I don't know, is that a good remark?

Report them to the FBI. That's what I did.
Is that a good remark too?

Not dispair.

Our flesh is to be poured out, and if they are to be killed then we pray they hold fast to their faith.

The Blood of saints has watered the roots of the church from the beginning, why should we assume it shouldn't now?

Pray for them, use political leverage, join in their sufferings, but in all things have faith in a God who raises the dead and makes all things new.

About 10 years ago a feminist princess from the Saud family had books written about equal rights for women in Saudi Arabia while all the time showing in the book their family had a maid and "servants." It's a shame that the author put her focus on Saudi women's rights while overlooking the Christian slaves that weren't allowed to leave the property. That was a gross oversight of misjustice for a dollar.

There are only 2 things that I think we can do. PRAY and financially help the Christian organizations that are helping at least some of the children to be returned to their parents. Although other children are kidnapped and badly treated I believe that this report is specific about the children of Christians and simply BECAUSE they are Christians.

M.P. I lived in the Punjab for two years and was a member of a Christian community there. This has been going on for years. The faces are the same but the name of the organizations have changed. But we must pray for all the children regardless of religion. One of bushs biggest allies, Saudi Arabia, is the biggest importer of these children but as long as we are getting oil Americans dont care. There are things that we can do but they entail sacrifice.

M.P., thanks for the info. Such situations need to be known by christians in order for us to pray. This is heartbreaking. Let us not be complacant and ignore such horrors, but lift up all in prayer. Our God is all powerful and able to do wonderful things even in such circumstances.

What can we do except to pray and pray and pray. And know that God is a righteous Judge ... He will take vengeance on these people if not here, then at the Great White Throne Judgement. I wonder just how much God's heart weeps when it is little innocent children this is being done to?

2. Whilst they are held they are beaten savagely, only fed once a day and ordered not to talk, play or pray. Some of these children have been rescued by Christian missionaries but the fate now of many is unknown. The parents of these children have NOT been misled into thinking that they are getting a good education, they know that they have been abducted.

Randy I don't think we are referring to the same thing here, although what you say is also appalling. The report I had stated that a leading member of a militant Islamic organization based in Pakistan, is funding its activities through the sale of CHRISTIAN children (6 12 y.o.) into slavery. They are abducted from their homes in remote Christian villages in the Punjab and kept in appalling conditions, until being sold for approximately $1,700 each into the sex trade or a life of domestic servitude.

M.P. I lived in Pakistan for two years and this is a common occurrence for children as young as 5, of all faiths of the poor in the third world. It was discovered that the boys were strapped to the camels during races to act as a jockey. If they lost they were left in the desert to die. Girls are used as domestics and sexual slaves. They are sent to the Gulf region. Their families think they are being sent off to go to a good school.

PRAY. Fast and pray, and do as the Spirit leads.
---christina on 5/26/06

We should be careful not to return evil for evil unto any man; but follow that which is good, both among ourselves and to all men. We should regret, and denounce all injustices, and rejoice when justice is carried out. We should rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation and constant in prayer. We should know that not even a bird falls from the sky without The Fathers knowledge, He cares for, sustains and has provided for those who love Him. Of this I am assured.
