page 33) an
article entitled "Be not conformed'.-Why have American Anabaptist lived in
protest against the modern world?, by John D. Roth (professor of history at
Goshen College, Indiana): "At times, hostility toward nonresistant Christians
has spilled over into outright violence against them, especially during
World Wars I and II. In the summer of 1917, my grandfather was
ordered to appear at Camp Sherman in Chillicothe, Ohio, for basic
training. Like others from his Mennonite community, he reported to
camp but refused to wear a uniform or participate in military training
exercises. One night, he and several other men were awakened,
given shovels, and told to dig their own graves in preparation for their
executions at sunrise. Other friends told of being forced into
cold showers and then surrounded by men who scrubbed their skin raw with
heavy brooms. Some 60 years later, he could vividly recall the
scornful taunts directed at him: coward, slacker, traitor,
yellow-bellied parasite." ... "Though nonconformity takes many different
expressions among Mennonites, Amish, and Brethren today, all share a
common conviction that Christian faith must find tangible expression in
daily life. Each regards the voluntary church as a counterculture
alternative to modern secularism; and each testifies to the radical
power of Christ's love as an active, transformative reality in a broken
and needy world." www.christianhistory.net

"Serving the Persecuted Church for more than 30 years." Have we shamed the face of Jesus?
Muslims in our Pulpits
It was called the "Congress of the Cults." Over 4,000 priests, pastors,
and ministers from all denominations were assembled. They had elected
Joseph Stalin as their honorary president. One after another went to the
podium proclaiming that Christianity and communism were fundamentally the
same. They could co-exist. They could "all get along."
A young Christian woman could bear it no longer. She looked at her
husband, a Lutheran pastor, and said, "They are spitting on the face of
Jesus. Go wash the shame off His face." Her husband warned her, "If I
speak against the communists, you will no longer have a husband." The
pastor's wife, Sabina Wurmbrand, simply replied, "I do not wish to have a
coward for a husband."
So Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, a lone voice among the 4,000, went to the
microphone. He was well known in Romania, and everyone believed he would
go along with the assembly for the sake of "peace." He didn't. He spoke
only of loyalty to Jesus Christ. He could not "co-exist" with any entity
that opposed the Great Commission principle.
For his simple protest, Richard paid dearly-as did countless Christians
who refused to "bow down" to the ways of communism.
Today we face the same scenario. Jesus is being spit upon in American
churches. Christians are selling their soul for a "peaceful co-existence"
found in deceit. But who will come forward and wipe away the shame?
I cannot take it any longer. How many of our brothers and sisters must
be beaten, tortured, burned or decapitated, before we realize that
Christians and Muslims DO NOT serve the same God?
We love the Muslims. Many of our co-workers put aside their own safety
to reach them for Christ. We print special literature in their languages;
we produce and broadcast special programs into the Middle East. We are
willing to give our own lives to win the soul of a single Muslim. But we
will never, never align ourselves with Islam and its militant teachings.
To do so would destroy the very witness many of our brothers and sisters
are dying for.
Across America pastors and Christian leaders are allowing
representatives of the Islamic faith to freely speak in their pulpits. This happened at Willow
Creek Community Church, the largest church in America, where a Muslim man
named Faisal Hammouda was allowed to share the pulpit. During the
interview with Pastor Bill Hybels, Hammouda claimed: "As a matter of fact,
we, all of us ... believe in Jesus. I believe in Jesus. I believe in
Mohammed and all the prophets. So our mission here is to introduce people
to God." He also stated, "We believe in Jesus more than you do, in fact."
But the Koran says, "0 people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)!
Do not exceed the limits in your religion, nor say of Allah aught but the
truth. The Messiah 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryarn (Mary) was (no more than)
a Messenger of Allah and His Word...." The Koran also claims that Jesus
was never crucified. Muslims do not recognize the sovereignty of Jesus
Christ or His sacrifice. They do not accept the way of the cross. So how
could this be the same God?
(Read I John 2:22-23)Faisal went on to say, "Jihad means striving to
improve oneself, striving to change conditions to better conditions,
striving against evil." Even the Chicago Tribune noted that laughter could
be heard "rolling" through the audience as Hammouda discussed the "true"
definition of a "jihad" saying, "It even could refer to a personal holy
war to overcome, say, a desire to eat more candy.
How foolish have we allowed ourselves to become? Three Sundays after
Faisal Hammouda gave his enlightening presentation, 16 of your brothers
and sisters were gunned down in a church in Pakistan. You may blame this
on the war against terrorism, but you would be mistaken. If it was against
America, why did the gunmen target their countrymen? If Faisal is right
and Islam is "peace-loving," why are our brothers and sisters in ALL
Islamic-controlled countries facing severe persecution? Unfortunately, in
his interview, Pastor Hybels left that question out. This may sound harsh;
it isn’t. The treatment that the Body of Christ is facing in Islamic
countries is harsh. We feel truly sorry for Willow Creek. In an effort to
"love," they left out the truth.
There is no love in deceit. We are in danger of loving the Muslims to
hell. What will they say before Christ? Will they say, "But we all served
the same God. We even spoke in your churches. When did we persecute you?"
God forbid we trade salvation for "safety." Could Christ have peacefully
co-existed with the religious rulers of His time? Could the apostle Paul
have "just gotten along- with the religious and political powers of his
time and avoided martyrdom?
Jesus said that if they hated Him, they will hate us. Nevertheless, we
are called to be a witness. We are not called to figure out a way to get
people to accept us.
If you love the Muslims, tell them about the Jesus they so fervently
persecute. If you love the Muslims, support those who are willing to lay
down their life to be a witness among them (John 15:13). If you want to
reach your congregation and help "bridge the gap," invite Christians who
have converted from Islam to speak to your congregation.
The simple fact is: Muslims do not "peacefully co-exist" with
Christians. Faisal Hammouda did not speak for Islam. If he thought he did,
he was deceived. Islamic teachings offer no tolerance for those who reject
Mohammed for Christ. Read the Koran for yourself. Study Islamic history.
Learn the truth about what is happening right now in Sudan, Saudi Arabia,
Pakistan, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Yemen, Iran, Nigeria, Tunisia, Egypt,
Tajikistan and other countries where Islam has a foothold. Remember, less
than one percent of the Muslim population in the world lives in America.
If you study Islamic history, you will learn that Mohammed traveled to
Mecca and offered a peaceful doctrine. But it was not accepted. In fact,
he was even persecuted. So he later traveled to Medina where his teachings
took on a more hard-line militant form. Once he gained a following, he
ruled by force. Now his teachings dominate in many nations. Islam
struggles, fights, and even kills for its faith. Once it gains power, its
real face is revealed. "Accept Allah and his prophet Mohammed, or die."
This is happening right now in Indonesia, where the largest population of
We challenge Pastor Hybels and other American pastors who believe Islam
and Christianity can peacefully co-exist to visit the Maluku islands of
Indonesia or the capital of Islam, Saudi Arabia, where no church is
allowed. We ask you to speak with your brothers and sisters who secretly
worship there. (We have.) We invite you to learn the truth, then decide if
you will join with them in winning Muslims for Christ, or sell your soul
for a shroud of peace.
The main issue at stake is the deity of Christ, not mutual
understanding, dialog or feeling good about each other. Any
question-and-answer session or dialog where Christ is not clearly
presented as the only way (John 14:6) and as the complete Godhead in the
flesh (such as Colossians 1:15-20 and 2:8-10, and 1 John 2:22-23) is
blasphemy and a shameful attack on the cross. Christ described His way as
narrow, not an "all faiths club."
The issue is about access and power, not about negotiating away our
Christianity. In Matthew 25:31-32, Jesus proclaimed this path and power as
solely His. As a result, in Matthew 26:3-4, the chief priests and scribes
consulted that they might kill Him.
Muslims wish to neutralize Jesus for the same reasons the chief priests
and scribes did. Some Christian leaders may try to squirm out of this
conflict to maintain a politically correct, man pleasing church. Choose
this day whom you will serve. If we begin to present a fuzzy God (such as,
we all worship the same God), we are opening the doors of hell to our
people, not the door of heaven.
We may be able to peacefully dialog with a Muslim man in America or in
another Western culture. But this is a distorted reality. It is a partial
truth at best. And when we present Islam as another truth, we spit on the
face of Christ and those who serve His kingdom in Islamic countries.
We do not hate the Muslims. We hate deception. We do not advocate
violence. We advocate love and truth. We desire peace but will not trade
it for compromise. We will reach out to Muslims but will not deny the
sovereignty of Christ and the cross as the only way to salvation. And we
will not turn our back on our family members who are suffering and being
killed under Islam for their faith and witness in Jesus Christ. Islam is
the dominant force trying to eradicate Jesus
Chris in their nations and neutralize Him worldwide as another
"prophet." We will not prostitute the gospel for a politically correct
peace. Should any of us do otherwise?
If you find any news articles or sermons endorsing all faiths "serving
the same God" in your community, please send this material to us as we
take a stand together for Christ. This will help us as we try to gain a
better understanding of the American church and how it is addressing
Islam. If you or your pastor needs more information about Islam, please
call our office. Thank you for standing with our persecuted family this

These Disputations were public debates forced on the Jews by their
Catholic oppressors. A Disputation might occur when a Catholic bishop sent
his storm troopers into a nearby synagogue and dragged the local rabbi
into the public square. The rabbi would then be forced to defend the
Jewish faith on the spot. If the rabbi lost the local Jewish population
could be forcibly converted to Catholicism; if he won he could be charged
with insulting the Catholic religion and be forced to flee for his life.
The Disputation was really a no-win situation but most Jews would agree
that becoming a refugee is preferable to being forcibly converted to

"A law passed in Israel on December 25, 1989 that states:
if a Jewish person believes in Yeshua (Jesus) as their Messiah, then
they are not allowed to immigrate to Israel."
What does this mean? Basically that Yeshua is
BANNED in Israel. He was banned 2000 years ago when
He was crucified and today his Jewish followers are banned.
Yes, ONLY Jews who believe in Jesus (Yeshua) as the Jewish Messiah,
are not allowed to immigrate Israel.

It is very sad that Dale Streisand and thousands of other Jewish Believers in

HOWEVER what is even more said is that because Dale wants to live here in
Israel, he has stated to the Israeli
government that he has embraced Orthodox Judaism and has no links to anymore
to friends who believe in Yeshua (Jesus).
We have seen many people who at one time have believed in Yeshua (Jesus) and
then due to pressure of family,
and in this case reasons of moving to Israel, deny any relationship to Yeshua
(Jesus) the Jewish Messiah.
As you can see the pressure here in Israel "not to believe in Yeshua (Jesus)"
is extreme, and that's why the

Israelis even been beaten

been fired from their jobs,
and the list goes on. Some Jewish Believers have been put in the airport
Prison and deported simply because
of their faith in Yeshua.
The persecution of Messianic Jews (who believe in Yeshua) needs to stop! And
your prayers are most appreciated.
Thomas, things really haven't changed since the books of
Acts. Read Acts 6-8:
Acts 8: On that day a great persecution broke out
against the Jewish followers of Yeshua in Jerusalem, and all except the
apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria. Godly men buried Stephen
and mourned deeply for him. But Saul (who later became the Apostle Paul) began
to destroy the congregations of the followers of Yeshua. Going from house to
house, he dragged off both Jewish men and women who followed Yeshua (Jesus)
and put them in prison.
The truth of WHO Yeshua is needs to be explained to every Jew here in Israel
and throughout the world so that the
can know WHO Yeshua really is and what our Messiah has done for us.
Supreme Court of the United States Girouard v. US, April 22, 1946: "The victory for freedom of thought recorded in our Bill of Rights
recognizes that in the domain of conscience there is a moral power higher than
the State. Throughout the ages, men have suffered death rather than
subordinate their allegiance to God to the authority of the State. Freedom of
religion guaranteed by the First Amendment is the product of that struggle."
“Some people picture
persecuted Christians as historic martyrs of the past suffer for Jesus. In
fact, there are more believers suffering for their faith today than ever
before. And most of them are like you and me - worried mothers, frightened
children, struggling laborers and diligent students. Threatened, arrested
and brutalized, believers hold steadfast under strong coercion to deny
Christ -- for to turn their back on Jesus would be to deny their reason to
exist.” – Campus Crusade for Christ; November, 2009
When we claim allegiance
to the Heavenly government, persecution begins. But eventually, when we remain
steadfast, they can no longer deny our existence.
Christian’s primary allegiance is always to Jesus Christ. Christians proclaim
Him Lord, recognize Him as their legitimate King, and live as citizens of His
kingdom first and foremost. The demands of human government are always
secondary to the demands of Christ and His Kingdom—as the lives of countless
martyrs and the persecuted church past and present attest.
If Muslims and
Christians address the same God, how then is this fact possible "...there is
not a single one of the fifty-five predominately Muslim nations on earth today
where Christians are not persecuted."

Handmade embroidery of a Hmong woman now
living in Green Bay, WI. It tells the story of her people’s plight.
OF THE HMONG IN LAOS
early 18th century, about 50,000 Hmong migrated from China to northern
Laos to find peace, freedom and more land for farming. The Hmong
population in Laos had grown rapidly to 350,000 by the mid 1960’s. Located
near the border of northern Vietnam, they have never had a
peaceful life. Most of the Hmong men from 12 to 55 years old were
recruited by the U.S Central Intelligence Agency to fight the North
Vietnamese and Lao communist forces
in Laos, intended to block
North Vietnamese expansion into South Vietnam. When the Royal
Lao government collapsed, the Hmong were forced to flee the country or
risk being slaughtered because of their involvement in American military
operations for 15 years, including efforts to rescue American pilots who
had been shot down over North Vietnam.
A few of the Hmong families were airlifted to safety in Thai
camps, but thousands were abandoned, forgotten and left behind to run for
their lives through the jungle. Those who remained have been sent to
re-education camps, gassed, or killed.
During their 20 to 25 day walk from the hills of Laos to Thailand, many Hmong were assaulted,
abused, or killed. They slipped into the Mekong River at night aboard logs,
makeshift rafts, or even with lengths of bamboo underneath their arms like
water-wings to make their break to freedom. Hundreds drowned or were
assaulted during their attempts. Once the survivors made it across the
river, they were placed in jails and eventually into Thai camps.

Never have incidents of injustice been more
evident than in the mental health field, where laws have empowered
psychiatrists to seize people and, without trial, not only deprive them of
their liberty, but commit heinous acts upon them. Committed by anyone
else in society, these acts would result in charges of false imprisonment,
assault, manslaughter, murder and rape.
Psychiatrists claim the title of "medical
practitioner," in order to give their pronouncements legitimacy. But
this is a misnomer similar to a Nazi Gestapo officer claiming to be a rabbi.
While they are required to attain a medical degree as a prerequisite to
entering the specialty of psychiatry, they have, in fact, bitterly betrayed
that honorable heritage and the ancient yet still valid Hippocratic oath to
"do no harm".
The lives of millions of men, women and children who
may have otherwise fallen into psychiatry's hands have been saved by CCHR's
efforts and achievements. Thousands of victims have been rescued.
Human Rights made A Fact
This publication details some of the
investigations and inquiries, major changes and reforms CCHR has helped to
bring about. That psychiatry has become a "rotting ship" is solely
because of its own crimes and inhumanity towards others. Now open to
public scrutiny as a result of CCHR's work, it is no longer tolerated by men
and women of integrity and goodwill.
This "weeding out" system is chillingly
reminiscent of that used by Nazis who plucked Jews, gypsies and other ethnic
groups, including both children and the aged, labeled them as mental misfits
and then disposed of them in a holocaust unparalleled for its inhumanity.

stimulant, the drug acts as a tranquilizer in children with frightening
results: insomnia, anorexia, stunted growth, sleeplessness, headaches,
addiction and psychotic reactions. The withdrawal symptoms of the drug
include severe and prolonged depression which can cause a child to commit
Under the so-called diagnostic criteria published
