The systematic destruction of a racial, ethnic, religious or national group is called GENOCIDE. Atrocities are NOT perpetrated by GOD, but by the evil hearts of man. People like Galileo were persecuted and killed because they lived by the teachings of the Bible instead of "officially sanctioned" Church teachings. Many try to convince us that Christians are no different than other religions in committing these atrocities. JESUS addressed the issue "OF IN THE NAME OF GOD" in a chilling prophecy, Matthew 7:22-23, "... I never knew you; depart from ME..." GENOCIDE goes far beyond the Jewish in WWII and Slavery; China 35 million, U.S.S.R. 61 million, Slavery 17 million and American Indians 14 million. Does our silence encourage our government to remove Chapels from government buildings, to place covers over the NAME OF JESUS during political speeches, and silence prayer in public places? OH WHAT WE ALLOW IN THE NAME OF GOD!
