Losing Your Life for Christ’s Sake

Losing Your Life for Christ’s Sake

“Anyone who loses his life for my sake… will save it.”

Pierre Claverie (Clav’er aye) was born in Algeria in 1938. He grew up in a loving family of French people who had settled in Algeria. He said he lived in a “colonial bubble,” in other words, completely cut off from the majority Arab population. As a young man he was called to the priesthood and joined the Dominicans in France. Despite the political upheavals, he wanted to return and serve in Algeria. He steeped himself in the Arab culture, learning the language and living close to the people. He wanted to bear witness to Christ’s call to reconciliation between races.

In 1981, Pierre Claverie (Clav’er ee) was made Bishop of Oran. Christians in the region were few in number and surrounded by a dominant Muslim population. As Muslim fundamentalists became more powerful, Christians were threatened and several members of religious orders were assassinated. (Clav’er ee)  became increasingly aware of the danger he was in, but in this situation he also deepened his understanding of the cross. He did not leave but stayed to bear witness to the love and mercy of Jesus and his promise of eternal life. In 1996 Bishop Pierre Claverie (Clav’er ee) and his Muslim driver were blown up by a terrorist bomb. Continue reading

Pastor Warns: The United States becoming Like a Nazi Nation

Pastor Warns: The United States becoming Like a Nazi Nation

ProLifeCorner- by Frank Munda- 10-25-2015 – Pastor Timothy Barr warns us that we are becoming like a Nazi nation.

With modern communications I believe it would be almost impossible for someone not to be aware of the atrocities against mankind perpetrated by the heartless, barbaric, corrupt, and inhumane corporation called Planned Parenthood.

How many times have you heard, or possibly even said yourself, where was the church in Nazi Germany? Where was the church in defending the Jews and the millions of non-Jews led to slaughter in the Nazi concentration camps? It is an historical fact that those who spoke out against the Nazis and their crimes against humanity ended up in the concentration camps, just like the Jewish people did. Heed my warning.  Years from now someone will be asking you, what did you do to stop the slaughter of the over 56 million babies in the United States since 1973? What did you do to stop the government sponsored slaughter of these babies? What did you do to stop the government sponsored euthanizing of the elderly and infirm, the poor and unwanted through government sponsored healthcare? What did you do to defund this hideous, sadistic, Hitler like corporation called Planned Parenthood? What did you do to remove corrupt politicians, who accept millions of dollars in campaign funds thereby buying their political support for Planned Parenthood?. What will your excuse be? I did not know?  That excuse will not stand up before God or before man.

This generation will be held accountable for its apathy and what it fails to do to stop these crimes against all of mankind.

I will try to summarize some of the thoughts of Pastor’s sermon in my own words . He tells us don’t be silent; our silence is saying it is okay to kill a baby in the womb. We as a society need to stand up. Why did Hitler get away with what he did?  Because good people remained silent. Don’t be silent, educate yourself on this issue.  Abortion on demand hurts women; it treats them like an object to the point that now the rate of rape is on the rise. We need to stand up for the dignity of women and the dignity of babies. America needs to rise up before we become another Nazi society, if we are not there already. Continue reading
