Pray for the Church in Lebanon

Here is an important blog post from the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary in Beirut, Lebanon.  There is a lot going on there, as you may have heard.

This was my comment:

As an American Christian with roots in Jordan, I want to say AMEN to Nabil Habiby’s wise counsel.  Jesus is the LORD of Lords, the KING of kings.  Therefore there is no escaping the political implications of the Gospel.  Moreover, the primary political significance of the Gospel is what happens when the governor repents of his sins and gives honor to the One to whom honor is due: then there is political freedom!  How then can the church neglect her prophetic role in society?

The American church is praying for you.  Courage, my brothers and sisters!  God is with us!
