As Christianity Today points out:
It can be easy for Western Christians to tune out violence in the
Middle East. It can seem to be both intractable and unending, while the
grievances on either side extend decades, even centuries, into the
past. Yet, the dimensions of any conflict in the region can affect
Christians differently. Lebanon has the largest percentage of
Christians of any country in the Middle East, and fighting between
Hezbollah and Israel in the country affect Christians differently than
in Gaza, where Hamas and Israel are also fighting. To understand how
locals view the current conflict, we've solicited and collected
articles from several Christians in Lebanon, Israel, and elsewhere.
We've also brought together other recent stories on Arab Christians
from around the Middle East.
Adventists have a long tradition of living and working in Lebanon.
There is much to understand and advocate for in this conflict. Reading Christianity Today's thoughtful articles provides a perspective that broadens the consequences of this conflict and leaves little room for Adventist silence. Or we just spend our time trying to figure out Daniel eleven again?
