Christian missionary group with pig’s head taunt Arab-Americans


Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 6,

 “..as workers together with Him (God)……We give no offense in anything, that our ministry may not be blamed. But in all things we commend ourselves as ministers of God: in much patience, in tribulations, in needs, in distresses, in stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in fastings; by purity, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit, by sincere love, by the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, by honor and dishonor, by evil report and good report; as deceivers, and yet true; as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold we live; as chastened, and yet not killed; as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things”

Sadly these “missionaries” in Dearborn Michigan are not workers together with Him, but in fact bring reproach upon the Gospel, 

quote,

Tensions flared Friday evening at the annual Arab International Festival in Dearborn as members of some Christian missionary groups — including one called the Bible Believers — taunted Arab Americans with a pig’s head and signs that promoted hatred of Islam. “You’re gonna burn in hell,” one missionary shouted at a group of young Arab-American boys listening to him speak on Warren Avenue, where the festival takes place. The festival continues today in Dearborn, but the members of the Bible Believers won’t be there because they’ll be protesting a gay festival in Ohio, said Arab Festival organizers.

The three-day festival is the largest public gathering of Arab-Americans in the U.S.; it has drawn Christian missionaries for years, but in 2009, some become more aggressive, leading to arrests and legal feuds. Dearborn has the highest concentration of Arab-Americans in the U.S., many of them Muslim, making it a magnet for some Christian missionaries. The Bible Believers also protested at last year’s Arab Festival, holding up both anti-Muslim and anti-Catholic signs…  About a dozen with the group stood facing the festival on Friday with signs that made bigoted remarks about Islam and its prophet, Mohammed. One of the missionaries had a pig’s head mounted on a pole that he displayed in front of his group. (Detroit Free Press)

  1. I like the fact they just assume that because they’re Arabs they must be Muslims, beyond the fact of spreading a gospel of hate that is no gospel at all.

    I remember something about loving your enemy and laying down your life for him/her, let alone regular people of the community of darker skin, I guess we’re reading different Scriptures.

    • they just assume that because they’re Arabs they must be Muslims

      Cal, i thought about that too. Guess no one’s informed them there are Arab Christians.

  2. I had literally just read this before logging on here.
    It makes me ashamed to be called a ‘christian’ which AT ONE TIME signified a true follower of Jesus but sadly no more😦

    • Amen Sylvia. It should make us all ashamed.😦

      Those who wrongly portray the Gospel and our Lord like this, will answer for it one day. In the meantime we should publicly call them out for their actions!!

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
