Concern and Support for Iraqi Christians Forced by Militants to Flee Mosul - NYTimes.com →

less news-ish and more of a human approach, still worth reading

by-grace-of-god:

For the first time in the history of Iraq, Mosul is now empty of Christians
The message played over loudspeakers gave the Christians of Iraq’s second-largest city until midday Saturday to make a choice: convert to Islam, pay a tax or face death.
Pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters

ISIS marks letter “N” (ن) for “Nasrani” (term for Christian) on Assyrian Christian homes in Mosul [x]

This is beyond terrifying.

Lord have mercy.

lalaaa4:

Two people denied Jesus the night before His death: Judas & Peter. Both wept for their mistake.

What was the difference between the two?

Judas turned away from God & judged himself. Peter repented, went back to God, & let Him forgive & restore him.

Never underestimate the power of Jesus to forgive & restore.

God never changes his mind about the people he calls. He never decides to take back the blessings he has given them.
— Romans 11:29

this is so important
