tiny lebanon has seen very little in the way of calm relations in decades among its assorted religious factional groups. and people keep fleeing syria, leaving everything behind in the bid to keep their lives.
there is a war within, and a burgeoning refugee crisis across any border where people can find a place to stand. shame the UN prioritises the palestinian refugee fiction over real crises like this.

Syria is a hell on earth. I'm so sorry for the children, they sure do not deserve to reap what adults have created.

Terrible what those people have to go through. Genocide all over the world has to stop.

Can you believe this?

" Iran and Syria, countries often scrutinized for their human rights abuses, are among the seven nations in the Asia group vying for seats in the United Nations Human Rights Council, Reuters reported, citing anonymous U.N. diplomats."

Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world believe it or not! Just look at what is happening again. Muslims kill Christians or force conversion, that's how their numbers are growing so quickly. What else would you do if you had a gun to your head both figuratively and literally?
This must be stopped and for all those naysayers who whimpered and whined about the old battle hymn "Onward Christian Soldiers" perhaps it's time to dust off the old humnals and rebel against this war on non-Muslims.

No child should have to live in fear - fear of losing one or both parents; fear of losing siblings, other family members; fear of losing their own lives...No child needs to live in fear in the 21st Century, unless they live in most of the world today.

What you have done to others will be done to you.

I place this comment in the hands of Creator. If he wants it printed fine, If not fine. But it's a burden on my heart and I must use my voice in hopes of saving our country. This article is about Christians. My comment is an appeal to Christians. If you don't want to hear the truth, don't read what I say.

I'm going to tell you up front, from many years of deep Bible study I am convinced that Bible is a book of "karma". What you sow you reap.

Families and Nations also carry karma. Remember the days of Constantine? If not, do some research, Under his control do you know what Christians ( called Catholics at the time - mostly) did to those who would not agree to their teachings of power for the rulers and hell for the victims? If you're a learning person, like I am, drop by the site Tentmaker where there's lots of evidence that the concept of "hell" which was most often mistranslated from the scriptures, was used to terrify people into obedience to the money/power church..

The Bible has been mistranslated again and again and again. Check out the evidence. Mark 7:13 is what
Jesus said. Now go for Jeremiah 8:8 How can you say "We are wise for we have the law of the LORD.
when actually the lying pen of the scribes has handled it falsely,." New International version

I invite you to think. I invite you to change your ways of condemning others. I invite you to pray without malice. We are so much in the same condition as Israel was in the O.T. before she was conquered.
It's not too late. But the clock is ticking.

Do you know the history of the Christian church? Yes, dear atheists, I know YOU do, I'm not an atheist but neither can I call myself a Christian. I believe we have a loving creator who is not going to "lose" one soul,
The Bible is full of the evidence that torment is NOT forever. But the idea of "hell" sure kept the people under the control of fear!

Even today, Christians put on an act of loving kindness UNTIL you disagree with them. There's a lot of anger hidden under the sweetness and light.

So do what Yahshua (never called Jesus a day in his life) do what HE told you Christians to do. Forgive.
"Forgive us our debts (karma) as (to the same degree) we forgive our debtors." Stop trying to scare us into believing what your particular church is prescribing for you to believe and they don't want you to ask questions! Don't research. Just believe what you're told. That's control. Jesus was not a controller. But the churches are.

Go to Creator, on your knees, you who call yourselves Christians. Repent for what you have done against your "enemies". Beg Creator to absolve you from your ego. Then pray for your enemies. Your Bible says if you love and obey Creator, he will champion you.

I suggest, for the sake of our country and your families, you get to praying with a group of intercessors and intercede with tears, not complaints. I recommend Capitol Hill Prayer Partners. It's a praying group of your kind of Christians whose emails keep you informed of what's going on in both America and Israel and the middle east. Become one of the many who link and pray together.

Double Dare Ya!
