Christians Under Attack in Egypt Are Concerned but Not Afraid
One American man and his sons were also among those murdered by Islamic radicals in the bus attack on Coptic Christians in Egypt last week.
The World View asked William Stark of International Christian Concern if the government does protect Christians from these attacks. He said they do and they don’t.
“You have the one side where I’d say, ‘Yes absolutely the government is interested in protecting Christians especially as it relates to terrorists or terrorists attacking Christians.’
“The other side of that you could say, ‘No though, the Egyptian government is not interested in protecting Christians because the rights of Christians have consistently been curtailed or denied by the government.’”
Stark said that despite the attacks the Christians in Egypt are concerned but not afraid.
The Apostle John says, “This is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.”

Neosho, Missouri Keeps Cross in City Park Despite Atheist Opposition
The city of Neosho in Missouri has refused to remove a cross from their public park despite pressure from the atheist group, Freedom From Religion Foundation, according to The Christian Post. The city released a letter last Friday stating, “It is the unanimous opinion of the city council that the city of Neosho will not remove the cross or take any other actions which in any way compromises the long standing history of our city.”
1 Corinthians 1:18 says, “For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”
