There is a report on CBN about an Ohio teenager who has fled her home in fear of her life. Her family is muslim. She has converted to christianity. She is now in Florida seeking protection because she says her father will kill her for converting to christianity. Now this could be just a lie on the girls part and she just wants to runaway. I do not know.However if it is true then this is something that should not be here in the land of the free and the home of the brave.If anyone else can see this story either on CBN or through world net daily I would like to know your take on it.God bless.
Here's a link to the report. It was also reported on Good Morning America this morning.I still don't know if this is real or just a teenager making something up.http://www.christianpost.com/article/20090812/ex-muslim-teen-fears-family-honor-killing-in-u-s/index.html
I, too, read the article but have no opinion because I do not know all the facts. The possibility that it is as the girl claims is very real. And it could also be that she is just another runaway, running from parental authority. This is one of those stories that I will file to the back of my brain for later retrieval once the situation demands it. Someone is obviously wrong but at the moment I do not know who it is. So, I will not fret about something that is beyond my scope of assistance, but will allow it to teach me [i]something[/i].This is my take on it..ginnyrose
Lets assume for the moment that it is true. The odd's are in that favor because this has happened to varying degrees here in the states and especially overseas.The continued increase in muslim families coming to America presents many oppurtunities. First, we don't have to travel oversea's to share the gospel with them, they are here! Next the primary ones to hear that gospel will be the children. Through friends at school and being invited to youth meetings etc. Now lets say that the child converts. If the parents are strict in islam they will not like this at all. Some of us who may have to deal with the previous scenario need to be praying for wisdom on handling it. This is a very real potential for some of us to be experincing as we continue forward. this current incident in the headlines helps bring this to the forefront of some of our minds to pray and think on.Many years ago Robert Morrey published a book about Islam gaining ground in America. At the time I was not interested for various reasons. I see now that that book ,even though I have not read it, was a warning and wake up for the church in Amercia. I often respond to late to warnings and wake ups. However Islam in America is a growing mission field for us. God is sending them to us that they might be saved!! Lets do all we can to be ready to share the Gospel. God bless.
Florida court to decide today fri 8/21 weather to send girl back to family.http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=107483
So I guess there are some who are not sure about whether she is telling the truth or not because of some accusations.I will go out on a limb here and say that I believe her. I watched the video and believe that I discern that she has a very strong devotion to God. For instance her boldness which is rare.Also, even if she weren't telling the truth. There is also evidence of her being beaten.So whether she wants to run away for being a Christian or for being beaten either one is okay with me. The girl is 17 for crying out loud shes almost 18. At least just suspend her case and keep her in foster care until she is 18. It would seem ridiculous for her parents to have so much control over her because of the states law.I think this is a big thing and many Christians are being awakened to it and praying for her. Poor girl I ask for a strong grace on her behalf to glorify Jesus Christ.
Good words anonymity. I think your right.Also the judge ruled to keep girl in florida. Next hearing is in September.http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=107594
