Video on ‘How Christians should respond to suffering & persecution (whether it be Saeed Abedini, ourselves, or others)’
This goes against the grain of our Americanized westernized emergent Christianity. But those of us that live in the USA must think more like Christ, and less like Americans. When we can fully comprehend that, then we will be more like His bride.
Update: The first comment to this video was that there’s “nothing wrong with being happy a fellow Christian’s were released.” I didn’t want to make a political thing out of this video. But I am not happy that so many Christians displayed weakness and a lack of faith and trust in the Lord over this. I am not happy that this compromised the Iranian Arms Deal. I am not happy that we exchanged their terrorists for our prisoners. I am not happy that we lifted our sanctions on Iran. I am not happy that will financially assist them in building nuclear weapons.

It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes. All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them” (Psalm 118:8-10).
