Unaware Americans

Dr. Al Mohler has composed a timely post regarding the ongoing, what can only be labeled as, genocide in Darfur, Sudan. I urge you to read his lenthy article…it is well worth your time. Ironically, the very first post on SmittyCity in April of last year was about this very issue. If you have time, please read Hotel Sudan.

  1. Yep, everyone in history appears to ignore genocides. No one wants to acknowledge it. Why? Perhaps satan has blinded their eyes.

    Sudan sells much oil to China, which is partially why they turn a blind eye.

    I tend to think a lot of Christians and jews will be slaughtered during the tribulation. Bet people will turn a blind eye then, too.

  2. great point

  3. After I read your previous post “Hotel Sudan” my first thought was on this verse:

    “Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter.” Prov. 24:11 (ESV)

    And the next portion struck me harder:

    “If you say, ‘Behold, we did not know this,’ does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it, and will he not repay man according to his work?” Prov. 24:12 (ESV)

    I confess my own iniquity when it comes to having either the courage or motivation to carry the above out – but that does not provide me excuse or shelter me from the fact that I will answer for my deeds upon this Earth.

    I just pray God will reveal this to more people – and, most importantly – instill in us a Spirit of courage and movement to, if necessary, step in and take lashes upon our own backs to save those who cannot (possibly) save/defend themselves.

    Thanks, Smitty – for bringing this to our attention.

  4. I think as Christians we should go to the Sudan and fill up in our flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church (Colossians 1:24). I am a bit mass suicidal in that respect but I think it is a travesty that our churches have Independance Day and Memorial day celebrations to celebrate the sacrifices made by those in the military to gain temporary freedom for Americans or others. I love the armed forces, I love America, many of my best friends and family are in or have been in Iraq, among many other wars. I am not trying to be unpatriotic. But this is a travesty because we as Christians have been given the responsibility to go to the ends of the earth to wage a war for eternal freedom.

    My question is this when will we value eternal freedom the way the world values temporary freedom? When will the headlines read 2,000 missionaries killed in Iraq? When will the beaches of some closed country run red with blood because we were so desperate to get in and share the truth? Everytime I watch Saving Private Ryan and see the beaches of Normandy I long for the church to love Christ like that. I long for our churches to be empty on Sunday because we have chosen to take up our crosses and bear out the sufferings of Christ for the world to see. You want a Great Awakening that would wake up America, that would wake up the world. When they see that Christ is our treasure above everything.

  5. keith…brother, your extremely radical…I love it. I completely agree with your convictions. Thank you for sharing them.
