“…And the people said nothing”.

There is a war going on – a conflict between radical Islam vs. everyone else.

I’m not speaking exclusively about the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. I’m specifically speaking of the REAL war on Christianity that is being waged in countries around the globe.

While the pimps here in America are being used by the devil to distract us into “naming and claiming”“sowing a seed to reap a harvest”, and “submitting to their spiritual fatherhood”, this is what’s happening in China – the home of the 2008 Olympic Games:

CHINA: CHRISTIAN MISTREATED IN PRISON FOR ‘INSULTING’ MUSLIMS

Guards, Islamic inmates bullying Liu Huiwen for distributing gospel leaflet.

BANGKOK, March 18 (Compass Direct News) – Liu Huiwen, a Chinese Christian sentenced to 18 months imprisonment last November for distributing a gospel leaflet to Muslims in Gansu province, is suffering mistreatment in a Muslim-majority prison, local sources told Compass.

After a recent prison visit (allowed only twice a month), Liu’s wife Miao Hui Lian said that he was limping badly and looked very thin. Liu, unable to speak openly, told his wife that the prison was a “very bad place” and that he was being “bullied constantly.”

When Liu’s wife attempted to travel to Beijing to report the suspected abuse, police warned her to stay at home and make no complaint.

She is under heavy police surveillance, a Compass source confirmed.

After his wife’s recent prison visit, a local source told Compass that, “We have reason to believe the guards or inmates are punishing him for what he did and trying to cast terror into his heart.”

They also claimed prison guards had withheld food and other items taken into the prison for Liu.

Liu, 39, was arrested on April 28, 2007 after distributing a leaflet entitled “A Letter To Our Muslim Friends” during a funeral in Manping Groupin Ketuo village, part of the Dongxiang Autonomous Region, a Muslim-majority ethnic area in Gansu province. (read the rest here)

We’re too busy worshiping Baal and running behind his false prophets (or “profits”, if you will) to make the decision to do the Lord’s work across the globe.

May God have mercy on us all…

21Elijah came near to all the people and said, “(A)How long will you hesitate between two opinions? (B)If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” But the people did not answer him a word. (2 Kings 18:21

    We must pray the Lord’s will be done and if it be His will this brother suffer no more harm. We were promised persecution in this life, not millions and he’s on the front line.

    It’s sad to know our nation does anything with China. And for we consumers it’s practically impossible to avoid their goods in stores.

    You do know, that here in America Muslims are taking over more prisons, EVEN IN THE ATLANTA AREA. There are some prisons EVEN IN THE ATLANTA AREA where the prison “chaplain” is Muslim. Oh, and they only allow one chaplain… That’s right, there are prisons already where Christian ministry has been snuffed out, unless the inmates are doing it. That’s what a brother who does prison ministry in the Atlanta area has told me.

    You’re right. We seem to think that the only persecution we’ll experience as Christians is being ridiculed by others about the silliness that happens in our churches.

    I agree, and I too pray that the Lord’s Will be done.

    I didn’t know that Muslim chaplains are taking over American prisons – especially here in the ATL. I can’t say that I’m surprised – we’re too busy playing church games down here to be taken seriously.

    New Birth South has a shell of a prison ministry (1 minister and several volunteers out of 12,000 members), so what do you expect?

    I recall when I was doing mentoring at the big Club New Birth.

    All that jumping and talk on Sunday mornings, if Eddie mentioned our ministry, we’d be happy if 50 men volunteered for mentoring. After a year, we’d be happy if 5 remained. And the few times Eddie would make a substantial donation to the cash strapped ministry, he made sure to do it in front of the entire assembly, for a nice show. Not very Matthew 6ish

    But back to this matter of persecution. I was listening to John MacArthur do some good exposition of Matthew 16:24 one day last week.

    Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me.

    He was explaining, how in those times, speaking about a “cross” meant one thing CRUCIFIXION, DEATH. Jesus was literally saying His followers must TAKE IT ALL THE WAY TO GOVERNMENT MAKING YOU CARRY A CROSS AND HANGING YOU FROM IT. I mean that gives the verse new meaning. And the apostles all had to go that far with it in one form or another.

    I don’t want to imagine being Liu Huiwen where he is right now. But we’ve (we in luxury American Christians) got to be girding ourselves. So if real persecution does befall us, we stand for Christ.
