Have you seen this?
If you haven’t take five minutes and do so. This is a reminder to those of us who see our brothers in Christ being martyred for their faith. We have the ultimate weapon against this war, and that is the Gospel. The Gospel turns enemies into brothers and brings peace where there is war, hope where there is hate.
Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you— unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received:that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, 1Cor.15:1-4
Share the gospel.

Turning to politics Alabama Supreme Court Judge Roy Moore was recently honored by 7000 African-American ministers and given a MLK based award ( Letter From Birmingham Jail Courage Award) his stand on traditional marriage. The pastors said this about Justice Moore:
“By making a principled and persuasive stand for marriage, Justice Moore has singled himself out as someone who is ready to defend our most cherished values and help lead this new civil rights movement,” the coalition said. “By his words and actions, he has helped preserve marriage, the family, justice, and the spirit of democracy. This is what it means to be a ‘Letter from Birmingham a Jail Courage Award’ recipient. We hope that his example inspires others to take similar action to defend marriage in their own communities.”
