Patrick Sookhdeo, chairman of the Westminster Institute, warned the world that the Church is facing extinction:
Today we are faced with a potential extinction of the church …Not just in Syria. We’ve seen it in Iraq. The church could fall in Lebanon.
Bishop Julian Dobbs said Syria “used to be one of the easiest places in the Arab world to be a Christian across the Middle East.”
He continued on to say:
The church has existed there since biblical times …Christians were respected by the Muslim majority and were able to practice their faith with little interference. But, this has largely changed since the civil war broke out. …Christians in their homelands have been attacked and invaded, houses have been ransacked, Christians have been kidnapped for ransom and brutally murdered …Yet much of the Western World, the church, the media have remained silent about this situation.
Frankly, its some what irritating hearing conservatives complain about the media and how “the media and the west are silent.” Well, of course the media is silent; so then, become the media. Of course western governments aren’t doing anything; but, what are you going to do about it.
It isn’t true that no one is doing anything. We, Rescue Christians, are doing something. We are saving people’s lives from destruction; in the will of God and His unfailing providence, we are delivering Christians from the pagans who are relentlessly fixated on their destruction. This is why I ask you to please donate to Rescue Christians to save the lives of the saints who are being sought out by those who seek the full destruction of Christianity.
The Associated Press (AP) has written on Rescue Christians and the work that our organization does. Kathy Gannon, AP’s special regional correspondent for Pakistan and Afghanistan, wrote an article in which she recognized Rescue Christians, and which was published in Fox News.
The article interviewed our team in Pakistan, writing:
The Pakistani representative of RescueChristians, speaking on condition of anonymity for his personal safety, said several Christians are waiting for travel documents to secretly leave Pakistan, while others are in jail awaiting trial and targeted for death by militant groups.
It also quoted Keith Davies, one of the heads of the organization, as saying:
In the last three years we have seen a large increase in the number of cases of blasphemy
This gives us significant recognition, as it shows that we actually have a team in Pakistan, who is striving for the liberation of the persecuted, and who is evidencing our labors in order to relive the flock of Christ who are incessantly receiving the attacks of the wolves.
