Blessed Are We

It’s hard to not reflect on the recent news items as it relates to Christians and how we are regarded in the public square. Let me list for you some examples of where non-Christians are trying to define us for their convenience and utility:

  1. Rosie O’Donnell on the View states that “radical Christians are just as dangerous as radical Muslims”.
  2. The Pope is shamed into recalling and recanting a statement about Islam that was made long ago but offered a point of view that offended Muslims.
  3. A new movie is introduced that takes a Christian Church Camp and twists its purpose to resemble a terrorist training camp, titled “Jesus Camp”.
  4. NBC television decides to edit Veggie Tales cartoons so that there is no reference to Jesus, but refuses to edit an upcoming special of Madonna’s that uses the crucifix in an uncomplimentary scene.
  5. Many owners and executives in the National Football League are pressuring players to stop kneeling together after games in their joint prayer sessions after games. This is evidently embarrassing to many people and they want it stopped.
  6. The same bans that exist in schools that make prayers and references to God are slowly creeping into the rest of our society.

Maybe this is just my own sense of what I perceive is happening in our world today, but if you share this same sense, I would like to hear from you about places you see the secular world is trying to silence the voices of Christians.

Matthew 5: 11&12… “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”

Have a great week and keep your prayer time dear and your quiet time with your Bible nearer!
