Contending For the Faith
Egyptian Islamists Murder Young Christian, After Dragging Her From Car
April 2, 2014 — CNSNews.com reports: “Eyewitnesses have given a harrowing account of the murder in Cairo of a young Coptic Christian woman, hauled out of her car and beaten and stabbed to death by a Muslim mob, apparently targeted because of a cross hanging from her rear-view mirror.
The incident occurred in the Cairo suburb of Ain Shams after mosque prayer services on Friday, when police clashed with Muslim Brotherhood supporters angered by army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s decision to run for president.
An eyewitness appearing on ‘90 minutes,’ a program on the al-Mehwar satellite network, said 25-year-old Mary Sameh George was attacked in her car near a church, where she planned to deliver medicine to an ill and elderly woman.
Protestors climbed onto her car, collapsing the roof, then hauled her from the vehicle, beating and mauling her – to the extent, he said, that portions of her scalp were torn off. She was stabbed multiple times, her throat was slit and when she was dead, the mob torched her car…” (“Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied. Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him” – Jude 1:2, 3, 4, 10, 14, and 15.

Muslim Youth in Nigeria Attack School, Burn Church over Test Question
April 2, 2014 — Breitbart.com reports: “On March 31st Muslim youth, angered over an ‘examination question,’ set fire to a Catholic church and attacked a school in Katsina state in northern Nigeria.
The Associated Press reports that many in the town were outraged over the ‘examination question’ which they considered ‘an insult to the Prophet Muhammad.’ The matter was ‘reported to district authorities,’ who took no action.
After the district authorities did nothing, the youth took the matter into their own hands…”
Christians’ throats slit in pagan slaughterhouse
March 19, 2014 — WND.com reports: “After exposing videos of ‘ritual human sacrifices’ of Christians by Muslims, a former Palestinian Liberation Organization member-turned-Christian has discovered a new set of shocking videos that show human slaughterhouses in which non-Muslims are executed.
The videos, posted by Walid Shoebat, and his son, Theodore Shoebat, are horrific, showing heads neatly lined up against a wall and bodies suspended by their feet in a room.
Also shown is the testimony of a witness who was threatened with being ‘sacrificed.’
‘I have never seen something like this,’ Shoebat told WND. ‘I have been investigating this story for the past two weeks. The story is probably the most horrific I have ever [done]. It proves with footage actual systematic [sl]aughterhouses of human beings, including Christians in Syria.’…”
Sawan Masih: Pakistani Christian gets death penalty for blasphemy
March 28, 2014 — BBC News reports: “A Pakistani Christian man has been sentenced to death for blasphemy, in a case which sparked fierce rioting in the eastern city of Lahore last March.
Sawan Masih was convicted of using derogatory remarks against the Prophet Mohammed in a row with a Muslim friend.
Hundreds of Muslims attacked the city’s Christian Joseph colony, torching homes, when the allegations surfaced.
Allegations of blasphemy against Islam are taken very seriously in Pakistan, where 97% of the population are Muslim.
Several recent cases have prompted international concern about the application of blasphemy laws.
Sawan Masih’s lawyer said a judge announced the verdict during a hearing at the jail where the trial has been held, amid fears for his client’s safety if he attended court.
The 26-year-old Masih, who is a father of three, has consistently maintained his innocence during the year-long trial.
He argues the real reason for the blasphemy allegation was a property dispute between him and his friend…” (Sharia Law promoted by Islam puts to death four groups of people:
- Daughters who commit pre-marital sex.
- Apostates – their own brothers and sisters of their faith who mock Muhammad, the Koran and Sharia Law.
- Infidels – all other religious believers.
This and the next headline picture these bloody terrorists who slaughter the above four groups in the name of God.
Judgment is coming – see preceding report again.)
Islamic group urges supporters to kill Christians
April 5, 2014 — WND.com reports: “The violent jihadist group aiming to put Nigeria under Islamic law is calling on its supporters to go to churches and kill Christians.
Boko Haram, in a video, also warns police to get out of the way because the group’s drive for Islamic law, or Shariah, will not be stopped.
Islam analyst Theodore Shoebat noted the jihadists sing an ominous song in the video that is ‘purely in accordance with Islamic tenets.’
They sing: ‘We are working for Allah and must bring Shariah to existence; we are committed to protecting Muslims from being annihilated by infidels. We are going to kill them. We will enter churches and slaughter Christians and barracks. We are calling on all Muslims to come out and fight jihad. If you joke, these infidels will annihilate Muslims. You see how they are killing our women and children.
In what analysts call one of Boko Haram’s most brazen video statements, the jihadists bragged that they’ve displayed their skill in northern Nigeria and against the ‘infidels’ in the northern Plateau and Kaduna states…”
Franklin Graham: Some Administration Officials Are ‘Anti-Christ’
March 27, 2014 — CNSNews.com reports: “Some of the people working in the Obama administration and in the White House are trying to ‘completely secularize our military’ and are ‘hostile to Christians,’ to the point that they ‘are anti-Christ in what they say and in what they do,’ said Christian evangelist Franklin Graham, the son of world-renowned preacher Rev. Billy Graham.
Franklin Graham made his comments during a Mar. 24 interview with Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council, which published an updated report on religious persecution in the U.S. armed forces this month.
During the interview on Washington Watch Weekly, Perkins asked Graham, ‘I would have to believe you’re also tracking, in fact I know you’re tracking because you were a part of it – when you were scheduled to speak at the Pentagon a few years ago they disinvited you – are you concerned about this intense religious hostility that we see manifesting in our nation’s military?’
Graham said, ‘‘No question. And my son just got back from his seventh [military] tour this weekend. So, I love the military. There has been huge pressure on the chaplains in our military – and our chaplains have been a wonderful thing for the military. But there is a move to get rid of the chaplains in our country, and to completely secularize our military. Actually, they are hostile to Christians…” (The following describes this administration’s anti-Christ’s: “Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father” – I John 2:18 – 24.)
Air Force: Christians’ Religious Speech Not Legally Protected Right
March 17, 2014 — Breitbart.com reports: “Christians in the U.S. military are being told they must forfeit their First Amendment rights. Bible verses are being erased from cadets’ personal dorm-room white boards, and military lawyers claim that legal protections for religion only pertain to matters such as clothing and growing beards but do not extend to any religious expression such as talking about one’s faith or posting a Bible verse.
Last year Breitbart News broke the story of a campaign by anti-Christian extremists to suppress traditional Christian expression within the U.S. military. There were conflicting stories regarding the possible court martial of service members who share the gospel of Jesus Christ and confirmed reports of military chaplains being officially censored, as well as Bibles temporarily banned from the Walter Reed military hospital…
This latest incident occurred when a cadet (whose identity we are not disclosing) posted Galatians 2:20 on his personal whiteboard, posted outside his living quarters in a residential dormitory. That verse reads, ‘I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.’
According to media reports, several people at the academy contacted Mikey Weinstein and the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, the radical anti-Christian group that had been in communication with the Defense Department under President Obama regarding adopting new policies for religious expression in the military. Weinstein claimed that he called the Air Force Academy to complain about the Bible verse and further claims that two hours and nine minutes later, the verse was gone…” (The Air Force just had two Muslim chaplains installed who are from the greatest movement of death for infidels – the Muslim Brotherhood. God forgive you Mr. President.)
Iran: Evangelical Christians Are a ‘Threat to National Security’
March 22, 2014 — Breitbart.com reports: “The Iranian government views evangelical Christians as a threat to national security and has imprisoned some of them for up to 8 years, according to a UN report. The report on the human rights situation in Iran also says that things have not improved for the country’s religious minorities since the election of President Hassan Rouhani last year.
Presenting his report to the UN Human Rights Council, Dr Ahmed Shaheed, Special Rapporteur on human rights in Iran, said that President Rouhani had yet to deliver on promises to end discriminatory practices and grant minority citizens more rights.
The report features a list of known religious prisoners in Iran, including their sentences and reasons for conviction.
Among Christians imprisoned are Rasoul Abdollahi, serving three years for ‘collusion against the government and evangelism’, Farshid Fathi, serving six years for ‘propaganda against the system… Undermining national security…’ and Jamshid Jabari, accused of ‘insulting Islam’.
Numerous Christians are accused of being members of groups that ‘aim to disrupt national security’ and spread ‘propaganda against the system’…” (The above is satanic garbage. Genuine Christianity taught by Jesus follows his precious words recorded in Luke 6:27 – 31: “…I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also. Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.”)
‘EU is Ignoring a Holocaust Against Christians,’ Say Protesters
March 23, 2014 — Israel National News reports: “Protesters gathered Sunday afternoon outside the embassy of the European Union in Tel Aviv, demanding that the EU pay at least as much attention to the suffering of Christians in Arab countries as to the purported ‘suffering’ of the Palestinians.
About 150 members of the Christian community in Israel decided to raise their voices and criticize what they called the ‘hypocrisy’ of the EU, which ‘has a double standard for Israel, criticizing every little thing that doesn’t fit in with their leftist, liberal point of view, while ignoring the torture and decimation Christians routinely undergo in Syria, Egypt, and elsewhere in the Arab world,’ protesters said. ‘It is a clear case of ethnic cleansing, and the Christian world has remained deafly silent.’
Father Gabriel Nadaf, a pro-Israel Greek Orthodox priest from Nazareth, was present at the protest, and called for an end to the attacks on Christians. ‘We thank the State of Israel for providing a warm home to Christians,’ he said.
A spokesperson for the group, Sha’adi Mur’an Halul, compared the situation of Christians in the Muslim world with that of Jews in pre-World War II Europe. ‘We saw how the silence of the world brought about the Holocaust in which 6 million Jews were killed,’ he said.
‘Israel lets us worship freely, and to live a normal life. We decided to speak up and tell the European governments and the human rights groups in Israel and around the world – do something, do not repeat the mistakes of the past,’ he said. ‘We get a lot of news about what is happening to Christians in the Middle East, and they are begging us to help them. They envy our being citizens of Israel, and wish that they, too, could live in the Jewish state,’ Halul said…” (Israel shows love to Christians remembering the brutality of Hitler’s death squads against them. Soon Islamic terrorist groups like Hamas, Hezbollah, and others may be slaughtering God’s children by the thousands – Revelation 6:9; 20:4.)
