World Ignores Myanmar Persecution of Christians
What's New
Categories: Persecution

News Image

The world press, the United Nations and even the Pope have closely followed the campaign in Myanmar of the genocide of ethnic Rohingya Muslims, but there has been little coverage given to the persecution of Christians within Myanmar. 

A group known as the United Wa State Army (UWSA) has carried out the destruction of 3 churches in addition to the seizure and stripping of 52 more churches this year and is still holding 92 Christians hostage until they agree to sign a pledge not to practice their religion. 

More than a hundred already have already signed. UWSA is a rebel faction that enjoys the tacit approval of the central government in its fight against other rebel factions, but which has turned its attention recently on eradicating Christianity in Myanmar instead of warring directly with other factions. 

The UWSA is the military of the ruling party now in charge of Wa state and is also the area's largest ethnic group, but its efforts against Christians are taking place in neighboring Shan State. 

The Lahu Baptist Convention, based in Eastern Shan State, has published accounts of forcible recruiting of at least 41 students by the UWSA. The abductions of both young men and women happened in Bible study classes in churches in Shan State. The areas in which the UWSA is conducting its campaign of repression are now cut off and travel is difficult to impossible.

Rev. Dr. Lazarus, a spokesman for the Lahu Baptist Convention said in the group's press release, "We are very worried about our members who have been detained because we have lost contact with them. We heard that when they were taken, they were not allowed to take their clothes with them. The weather in Mong Pauk is cold."

The UWSA has declared in a broad statement on September 6th that all churches constructed after 1989 are illegal and must be surrendered or demolished. The army has called for the expulsion of foreigners, investigations into teachers, missionaries and clergy and demanded that all religious leader be locals who have the permission of the Wa ruling party. 

This statement was followed by a wave of violence against Christians and the outright destruction of at least three churches and the seizure of others, some of which were converted into police stations.

The indefinite detention of leaders in the Christian community is justified, according to UWSA spokesman Nyi Rang, because there are "extremists" present in their community. Officials have issued an outright ban on Christians assembling or praying in churches and in the city of Mong Pauk, Wa officials warned Christians not to practice their faith even at home.

Locals believe that the Christians who have been detained are currently imprisoned in the UWSA army fortifications in Mong Maw. Tat Jack, a local resident and a Christian whose family is in detention, told

journalists, "My uncle is a preacher. He and his son were detained in early September, but we are not allowed to visit them. We also heard that many members of the Christian community there are detained." Those who have been detained for practicing Christianity and later released, even the women, have had their heads shaved as a warning to others in the Christian community. 

With dozens of churches shut down and hundreds of Christians still in detention with many more already arrested and released, an air of fear hangs over Shan State in Myanmar. Despite the nascent campaign of arrest and torture, no deaths have been reported yet in this quickly escalating cycle of violence. 

But the signs are the same everywhere Christians suffer persecution and they are unmistakable:label preachers as extremists, target foreigners, declare churches illegal and arrest Christians.Next comes mass disappearances followed by burned villages and open murders.

While this campaign has been carried about by the UWSA rebel group, the Myanmar military itself has itself destroyed or converted churches, bombing or demolishing 40 over the past 18 months in the Kachin province and turning another 20 into Buddhist pagodas. 

Myanmar is a dictatorship and Christians are perceived as a threat to dictators and warlords. They see in the Word of God a challenge to the absolute power that they seek on Earth. Christianity is labeled as "extremism" and prayer has becomes, to the Communist regime, an act of insurrection. 

If you want to help the Christians in Myanmar, pray and spread the word. Let people know that Christians are suffering from repression that is fast approaching genocide. If enough people wake up now, if enough eyes are on the UWSA and Myanmar military, maybe the killings can be averted.

The Two - State Paradigm is Over

U.S. President Donald Trump raised eyebrows recently during a joint press conference in New York with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when he backtracked on previous positions he held regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, saying, "I like a two-state solution. That's what I think works best ... That's my feeling."

Those comments by Trump stood in stark contrast with remarks by the president earlier in his administration, when he said in a meeting in the White House with Netanyahu in February 2017 that he supports whatever solution the two parties decide. "I am looking at two-state, and one-state, and I like the one that both parties like. I'm very happy with the one that both parties like."

Nevertheless, Trump quickly backtracked on his remarks last month in New York.

Clarifying his recent comment, Trump explained, "One of the reporters who was screaming asked me about the one state, two-state, and I said I think the two states will happen."

Trump emphasized that he places the ultimate decision in the hands of the parties. "The bottom line is that if the Israelis and Palestinians want two states, I'm OK with that; if they want one state I'm OK with that. I'm the broker."

The comments came amid speculation regarding the release of his administration's highly anticipated Middle East peace plan, which the president has called the "deal of the century." Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, along with special envoy for Mideast negotiation Jason Greenblatt, have traveled to the region numerous times as part of developing their plan.

But experts who have followed the process closely question the feasibility of a comprehensive plan from the Trump administration, including whether or not a two-state solution could come to fruition in the current climate.

A century-long rejection of the two-state solution

Efraim Inbar, president of the Jerusalem Institute for Strategic Studies, told JNS, "It's not up to the president."

He views the idea of a Palestinian state as one that is improbable, at least for the time being. "The Palestinians are incapable of building a state," he said. "The main criteria of a state is the monopoly of control over use of force, and they have lost this monopoly. They cannot sustain state structures."

Turning to the region, Inbar pointed out that a number of Arab countries are failing, and suggested that perhaps the Palestinians would not fair better. "Look at Libya, Syria and Iraq," said Inbar. "They have great difficulty in just maintaining a state!"

Efraim Karsh, director of the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies, is more skeptical than Trump and agrees with Inbar.

He told JNS that "neither option seems to be on the cards since the one-state solution is unthinkable for Israel, whereas the two-state solution has been categorically rejected by the Palestinians. The 'one-state solution,' which has been the Arab position since the 1930s, envisages the transformation of Palestine into an Arab/Muslim state in which Jews will be reduced to a position of permanent 'tolerated minority' [or dhimmis, second-class citizens, as this status has been known throughout Islamic history]. Obviously, this option, which means the destruction of the State of Israel, is unacceptable for Israeli Jews."

Karsh decried the common misperception that Israel's rightful presence in Judea and Samaria perpetuates the Arab-Israeli conflict. "The left-wing fearmongering that Israel is rapidly sliding to this situation due to its continued 'occupation' of the territories is a red herring for the simple reason that since the beginning of 1996--and certainly following the completion of the redeployment from Hebron in January 1997--there has been no occupation. 

Rather, 99 percent of the Palestinian population of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip have lived the rule of the Palestinian Authority [and Hamas in Gaza since 2007]. Under no circumstances will Israel agree to reassume control of this population, let alone make it fully-fledged Israeli citizens."

Karsh emphasized that it is continued Palestinian rejectionism that lies at the root of the problem. "On the other hand, while a de facto two-, or rather, three-state solution has effectively existed for quite some time--Hamas's Gaza state since 2007, the Palestinian Authority-controlled Areas A & B in the West Bank, and Israel--the Palestinians are certain to continue using the red herring of 'occupation' so long as Israel exists. 

For while most Western observers apply the term 'occupation' to Israel's control of the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, captured during the June 1967 war, for Palestinians and Arabs, the Israeli presence in these territories represents only the latest chapter in an uninterrupted story of 'occupations' dating back to the very creation of Israel on 'stolen' land. Hence, their century-long rejection of the two-state solution."

"It doesn't matter what the international community wants," stressed Inbar. "The Palestinians are incapable of having a state. Soon, there will be a violent struggle over who will be the next leader of the Palestinian Authority. It's a moot question. The two-state paradigm is over. I don't know what the alternative is, but we will not see a Palestinian state."

He added that there is "growing skepticism" around the world of the Palestinians' ability even to create and sustain an independent state.

For Inbar, Israel would be better off not intensely pursuing a one-state or two-state solution that would just introduce more complications, especially if the Palestinians do not intend to live in peace alongside Israel.

"Sometimes," he said, "ambiguity serves us better than a clear solution."

The Rising Threat of a Global Pandemic
What's New
Categories: Warning

One hundred years ago, the world struggled against a relentless enemy - H1N1, also known as the Spanish Flu. Rising from the trenches of World War I, it spread to every corner of the globe in 1918 and 1919 - even remote Pacific islands. What made it especially deadly is more than half its victims were healthy adults between the ages of 20 and 40. The virus turned their healthy immune systems against them. 

They died terrible, gruesome deaths. And when the global pandemic finally came to an end, it had taken more lives than the Great War itself. Estimates say between 50 and 100 million people died - about 3% to 6 % of the world population.

Since then, we've avoided a similar outbreak. We've faced scares from bird flu, swine flu, Ebola, and other diseases, but we've avoided a global pandemic. Some of this is because of what we've done. We have better knowledge of how viruses and bacteria spread. We know how to quarantine areas, disinfect treatment centers, and provide more effective medical care. 

But the number one reason we've avoided a global plague is luck. That's right. Since 1918, we've been just plain lucky. And unless we develop a cure for infectious disease, our luck will soon run out. 

World Travel

One reason our luck will run out is our love for international travel. Crossing borders today is more common than it was a century ago. Past generations didn't travel like we do. Most lived their whole lives within a short distance of where they were born. International travel was extremely rare. But today? Today, anyone can fly from one side of the earth to the other in less than a day. And many do just that.

According to World Bank data, since 1970 alone, the number of airline passengers carried has increased more than 12-fold from 310 million passenger flights to 3.98 billion. Even people who don't travel the globe often commute or vacation over long distances. All this travel makes the spread of disease much more likely. 

Containing an outbreak is nearly impossible in today's world, where borders are fluid and commerce moves at light speed. Throw in a new generation of viruses and bacteria, and our world of open borders is more vulnerable to a pandemic than ever before.

The Threat of Mutating Viruses

Since the 1918 pandemic, our knowledge of the flu has vastly increased. We have vaccines. We have plans and procedures for responding to outbreaks. We have antiviral drugs for treatment. But vaccines aren't perfect. We make them based on what flu strains we think will strike in any given year. Because of this, their effectiveness wildly varies. The flu is constantly adapting, and new strains can jump from animals to humans. Because of this constant change, it's impossible to develop a single vaccine to stop the flu. 

Further complicating matters, some strains can easily move from one infected person to another. For example, the 1918 Spanish Flu infected one-third of the people on the planet. Fortunately, it only killed around one in ten people. Imagine if it had been one in three? Or one in two? 

Tens of millions more would have died. Each year that passes without a global pandemic is a huge blessing. Nevertheless, we forget how vulnerable we are. For instance, think about this - last winter, more than 80,000 Americans died from the flu. This wasn't a global pandemic, just a normal flu season. Yet it killed twice as many Americans as auto accidents.

The Threat of "Super" Bacteria

While the threat of a devastating and contagious virus has always loomed large, an equally serious threat has emerged in recent years - "super bacteria." Ironically, this threat is the result of decades of successfully fighting bacterial infections with antibiotics. Doctors have overprescribed antibiotics, and patients haven't always taken them correctly. 

Over time, these antibiotics have killed weaker bacteria, leaving resistant bacteria to multiply. This has led the World Health Organization to label antibiotic resistance a "fundamental threat" to humanity.

Government agencies and other organizations have banded together to fight and contain the threat. But failure to solve the problem could lead to a nightmare scenario where antibiotic-resistant bacteria become commonplace and impossible to treat. If so, the new "post-antibiotic era" will see patients die from once easily treated infections. Think it can't happen? In some cases, we're already there.

Antibiotic-resistant bacteria already infect 2,000,000 Americans and kill more than 23,000 each year. In August, a deadly super bacteria called the "New Delhi" bacteria infected hundreds of people in Poland. Resistant to all known antibiotics, it can quickly lead to sepsis and death. In April, the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention warned that "nightmare bacteria" with the power to resist antibiotics are appearing all across the United States. 

According to a 2016 Wellcome Trust report titled "Evidence for Action on Antimicrobial Resistance," the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria "threatens a return to the pre-antibiotic era of untreatable infections." The report estimates the number of annual deaths from antibiotic resistance is 700,000 worldwide, and the number could rise to 10,000,000 by the year 2050. Make no mistake. This is a global problem. With each passing day, the threat of a global pandemic continues to rise. In fact, unless a solution is developed soon, one is inevitable.

What the Bible Says

None of this should come as a surprise. When His followers asked Jesus about the signs of His coming, He told them what to look for. Among those signs, He mentioned "pestilence" (Luke 21:11). So what is pestilence? 

Merriam-Webster defines it as "a contagious or infectious epidemic disease that is virulent and devastating." Jesus said pestilence and other signs will appear like "birth pains" (Matthew 24:8), meaning they will increase in frequency and intensity in the time leading up to His return. 

So as the end approaches, we should expect infectious disease outbreaks to occur more frequently, impact more people, and be more deadly. But all is not lost. When these things happen, you can be confident time is running short. Jesus is coming. And when He does, He will usher in a new world where there's no more death or crying or sorrow or pain (Revelation 21:4). Amen, Lord Jesus - come!

Lgbt Activists Overplay Their Hand - A Win in the Courts for Religious Freedom
What's New
Categories: Contemporary Issues

On January 9, 2015, I wrote an article titled, "The Mayor of Atlanta Declares War on Religious Freedom." Now, more than three-and-a-half years later, sanity has prevailed and religious freedoms have been preserved. Atlanta must pay up.

The case involved Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran, a man who had served the city of Atlanta for more than 30 years, working with distinction and without blemish. But when he self-published a 160 page book for use in his home church, gay activists rose up against him, demanding that he be fired.

What was his crime?

On his own time and on his own dime, he dared to write a book which contained a few lines - yes, just a few lines - speaking against homosexual practice. (And note that he spoke against other sexual sins as well, based on Scripture.)

According to Cochran, he did this with proper clearance from his authorities, even giving a copy to the mayor, who, Cochran claims, promised to read it.

But at the behest of LGBT activists, Cochran was first suspended for 30 days without pay (seriously!), ordered to go to sensitivity training, then fired.

To add insult to the injury and madness to the circus, Mayor Kasim Reed then explained that Cochran was fired because, "We will not discriminate on the basis of race or gender or religion or creed or sexual orientation or physical ability or gender identity."

This is a line to make George Orwell proud: "Because we will not discriminate based on religion, we are firing you because of your religious beliefs!"

Thankfully, sanity has prevailed and religious liberty has been preserved. As the Daily Wire reported,

The initial ruling in Cochran's favor came back in December, 2017. Now, the city council "agreed to pay out $1.2 million to the former chief for damages and attorneys' fees." (Cochran was represented by the ADF, which has been on the front lines of major religious freedoms victories in recent years.)

In the words of ADF attorney Kevin Theriot, "The government can't force its employees to get its permission before they engage in free speech. It also can't fire them for exercising that First Amendment freedom, causing them to lose both their freedom and their livelihoods."

Precisely so.

The outrage is that this happened in the first place. The outrage is that anyone thought they had the power or right to terminate Cochran for his biblically-based, religious beliefs. And remember: At no point was there a single charge of discrimination brought against him. In other words, he treated all his employees and colleagues in a proper and professional manner.

The issue was what he believed about homosexual practice. And the city of Atlanta had the gall to tell him, "If you hold to these beliefs and express these beliefs, you cannot work for us."

To repeat: That is a Constitutional outrage.

But around the world, similar outrages are occurring.

Most recently, the Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morrison, announced that new legislation would "make it clear that no student of a non-state school should be expelled on the basis of their sexuality."

In other words, a Christian school (or, any religious school) in Australia cannot require its students to live by its moral and religious code.

This is beyond chilling, as once again, gay rights trump religious rights.

Thankfully, in America, there continues to be a pushback against the all-out attack on our First Amendment rights. Rights which are foundational to the well-being of our nation. Rights which have formed the very warp and woof of our country since our inception.

To lose those rights is to lose our freedoms. To lose those rights is to forfeit our liberty and descend into ever-increasing captivity and bondage.

But all is not lost, and Kelvin Cochran's victory is a victory for us all.

And, the truth be told, his victory is not an attack on those who identify as LGBT. He should not have been fired in the first place, and the Bible says what is says. People can accept that or reject that by their own choice. Those are the freedoms we enjoy.

Back in 2003, I noted in one of my sermons that, "The heightened moral crisis in society, led especially by the homosexual agenda, . . . will produce a holy backlash."

It's taken a while, but as LGBT activists continue to overplay their hand, that holy backlash has increased as well. May it abound and grow until sanity and freedom prevail across the land.

In This Judgment the Almighty Simply Hastened the Result of Their Own Actions
What's New
Morning Meditation
F. B Meyer
Categories: Meditation;Inspirational;Book Study

Nations are not destroyed until they are rotten at the core; as the north-east wind which snaps the forest trees only hastens the result for which the borer-worm had already prepared. It would have been clear to any thoughtful observer who had ventured out after dark in Sodom that it must inevitably fall. Unnatural crime had already eaten out the national heart, and, in the ordinary course of events, utter collapse could not be long delayed.

Go into the tents of Abraham, and you find simplicity; hospitality; the graces of a truly noble character, which guarantee the perpetuity of his name, and the glorious future of his children. Now go to Sodom; and in that sultry climate you find a population enervated with luxury; debased by cowardly submission to a foreign tyrant; cankered to the core with vice; not ten righteous men among them all; whilst the purity and sanctity of home are idle words. All these symptoms prognosticate, with prophetic voice, that their "sentence lingereth not, and their destruction slumbereth not."

This suggests a solemn lesson for ourselves. The tide of empire has ever set westwards. India, Babylon, Egypt, Greece, and Rome, have successively wielded supreme power, and sunk into oblivion. Shall it depart from Britain, as it has departed from the rest? It need not do so. Yet, as we remark the increase of extravagance and luxury; the reckless expenditure on pleasure; the shameless vice that flaunts itself in our streets; the adulation of wealth, the devotion to gambling laxness of the marriage tie -- we may well entertain the darkest fears about the future of our fatherland. The only hope for us is based on the important part which we are called to play in facilitating the evangelization of the world. Should we once fail in this -- or should we send out more opium chests than Bibles, more spirit-sellers than missionaries --nothing can avert our fall.

Note....It is interesting that this was written a century ago.
