"Beyond Anything I Have Ever Seen"

It's a sobering truth: while we have so much religious freedom in America, there are others, in nations not too far from us, who are tortured and murdered for the faith so many of us take for granted.


"Dr. Kim," the director of VOMedical, has been a medical professional for more than three decades. He's worked emergency rooms and performed autopsies. But none of the horrors he has encountered measures up to the devastation he found after radical Muslims attacked Dogo Nahawa and two other northern Nigerian villages last March.


Just take a moment and watch this short video:





Just listen to the song they are singing at the end. Here are the lyrics in English:


’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
And to know, “Thus saith the Lord!”
  • Refrain:
    Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
    How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er;
    Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
    Oh, for grace to trust Him more!



How powerful! If you are an atheist, just watch this and know that there is power in the word of God, sustaining power that gives real meaning to life and love. If you are a Christian, just remember these stalwart Christians when you are mocked in chat-rooms, avoided by influential people, and stereotyped within an inch of your life. Stand strong, knowing that the same God who is carrying these people through their pain and misery is the one Who can stand by you in yours.
