam constitutes racial discrimination.

The department’s “civil rights lawyers are top of the line — I say this with utter honesty — I know they can come up with a way” to redefine criticism as discrimination, said Sahar Aziz, a female, Egyptian-American lawyer.

“I’d be willing to give a shot at it,” said Aziz, who is a fellow at the Michigan-based Muslim advocacy group, the Institute for Social Policy & Understanding.

The audience of Islamist advocates and department officials included Tom Perez, who heads the department’s division of civil rights.

“We must continue to have the open and honest and critical dialogue that you saw in the robust debate,” Perez responded in an enthusiastic closing speech a few minutes after Aziz made her demands at the event.

“I sat here the entire time, taking notes,” Perez said. “I have some very concrete thoughts … in the aftermath of this.”

The meeting at George Washington University showcased the expanding alliance between American progressives and Islamists, said Andrew McCarthy, a former federal prosecutor in New York.

Progressives “are making these Islamist groups into the [political] representatives of Muslims in the United States,” he told The Daily Caller. That elevation of Islamists to a leadership role sidelines the majority of American Muslims who don’t want Islamist leaders, as well as American Muslims who are female or gay, he said.

McCarthy investigated and prosecuted Egyptian-born Imam Omar Abdel-Rahman, dubbed “the blind sheik,” for urging Muslims to kill New Yorkers. Abdel-Rahman was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1996.

Progressives ally with the Islamic lobby because “they think it will be a political voting bloc that will be reliably Democratic,” said Robert Spencer, an author and expert on Islam.

None of the Islamist advocates of civil rights officials in attendance, including Perez, objected to Aziz’s call for free-speech restrictions.

Sharia law declaration raises concerns in new Libya

The announcement that Islamic sharia law will be the basis of legislation in newly liberated Libya has raised concerns, especially among women, despite Islamists insisting moderation will prevail.

Interim leader Mustafa Abdel Jalil said on Sunday, during his speech to the nation in Benghazi to formally declare the country's liberation from the ousted regime of Moammer Kadhafi, that sharia would be Libya's principal law.

"Any law that violates sharia is null and void legally," he said, citing as an example the law on marriage passed during the slain dictator's 42-year tenure that imposed restrictions on polygamy, which is permitted in Islam.

Italian priest shot dead in North Cotabato

COTABATO, Philippines—An Italian Catholic priest who spent three decades working in the violence-plagued southern Philippines was shot dead inside his church compound on Monday, his superiors said.

Fausto Tentorio was the third member of the Vatican-run Pontifical Institute for Foreign Missions to have been killed since 1985 on Mindanao, a vast island home to Muslim separatists, Al-Qaeda-linked militants and other armed groups.

Indonesia: About '1.8 million people' have terror links

Jakarta, 12 Oct. (AKI) - About 1.8 million of Indonesia's 246 million people have potential links to terrorism, according to the country's anti-terror chief.

"The number is this. More or less 1.8 million people take part in terrorist networks," said Ansyaad Mbai., who heads Indonesia's National Anti-Terrorism Agency, or BNPT, speaking during a panel discussion in Jakarta on Tuesday.

Indonesia, world's most populous Muslim country, is combating Al-Qaeda linked terrorists whose most notorious attack was in Bali in 2002 when 200 people died in an attack by the Jemaah Islamiyah terror group. The country is also fighting a separatist movement in the Aceh region of northern Sumatra.

Muslim Brotherhood Aims for Islamic Egyptian State

Muslim Brotherhood luminary Sobhi Saleh wants Sharia in Egypt claiming it is the "best system" for Muslims and non-Muslims;

Coptic Christian Student Murdered By Classmates for Wearing a Cross

Today the parents of the 17-year-old Christian student Ayman Nabil Labib, broke their silence, confirming that their son was murdered on October 16, in "cold blood because he refused to take off his crucifix as ordered by his Muslim teacher." Nabil Labib, the father, said in a taped video interview with Copts United NGO, that his son had a cross tattooed on his wrist as per Coptic tradition, as well as another cross which he wore under his clothes.

Both parents confirmed that Ayman's classmates, who were present during the assault and whom they met at the hospital and during the funeral, said that while Ayman was in the classroom he was told to cover up his tattooed wrist cross. He refused and defiantly got out the second cross which he wore under his shirt. "The teacher nearly chocked by son and some Muslim students joined in the beating," said his mother.

Top Muslim Declares All Christians ‘Infidels’

To what extent was Egypt’s Maspero massacre, wherein the military literally mowed down Christian Copts protesting the ongoing destruction of their churches, a product of anti-Christian sentiment?
A video of Egypt’s grand mufti,  Sheikh Ali Gomaa (or Gom’a), which began circulating weeks before the massacre, helps elucidate.  While holding that Muslims may coexist with Christians (who, as dhimmis, have rights), Gomaa categorized Christians as kuffar — “infidels” — a word that connotes “enemies,” “evil-doers,” and every bad thing to Muslim ears.
After quoting Quran 5:17, “Infidels are those who declare God is the Christ, [Jesus] son of Mary,” he expounded by saying any association between a human and God (in Arabic, shirk) is the greatest sin: “Whoever thinks the Christ is God, or the Son of God, not symbolically — for we are all sons of God — but attributively, has rejected the faith which God requires for salvation,” thereby becoming an infidel.

Egyptian Sheikh issues fatwa prohibiting votes for Christian, secular candidates

CARIO: Mohammad Amer, a Salafi Sheikh in Damanhur, Egypt, issued a fatwa prohibiting votes for any Christian, secular or liberal candidate, as well as any Muslim candidate who does not pray daily or call for the implementation of Shariah law.

The fatwa also prohibited voting for any former member of the dissolved National Democratic Party (NDP), associated with the regime of deposed President Hosni Mubarak, with the exception of a few “honorable” candidates.

Amer claimed that voting for any such candidate would constitute a grave sin.

Algeria: Christians arrested for proselytism during mass

(ANSAmed) - TUNIS, NOVEMBER 1 - Five men were arrested by Algerian police for proselytism during a mass in a village in the wilaya of El Tarf, according to the website of the Liberté newspaper. The men were arrested in line with measures issued by the general state prosecutor at the court of El Tarf.
As more and more of these countries adapt sharia law, Christians will be in more and more danger.  As Sharia continues to grow the entire world will be in more danger. 
Most non Muslims have no idea what Sharia really is.  To many believe its merely an ancient law and means nothing anymore.  Unfortunatly many muslims strongly disagree.  They sincerely believe Sharia is the law all should live under.  Here are a tiny fraction of some of the Sharia Laws:

On apostates:

  • Someone raised among Muslims who denies the obligatoriness of the prayer, zakat, fasting Ramadan, the pilgrimage, or the unlawfulness of wine and adultery, or denies something else upon which there is scholarly consensus (ijma’, def:b7) and which is necessarily known as being of the religion (N: necessarily known meaning things that any Muslim would know about if asked) thereby becomes an unbeliever (kafir) and is executed for his unbelief (O: if he does not admit he is mistaken and acknowledge the Obligatoriness or unlawfulness of that which there is scholarly consensus upon. As for if he denies the obligatoriness of something there is not consensus upon, then he is not adjudged an unbeliever). f1.3
  • The following are not subject to retaliation: … (3) a Jewish or Christian subject of the Islamic state for killing an apostate from Islam (O: because a subject of the state is under its protection, while killing an apostate from Islam is without consequences); o1.2
  • When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed. o8.1
  • In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representative) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed. o8.2

On jihad:

  • The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o11.4)-which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High, “Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled” (Koran 9.29) o9.8
  • The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim (O: because they are not a people with a Book, nor honored as such, and are not permitted to settle with paying the poll tax (jizya)) o9.9
  • A free male Muslim who has reached puberty and is sane is entitled to the spoils of battle when he has participated in a battle to the end of it. o10.1
  • As for personal booty, anyone who, despite resistance, kills one of the enemy or effectively incapacitates him, risking his own life thereby, is entitled to whatever he can take from the enemy, meaning as much as he can take away with him in the battle, such as a mount, clothes, weaponry, money, or other. o10.2
This is what is being taught in Mosques all over the USA, and all over the world! 


American Politicians must wake up.  They have to stop worrying about being labeled as a racist or bigot and pass ANTI-SHARIA Laws.  The Clergy MUST wake up.  We must begin speaking out about the EVILS of Sharia from the Pulpits.

Christians are dying for Jesus everyday under Sharia.  They are treated as second class citizens.  Imprisoned, tortured, raped, robbed all under the banner of Sharia.  We MUST wake up and stop the spread of this EVIL SCOURGE!

In His Service,
