Crucifixion Legalized and Practiced In Darfur
God has laid on my heart the Christians that are being persecuted around the world. I watched a program the other day on the History channel on crucifixion. It showed the history and practice of crucifixion. The program showed that crucifixtion is now been legalized and being practiced in the Sudan. Religious genocide is going on right now. While thousands of Christian's in Darfur have been killed where is the outrage? Where is the condemnation of the leaders? We took action when the Jewish genocide was going on in Germany (although not until after millions had been murdered). Will we remain silent in acting in Darfur? I believe that as Christians we need to be concerned about human rights around the world. It is amazing the reports of human rights violations that are happening to Christians around the world.
The following are websites that I recommend in dealing with Human Rights:

How do you feel about this issue? How does it make you feel that Christians are being crucified in 2008? Should Christians be concerned? Why or why not? Should Christians get involved in helping our brothers and sisters around the world? How? Why has Darfur been ignored? Is it because it is Christians being persecuted? What will happen if the world remains silent to the genocide that is taking place? What will happen if American Christians ignore it? Is it important that Christians be concerned about human rights? Why or why not? How have you seen persecution? Do we as American Christians know what persecution is really like?
