Let Justice Roll

"Let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never failing stream!" - Amos 5:24

Anyone who is interested in social justice, not only Christians, should be concerned about the following item.

According to Breakpoint, the country of Myanmar (Burma) is ordering that "Christians be wiped out" (from a report in the 1/21 edition of the British newspaper the Telegraph.) The world has learned what can happen if one group of people targets another for destruction. From Nazi Germany to Stalin to Rwanda and the Balkans, unspeakable evils can be attempted by misguided people.

A quote from the article from Breakpoint reads:
This is all part of a pattern of persecution, which includes “ethnic cleansing” of Christian minority groups, the destruction of villages, forced conversions, and even rape and murder. It’s part of the regime’s attempt “to create a uniform society in which the race and language is Burmese and the only accepted religion is Buddhism.”

I encourage anyone who reads this to pray and, if so inclined, to contact your representatives about pressuring China to apply pressure on Myanmar. We've learned painful lessons of what happens if we don't speak out. I would cry out if the situation were reversed - it doesn't matter who it is, no people group deserves terror like that. Standing for fellow Christians makes it even more pressing.
