Pity for the persecutors

The nation of Indonesia happens to sit on one of the most active faultlines on Earth.  It is also the nation that has the largest amount of Muslims.  Since the tsunami of 2004, they have suffered numerous earthquakes, floods, minor tsunamis, and volcanic activity.  Hundreds of lives have been lost in the midst of all of this and the government has, for the most part, received pity and welcomed aid from other nations openly.  Yet in the midst of all of this, there seems to be plenty of time for Indonesians to participate in one of their most favorite pastimes–persecuting Christians.

When their time and resources should be spent on rebuilding from their disasters and preserving their livelihood, Muslims there make time to burn and bomb churches, behead Christians, jail them on ridiculous charges, and assasinate them at will without the government taking any major steps to stop them.  Could it be this is why they have so many natural disasters?  Are they a nation under God’s judgment?  If so, they are unrepentant of their evil works.  Shouldn’t people who are shown pity be merciful to others?

“And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.” (Revelation 9:20-21)

In the midst of our lives of relative ease and comfort, let’s not forget about our brothers and sisters around the world who suffer for the sake of the gospel.

  1. Had a pastor, years ago in California, who spent a month in Indonesia. He told us that it was the most demonically oppressed place he’d ever been. He said that it was palpable in the atmosphere as soon as he got off the plane.

    1. Jay,

      Can you name any examples of Christians killed? And I don’t remember saying that ALL storms or natural disasters are sent by God. We live in an evil, less than perfect world where bad stuff happens to people regardless of their religion. And if God were responsible for a natural disaster that knocks out a church building, it would be a testimony against what the church is doing or not doing, just like he allowed the temple in Jerusalem to be destroyed in 70 AD. The same God who creates life has the authority to take it and not even you can stop it with all your hatred against that omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent and righteous God that you in the wickedness of your heart hate.

  3. Thanks Harry did the Holy Spirit tell you i am wicked and have a heart of hate,or is that just Harry’s off the wall opinion.Either way you are a liar you can ask my neighbors and friends they will tell you what a great person i am helping my neighbors out growing a large vegetable garden and giving most of it to my neighbors and friends.I have past expierence repairing appliances,i repair their appliances free of charge except the price of the part.I don’t need to be a christian or practice christianity to know how to do good.Christians are killed their churches blown away all the time then they are so dumb they thank your god for sparing some of their lives,never mind that according to you he blew all their possesions away causing them pain and suffering trying to rebuild.
    Of course i know disasters are merely natural disasters,but Harry likes to claim the Indonesia disaters and others are from a wrathful god.Harry is so dumb and thinks only he is correct then ignorantly claims it’s a testimony against that church.Harry you are sick.And God had nothing to do with the temple in Jerusalem being destroyed in 70 A.D.You have a warped mind controlled by a false religious belief. Your claimed Jesus has not returned in 2000 years and never will except when the sun comes up each morning.
    In Truth,

    1. Jay I know you’re wicked by all the lies you’ve told when you come here trolling my website. In previous comments you claimed atheism then changed that when I highlighted the wickedness atheists have carried out in history. That’s what atheists do. They lie when they think their lies will work to their advantage. Lying is their native language and you carry out that long tradition.

      If your heart isn’t right with God, then your acts of righteousness are worthless in God’s eyes according to Isaiah 64:6. Jeremiah said that if anyone wants to boast about something worthwhile they should boast in the fact they know & understand the God of the Bible. Therefore your boasting about yourself is vain & worthless.
