EDIT: Updated the post to include myth #4.
Here is a sad report from the European Union Parliament President. It states Christians are not safe in Europe. A highlight from the article:
“No religious community is as subject to hatred, violence and systematic aggression as the Christians,” he said.
Another fascinating quote
“It should shake us up,” said Schulz, “that on our continent, Christians are not safe.”
However sad the persecution is it stems from false ideas that Christians are invaders, specifically to Muslims, the so-called religion of peace.
Another speaker, auxiliary bishop Jean Kockerols of Brussels, said that the idea that Christians are intruders in certain Muslim-dominated countries must be debunked, since the Christian presence in the Middle East and the Indian sub-continent “dates back to centuries before the spread of the Koran.”
I think the Bishop Kockerols is highlighting a larger point: no longer can Christians remain silent about the myths and the lies perpetrated against it by God’s eternal enemy—Satan. Specifically, I believe that these myths are:
- Christianity is an invading religion.
- Christians do not have the right to participate in the political process.
- Christians are supposed to be peaceful because Jesus said, “Turn the other cheek.”
- Christians speaking truth regarding Biblical Sin are espousing hate speech and intolerance.
