LISTEN NOW! Greg, John, and Pat discuss the importance of seeking Biblical perspective to the crisis in Syria. They discuss how God is a God of Justice. Money should never be a motive for saying no to helping someone who is experiencing injustice. They discuss how Hitler gassed innocent Jews for being Jewish! It was evil and we have suffered much because we as a nation stayed silent and turned boats away full of Jews that were all killed later. If we stand by and allow someone to gas their citizens don’t think God, who is just, will not balance the scales and gas our soldiers in a war or our families and children. The question is who says the United States of America is the only nation that needs to act and take action in Syria. The truth is that the Arab League which is comprised of 22 Arab nations should be taking the lead as opposed to supporting the United States to take action when Syria is one of their rogue nations. They continue to share how the United States is not targeting President Assad but could actually hurt and kill the Syrian people. President Assad alone should be the one who pays the price.

Finally, we need to turn to Israel for wisdom in this matter for there is no one on earth that understands this as well as they do and most likely are empathetic for the victims who were gassed by their own nation while the world does nothing. Not to mention that they are the only democracy whose safety hangs in the balance. So if we should follow anyone’s advice and wisdom it should be Israel and if not publicly stated it should be privately sought so they don’t become more of a target than they are now. They continue to share the importance of this context. If God’s Word, the Bible, can be taken out of context imagine what men’s words can do. We must always consider context of what’s going on and the fruit of those

As Americans we chose a President to lead us, whose platform was to remove Jerusalem as the capital of Israel – booed God and forced GOD and JERUSALEM back in but America voted no. With all this in mind with Syria surrounded by 22 Arab Muslim Islamic nations who are unified, one of which Syria, – IT WOULD BE NATURAL FOR US to put our efforts behind
supporting and encouraging them, the Arab League, to deal with Assad. Dealing with Assad means not hurting the Syrian people. If someone deserves death and loss it’s not the victims of the one who is bringing that death, Assad. We must pray protection for Israel and support Israel. We must also pray for the reported 100,000 victims of this civil war in Syria including those who it has been reported have been gassed. Finally to compare what and how the Jews were gassed by Hitler to what is happening in Syria couldn’t be further from the truth. There are some obvious things to consider namely:
– Israel was not at war with Germany,
– They were upstanding citizens
– They worked, lived and played
-They owned businesses and employed Germans
– They were a blessing and were blessed
This is completely different. The Jews were hated by Hitler and Satan. There was a progression to this atrocity. They were identified, led into the ghettos, and
finally led to board the trains that would take them to their deaths. Even today Christians are being persecuted in Egypt and America remains silent. It is being reported that if America bombs Syria, Christians in the region will be attacked. They continue to discuss what could have sealed America’s fate was Secretary John Kerry’s statement as protesters with red stain on their hands meant to look like blood, lifted their hands behind him “America is the only irreplaceable nation in the world.” This cannot be any further from the truth. The minute America bombs Syria we will see a shift downward for Christians and the Jews in how the world will relate to them. Will our hands be stained with blood?
