A church for Muslims: Compassion not suspicion


And there they preached the gospel. (source)

Posted on


adrian-churchPastor Adrian Rodriguez has been preaching the gospel, translated by his wife, to about 30 people every Sunday in a church on the outskirts of Hartford, Connecticut, and not one of the congregants is Christian. All of them are Muslim. “We’re dealing with very hardcore Muslims,” he says of the immigrant refugees from the Middle East who are drawn to his church. “They’re very indoctrinated. But God is speaking to their hearts.” Pastor Adrian’s response to America’s burgeoning Muslim enclaves is perhaps Christianity’s best model: View them with eyes of compassion, not with eyes of suspicion. With 375 Muslims per 100,000 residents, Connecticut is the 14th most Muslim state in the nation, according to a Huffington Post article in 2012. The number of mosques has doubled to more than 2,100 nationwide since the year 2000, according to a survey. While most Americans are not hostile towards Islam according to reports, there has been concern about radicalized youths. The Homeland Security Department estimates 100 U.S. citizens have traveled to Syria and Iraq to join ISIS.

Also there is worry the courts may allow certain Sharia law practices under the First Amendment. Pastor Adrian, 47, knows all about this. His own wife made her way to America from Iraq in order to form a home in an arranged marriage when she was 16. Because she was beaten, she divorced after only two years, he says. Years later, she met Adrian and they married in 1998. A certified translator on call for courts, hospitals and law enforcement agencies, Silvia now meets people suffering under the sometimes-heavy hand of foreign customs. More often, she buys groceries for the destitute people she translates for on behalf of authorities. The pastoral couple shares dinners with Muslim families, slowly becoming friends while exemplifying the love of Christ. “You can’t just flat-out talk about religion,” Pastor Adrian says. “You have to gain their trust. That’s why they come to our church. It takes months of loving them and being a part of their lives.” Pastor Adrian and his wife have been reaching out to Muslims in and around Hartford for six years – and still they don’t have a single convert. “It’s hard for them to accept Christ because they have been told all their lives that he was just a prophet,” Pastor Adrian says. “Their religion is so much a part of their identity. They feel that if they give up their religion, they have nothing left.” So Pastor Adrian preaches about God’s love. He shows Jesus’ teaching and ministry style in his sermons. The Muslims seemed to love the message. But when he recently broached the subject of Christ’s divinity, attendance dwindled, he says. “It’s been wonderful planting this church,” Pastor Adrian says. “It’s been challenging. And it’s been discouraging because you want them to wake up and see what you see.”One Muslim lady has had tears in her eyes as she listens to sermons. “She’s touched,” he says. “It’s something she’s never experienced before.” Still, she hasn’t accepted Jesus into her heart. In a national context in which the governor of Louisiana and the president of the Family Research Council have alleged that America has Muslim “no-go zones” where law enforcement doesn’t enter, Pastor Adrian’s life and ministry seems to offer a more Christ-like response to Islam.Show the love of Christ, don’t just rile emotions to shore up your constituency. It’s also likely a viable counter-terrorism measure since it reaches out to the alienated and destitute families that research shows are prone to resorting to fanaticism. Pastor Adrian is not so sure about the extent and impact of his church. To him, it’s simply a matter of leading people to Christ. He also cautions against excessive alarm. He says he’s never encountered cases of threats against conversion, though both in American and from Iraq family members have pressured congregants to not convert. “They see that we’re different,” Pastor Adrian says. And so they keep coming.


And of some have compassion, making a difference: (source)

The saying is proverbial: “People do not care how much you know, until they know how much you #care.” There is a measure of truth in that.

Consider the case of Jesus #Christ. Much significance has been attributed to Jesus’ deep emotional response to his friends’ weeping, and his own tears. Weeping demonstrates that #Christ was a true man, with real bodily functions such as tears, sweat, blood, eating and drinking.

The book of Hebrews states. “For we have not a high priest that cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but one who has been tempted like as we are, yet without sin (4:15).” Of special interest is the term “touched.” the meaning is to feel with and our English “sympathy” is derived from this word.

Below we present Heart Touching Photos Posted on Godinterest in February 2015

01

…a child of the Erbore tribe, #Ethiopia

02

…Marine Sergeant Frank Praytor feeds a 2-week-old kitten named Miss Hap after her mother had been killed during a mortar attack in #Korea.

03

The #Lord is not going to miraculously deliver us from the physical effects of a sin-cursed world. It is noteworthy, though, that as we suffer, we may be assured of his genuine sympathy.

04

The very first wedding photo Wu Conghan and his wife Wu Songshi were able to take after getting #married 88 years prior.

05

…..Specialist Dean Oldt, a marksman with the 101st Airborne, is reunited with his father. “Does Jesus care, when our hearts our pained, too deeply for mirth and song? When the burdens press and the cares distress, as the day grows weary and long?” The answer is a resounding, “Yes, he cares, we know he cares; his heart is touched with our grief.” Our knowledge of this fact is grounded in the biblical information we have just surveyed. Be comforted by it.

06

….A survivor finds a photo album and cherished memories in the remains of his home after an earthquake in Sichuan, China.  When we are afflicted with disease, pain or loss of life, he cares. When we are grieving the loss of dear ones, he cares. When we are confused, and in a maze of misdirection, desperately needing leadership, he has compassion for us. When we are mistreated, he feels for us.

When we dredge ourselves into the mire of sin, he grieves over that disaster. When, in hardness of heart, we even hatefully oppose him, he continues to feel for us. Is this not absolutely amazing? How can one continue to resist him in view of these wonderful truths? Can not the “goodness of God” lead us to repentance (Romans 2:4)? And what of our need to exhibit compassion to others? Can we not exclaim: “I will show compassion to others, because my Savior first showed compassion to me” (cf. 1 John 4:19)?

How the environment of our society, our homes, and our churches would be transformed if more adorned themselves with the mantle of compassion. What do you think?

WHO data

The 10 leading causes of death in the world, 2000 and 2012

Ischemic heart disease, stroke, lower respiratory infections and chronic obstructive lung disease have remained the top major killers during the past decade.

HIV deaths decreased slightly from 1.7 million (3.2%) deaths in 2000 to 1.5 million (2.7%) deaths in 2012. Diarrhea is no longer among the 5 leading causes of death, but is still among the top 10, killing 1.5 million people in 2012.

Chronic diseases cause increasing numbers of deaths worldwide. Lung cancers (along with trachea and bronchus cancers) caused 1.6 million (2.9%) deaths in 2012, up from 1.2 million (2.2%) deaths in 2000. Similarly, diabetes caused 1.5 million (2.7%) deaths in 2012, up from 1.0 million (2.0%) deaths in 2000.

George Washington Slept Here

“I not being so good a woodsman as the rest of my Company striped my self very orderly and went in to the Bed as they called it when to my Surprise I found it to be nothing but a Little Straw—Matted together [and] one Thread Bear blanket with double its Weight in Vermin such as Lice and Fleas etc.”

Thus George Washington, at age 16, confided to his diary. The year was 1748. He was largely self-taught, far from home, trying to learn the surveyor’s trade.

Eventually the father of his country would sleep in a very great number of beds, so that one of them seems suitable enough as an object at hand. All through the 1750s he traveled the Western wilderness, first as a surveyor, then as a colonial officer. He had two horses shot from under him in battle, helping England fight France for possession of the continent. After some years building up Mount Vernon as a farm, in May 1775 he was off to Philadelphia as a delegate to the Continental Congress. He would be back soon, he wrote Martha after he left Mount Vernon, but it was eight and a half years before he got home for good.

Fight for the Future

I should say: “We all want a better Future” ‘Fight’ is so cheap, everyone knows how to fight, and seems somehow they like it, strange! Strange for me, a world without any fight, without any war… can you Imagine it? Anyhow, I got mail. I copy/past it, may you like it.


Click here to vote for Fight for the Future! Help support our work without having to donate!
Dear Fight for the Future member,
You probably don’t know this about me, but before I came to work here at Fight for the Future, I was a touring musician for about eight years, and traveled all over playing quirky acoustic punk songs in basements and bookstores, sometimes with my kid in tow. He’s four now and has been to 14 countries while on tour with me.
It was a blast, and I feel so lucky that I got to travel so much sharing my art with the world. But as you might assume, it wasn’t exactly the most lucrative profession.
So today I wanted to send out a very special shout out to all the people on our email list who love the Internet and are ready to fight for it, but are too broke to donate!
Hey, we’ve all been there. But here’s the awesome thing: this month, we got picked by CREDO Mobile to receive donations from them, just based on how many votes we get.
Here’s your chance! You can help us get desperately needed funds to support our work for net neutrality, online privacy, and internet freedom WITHOUT HAVING TO DONATE. Just click here and check the box to vote for “Fight for the Future.”
It takes less than a minute to vote, and it could mean the difference of tens of thousands of dollars in donations that we desperately need to combat urgent threats to online free speech. From Big Cable’s attacks on net neutrality, to the looming threat of CISPA-type legislation, to the “secret SOPA” Trans-Pacific Partnership deal, we’ll use every penny of the funds that CREDO gives us to battle for the future of the Internet as a free and open platform where we can express ourselves and exchange ideas
For me, saving the Internet is personal. I know that I never would have been able to travel all over the world playing music and creating political art if I didn’t have access to the open Internet, and the ability to use it to connect to my audiences online and off. If we lose that freedom, we’ll lose a lot more than funny cat videos. We’ll lose so much creativity, expression, and innovation – the stuff that shapes what tomorrow will be like.
That’s why I’m proud to get up every day and work at Fight for the Future, and that’s why I hope you’ll help keep us fighting.
If you’re NOT a starving artist or otherwise broke, we’re counting on you!
Please click here to chip in $10 (or more!)
And if you’re one of us going paycheck to paycheck, we salute you! You can still help by clicking here and voting for Fight for the Future to receive funds from CREDO Mobile this month!
Thanks so much! So glad to have you on Team Internet.
Love,
-Evan at Fight for the Future
P.S. We want to give a very special shout out and thanks to CREDO, and not even really because they picked us to receive donations this month. They’re not only one of the few wireless companies that support Title II net neutrality (both they themselves and the bigger network they piggyback on) but they’ve been core partners in the coalition organizing to win it. They’re one of the only companies that are so serious about opposing NSA surveillance, they agreed with us that the USA Freedom Act didn’t go far enough. When few other groups were willing to help, they threw down a donation for tents and food at Occupy the FCC. So, thanks CREDO!
Want more awesome more often?

Today Dutch news…

Wow! Men heeft een UFO op beeld weten te vangen bij de zon, die net zo groot als onze maan is.
Deze beelden hebben verbluffende details.
Toen men op 24 december 2014 de Helioviewer online bekeek, was het goed zichtbaar dat deze driehoek de zon verliet.
Het vertrek van deze driehoek, veroorzaakte een flinke zonnevlam explosie.

Is dit weer de zoveelste ruimteschip in de serie die de zon gebruikt om bij te tanken?
