Sarasota, Florida Event: What You Need to Know to Help Stop the Global Persecution of Christians

If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you – John 15:18

If you truly want to understand who hates Christians, why they persecute them, what drives their hate, where persecution is happening, and, most importantly, what you can do to stop the hate, come to a special presentation by Israeli professor Dr. Mordecai Kedar, either 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. or 8:00 – 9:30 p.m., on Tuesday, February 3, 2015, at the Waldemere Fire Station 2nd floor, 2070 Waldemere Street, Sarasota. This event is in collaboration with the Sarasota Ministerial Association, Sarasota Patriots, Humanity Working to End Genocide and Zionist Organization of America of Sarasota-Manatee.

Christians like to believe that all cultures have exactly the same goals (peace, prosperity, freedom) and exactly the same values (human life, honesty, human rights). And although all of these goals and values are undoubtedly part of every human culture, not all cultures value them to the same degree that we do in the Christian world.

Daily we read about Christians being driven from their homes, from their churches and even from the country of their birth. We watch, in disbelief, horrible atrocities being committed against Christians. Christian children being sold into slavery, churches burned to the ground, and even Christian’s crucified.

Our prayers seem to go unanswered for our Christian brothers and sisters. So what can we do to stop this hate filled madness?

Dr. Kedar has answers to your many questions. He brings with him a clear understanding of what is behind this growing hate and clear threat to Christians and the Church.

The event is open to the public. RSVPs may be sent to kedar.rsvp@gmail.com or via voice/text to (941) 225-9112.
