yea Greg I saw this on ABC nightly news .....uh no.

Please let us pray for the Copts in Egypt. I know people there. Pray that they would come to truly know the Lord that their death and suffering may count for God.

What do you think about the Christians getting into fighting with the muslims, even if they didn't start it? They need prayer not only for their protection but so that they will not dishonour the Lord in their conduct.

This is probably why Iran was so vocal about the positive outcome of the overthrow of Egypt.

God have mercy,
