Conclusion to Nov. 10, 2013 blog

Finally, the recent developments in the Middle East, all suggest the uncertainty of a Christian future despite the official effort of the church to stand for them.

This is why it is a duty and a conscience matter for all people of good will, especially Christians in America, to make sure that our local government takes in consideration the official demand and objective fear the church has for Christian existence in the Middle East.

There are lots of conspiracies in regard to changing maps in the Middle East, however, it is crucial that the presence of Christians in the Middle East, the protection of their freedom and their lives and properties, must become a priority on our end for the Christian character could represent a peaceful and modern way of a real change that is needed to promote democracy and freedom in the Middle East.

The most obvious challenge to Christianity in Lebanon and in the Middle East is the ignorance, the absence of sympathy and lack of awareness of Western Christians to the fact that Christianity is not a past phenomenon in the Middle East. Christianity is the heart of the Middle East. Christianity is vivid and alive. Christianity is looking forward to a bright future toward peace, a universal church and promotion of bridging unity of all Christians in the world. Through them, life with other religions becomes a common heritage of conviviality and coexistence all to honor and worship the same God. Christians in the Middle East can teach others about the religious freedom, the individual freedom and the education in democracy and faithfulness to a modern state.

What is happening with Christians in the Middle East, Syria and Lebanon suggests that Christians in the West have become very poor in their learning ability and awareness about the true practice of Catholicism. It suggests confusion in the process of an identity struggle between an individualistic religion and practice, and a responsible behavior to show unity, church adherence and concrete practice of the faith all to promote justice, peace, and love toward all people of good will despite their religious or ethnic preference.
