A still frame from the 1919 documentary film Auction of Souls, which portrayed eye witnessed events from the Armenian Genocide, including crucified Christian girls.
Two days ago, the Saint Basil family prayed a memorial service for the victims of the Pontian Genocide. A genocide that is almost unknown to our society and has been completely ignored by our education system. It is imperative that we recognize and affirm that genocide is abhorrent and evil… even genocides aimed at Christian communities.
Rare exposure is offered to the reality of Christian genocides — even genocides that have taken place in our lifetime. If we are unable to recognize blatant acts of evil attacking Christianity, how will we ever address the covert attacks on Christianity that mock the reality of Truth: many expressions of social justice that root truth upon the benchmark of human feelings rather than the Word of God, Who is Truth (John 14:6).
Let us ask for the prayers of the Christian martyrs to embolden contemporary Christian with courage and common sense.
