Patti, Michael and Patty, thank you for the feedback. It's an honor when we can take a stand in any way with our persecuted brothers and sisters who are truly heroes in the faith. Thank you for being a voice for them!

Thank you for your thoughtful and well stated comments. Tonight I will be sharing with a Community Group from my church who want a VOM "project". I will read your comments to them about the persecuted not being a cause but a family we are standing with.

The Biblical perspective of the persecution of Christians should not be based on how we react to the human doctrine of social justice. It should be based on the justice and righteousness that first of all comes from God (Amos 5:24) and secondly should be reflected in the laws of nations. This is where "natural law" comes from, which produced our Declaration of Independence and Constitution. The Christian "goal" should be to expose persecution to the light (John 3:20) by proclaiming the truth. That very act is a form of resistance that many in the church are shying away from. Just because Scripture tells us we will be persecuted is no reason to justify lying down in defeat. Christians need to speak out against social injustice -- not because we think we can change the world, but because the world needs to hear the message of the Gospel and know that God doesn't want anyone to be mistreated or abused.

So well-said. Trying to understand the differences between social justice and what's biblical, I haven't found many articles that place Scripture and God's ways over man's. In this you do, and I'm grateful. I will be promoting the article in this week's blog post at tla-ht.blogspot.com/ God bless you and the work you do.
