Pakistani Christian Mom sentenced to death for blasphemy

       She was merely trying to share a  drink of water with her co-workers in the field, but they were not interested in water from a non-Muslim woman in Pakistan. The situation sparked an encounter, that led to accusations of blasphemy against a Pakistani Christian Mom of five. Asia Bibi has been sentenced to death under the country’s controversial blashemy laws.

     Asia has been in prison for over 15 months while there has been fierce outcry from human rights groups, religious organizations, and government representatives demanding her release and pardon. Yet, protests from other groups in  Pakistan have kept the president from pardoning this mom of five.  I first heard about this through CNN, and it brought tears to my eyes just thinking of this


mother’s weeping children and the loss they are facing. As  a Christian in Pakistan, this woman is in the minority and she is being persecuted for her beliefs.

     As an American believer, it is hard to understand the injustice that occurs in other countries against people for their beliefs. I pray that Asia’s life be spared and that the voice of these human rights  and religious groups — and especially her children– be heard. It makes me think of the early church and the persecution it faced. While we in America live such comfortable lives, believers in other countries live a much different reality. . . I feel so helpless when I hear of this kind of grave injustice in the world. I wonder, what can I do? For now, writing about it. May we always speak up for justice.

    The fear of God came upon all the kingdoms of the countries when they heard how the Lord had fought against the enemies of Israel. And the kingdom of Jehoshaphat was at peace, for His God had given him rest on every side. 2Chronicles20:29-30 I Believe that this is happening over in Pakistan & God has put an amazing peace & rest that the world cannot give to all His Beloved… His warring angels will continue to fight against the prince of Persia over this nation & this nation is declared Christ nation. Christ has already won the victory. Many has & will come & know Him through supernatural visitations from the Lord… Christians who have been martyled will be given a crown & a place to sit with Jesus.

    i wonder how that would inspire more people to become part of the islam religion! i guess this woman is just persecuted because of her Faith and this is an umbrella term and a hiding spot for the government to stand against christianity.
