“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

Leon Watson and Daniel Bates, "The baby born on a prison floor to a mother in shackles is blessed by the Pope: Sudanese woman who was put on death row for marrying a Christian Meets Francis after travelling to Rome", 24 July 2014 Daily Mail Online, United Kingdom.

Meriam Ibrahim, daughter Maya
and Pope Francis in Rome last week
Christian Meriam Ibrahim is finally free, thanks primarily to pressure from Christians around the world, other people of good will, and western governments. Meriam Ibrahim is safely out of Sudan.

The byline for the British Daily Mail article above is quite misleading and, quite frankly, inaccurate. Meriam was sentenced to death for refusing to renounce her own Christian faith. She was further sentenced to 100 lashes for adultery (she had sex with her Christian husband). You may recall that I wrote numerous posts about her during late May and June.

Now, l shall be politically incorrect but correct nonetheless: We should see the Meriam Ibrahim case as a clear warning of the brutality and barbarity of Islam and Sharia law. 

A fate similar to what was waiting for Meriam awaits Christian "infidels" everywhere as Islam spreads and becomes the state religion in more places. They are using western pluralistic, multi-culturalists as useful idiots: Islam has no such interests. 

Under Islamic law, Christians who refuse to renounce Christ and become Muslim will suffer and die. If the world becomes Islamic (and that's the Islamic goal) Christian readers of this blog, or future generations of Christians, would eventually face an equally grim fate under Islam as Meriam narrowly escaped. 

In places like Egypt, Syria, Iran and Africa countless Christians are suffering and dying for their faith. It grows each year. Much of the secular western media turn a blind eye to this growing and horrendous Christian persecution. Why? I think it's because that much of western liberal, secular media in vehemently anti-Christian too. 

The Meriam Ibrahim story got coverage because its gross and flagrant violation of fundamental human rights became visible -- to visible to be ignored or suppressed. Millions of other Christians being persecuted fall under the media radar. 

I want to conclude this blog post by congratulating everyone who spoke up for Meriam Ibrihim and her family. You literally helped save her from torture and execution!

Remember, other Christians are suffering and dying for Christ even as I write these words. Please do not forget them in your prayers: They are our brothers and sisters in Christ.
