Pre-9/11, I remember hearing a naive American Evangelical reporting on his missionary trip to Lebanon. Upon learning that the Christians weren't attempting to evangelize their mohammedan neighbors, the American Evangelical asked "Aren't you worried about your neighbors burning in Hell?", the Lebanese pastor replied "I can't think of a better place for them".

The misionary was quite shocked at the Lebanese pastors reply and his shock was quite evident as he relayed the account to the congregation. I just wonder what that American Evangelical now thinks?

Not all Lebanese pastors have turned their backs on their neighbors' souls. Some have stayed to remain a light in that seemingly God-forsaken land. They need our prayers.

Interesting place to be as an American and as a Christian. There is no good choice, either support our ally in the war on terrosism and watch my brothers in the Arab countries take the brunt of the hit by both Muslims and Israelis, or turn our backs on Israel and watch the second Holocaust. How do you answer your brother that you choose Israel over them? I do not know, but they are my brothers. Scripture comes true before our eyes and we are amazed.

Zec. 12:2-3 "Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of reeling to all the surrounding peoples,...3 It will happen in that day, that I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all the peoples. All who burden themselves with it will be severely wounded, and all the nations of the earth will be gathered together against it.

I hope they rethink that policy, because not only is it dishonoring to God, in the long term it is culturally (and maybe even physically) suicidal, as the more Muslims surround the Christians the more precarious their position comes.
