Not as Americans, but as Christians, when will the news we refuse to pay attention to finally start to jolt us? The New York Times has a picture at the top of their website showing body bags of a Syrian family. The report is death by nerve gas. Thousands, thousands, have perished in Syria. Hundreds, if not into the thousands, were killed just this week in Egypt.
I am not asking this as a matter of American intervention. I am asking this of me and other believers: When will the body count bother us? When we will be shocked the point of prayer? When will we cry out to God for solution, and then offer ourselves as a possible solution?
