Jesus Christ Is Lord

That every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father!

The War Against Christians In Iraq Continues!

Posted by Job on May 19, 2008

From Voice of the Martyrs!

Every night on the news we hear updates of violence in Iraq. The war continues and commentators debate whether American soldiers should be there or not. What we do not hear about is the plight of Christian nationals in Iraq. For them a spiritual war wages.

When “Muhammad” first converted to Christianity from Islam, he kept his new faith a secret. In fact, the first person he told outside of his wife and son was a Christian named “Joseph.” He knew the risks of sharing his faith with others in his homeland of Iraq but felt led to do so anyway. So he witnessed to his extended family. Following radical teachings of Islam, family members killed Muhammad.

Muhammad’s widow sent Muhammad’s friend “Joseph” an e-mail after the martyrdom of her husband. She wrote:

“I have bad news. Muhammad is dead. Our family killed him for sharing his new faith in Jesus Christ. I miss him dearly. Muhammad left me two important things: my son and our Bible. I’ll never forget why he died. He died for Jesus. I believe Jesus will help me. Tell the people [other Christians] to pray for me.”

Muhammad’s widow and son are now being supported by VOM’s Families of Martyrs fund. This is perhaps VOM’s most important work: reaching out to families who have been victims of severe persecution and martyrdom. Each week we learn about new cases that need our support.

Would you like to help VOM expand this critical work? We invite you to follow the link below to learn more about VOM’s Families of Martyrs fund and to make a contribution. Your support will provide for the immediate needs of our persecuted family members.

    Iraqi Christians have been living with Muslims for centuries,before
    you came in and slaughtered 1 Million Iraqis and caused 5 other Millions to be exiled in this crisis you have created, you are the
    crusaders not the Muslims, Jesus has always been and stays a high rank prophet in Islam, but let me tell you this: you are held responsible of all the killings in Iraq.

    Karim:

    The people responsible for the current Iraq war, the previous Iraq war, and for starting the Iran – Iraq War from 1980 – 1988 that killed … what was it … 1 million on both sides or was it 2 million – were not Christians. Please be aware of that fact. Also be aware that even if Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and all their cast of characters were Christian, you yourself know that it would not justify murdering innocent people that had nothing to do with the Iran or Iraq war policies. The Christians in Iraq are not responsible for the actions of the United States and British governments, so murdering them in reprisal is evil and wrong even according to your own religion.

  3. Karim, your love or hatred of America will not save your soul. Holding Jesus as simply a “high rank prophet in Islam” cannot and will not save your soul

    Only until you realize that JESUS IS THE CHRIST, THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD AND YOUR ONLY HOPE FOR SALVATION will you find hope for your soul.

    Muhammad lied to you. Muhammad was NOT the one Jesus said would come after Him.
