‘A Tragedy Beyond Description’: Syrian Christians ‘Exhausted’ From Islamic Persecution, Desperate Plight ‘Getting Bigger Day By Day’


Daniel 7:25a, “And he shall speak [great] words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws …”

Christian Today – “A Syrian Christian leader has spoken of the desperate plight of the church in the war-torn country.

Dr Mary Mikhael, of the National Evangelical Synod of Syria, said churches were being targeted in the conflict and that many Christians were being displaced.

As refugees, they lack adequate shelter, medicine, food supplies and ‘their human dignity’, she said.

Dr Mikhael was addressing commissioners at the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland meeting in Edinburgh this week.

She said there was no Arab Spring for the people of Syria but ‘only a stormy dark winter’.

In particular, she expressed concern that there would soon be no Christian presence in the country. ‘The tragedy is getting bigger day by day … Now the big question is about our future.’

Syrian churches are stepping in to help meet the needs of displaced people but she warned that they are ‘exhausted’.

‘Pray with us, be in solidarity with our church, help us bring hope to Syria,’ she said.

The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, the Right Reverend Lorna Hood paused proceedings to give commissioners a moment to pray about the situation.

She prayed: ‘Help us to stand beside them, to offer not only our prayers but all we can do as a Church to support them, to be with them and somehow through the power of your Spirit, the power of your love and your peace, bring once again peace and an end of strife and hardship to that land through Christ our Lord, Amen.’

Former Moderator, the Very Reverend Professor Iain Torrance said the situation in Syria was a ‘tragedy that is beyond description’.” Read more.

    Reblogged this on USA Zorro Press and commented:
    the elite have worldwide resources and taxpayer robbery funding and will never relent using Christian and Muslim clergy and troops to do their dirty genocide. Using HAARP, CHEMTRAILS, GMO’s just another genocide plan in progress on top of war terroristic killings. Christian clergy tell flock to shut up about genocide and war on Christians, as Muslims kill at elite whim.
