A Christian Perspective on the Syria Situation

on September 8, 2013

We are just days away from watching the United States Congress take a vote on whether or not to take military action in Syria. Our president is adamant that this is the best decision, but the vast majority of Americans vehemently disagree. I have spent a lot of time studying the situation in Syria and I thought I would share my thoughts on it from a Christian perspective.

First of all, let’s look at what’s happening in Syria right now. The Assad regime is undeniably cruel and no one doubts that this leader is not good for either Syria as a nation or for relations in the Middle East. However, Al Qaeda is heading the rebel uprising in Syria. These are the same Islamic extremists that are executing Christians by the thousands. They are brutally beating people including women and children. They are torching churches throughout the Middle East and proudly working towards an Ethnic cleansing to eliminate all Jews and Christians.

A few weeks ago, a chemical attack in Syria left thousands dead, including a lot of children. According to our president, this attack was carried out by the Assad regime. However, much of the world says the rebels were responsible. Now our president wants us to take action against Assad by basically pairing up with the Al Qaeda rebel forces. Since when does America fight on the side of Islamic extremists? Since when do you help the people that are burning churches and publicly executing Christians in brutal ways?

As a Christian, I call for the United States to stand down. I fear that we are facing a red line of a whole different kind right now… the red light of God’s judgment.
