Christians in Samaritan’s Purse help Muslims in Iraqi War Zones
At the Risk of Their Lives, …
OneNewsNow reported in a 1 December 2016 article that Christians representing Samaritan’s Purse have been fulfilling the command to “love your enemies” in a striking way:
“At the same time Iraqi military forces and ISIS fighters battle over the country’s second-largest city, a humanitarian group is helping refugees.
Samaritan’s Purse is at work in various refugee camps around the city of Mosul, handing out everything from blankets and food to shoes.
The well-known Christian relief organization, headed by Rev. Franklin Graham, may be best known for its annual shoe box drive for children.
Samaritan’s spokesman Ken Isaacs tells OneNewsNow the organization has been at work in Iraq since 2014, when ISIS took control of Mosul and spread its campaign of murder and torture.

Christianity was born in persecution, but did not strike back. These towns and cities have seen many killed, but one group that has been decimated has been the Christians. Therefore, for
Christianity grew out of a heavenly love given when it was not deserved.
|Oddly, when the Buzzfeed article came out
there was no indication as whether Chip or Joanna support or oppose gay marriage
Christians Stand Up for Biblical Values
In a 1 December 2016 OneNewsNow article, Chris Woodward and Billy Davis explain the hubbub around the stars of “Fixer Upper.”
“The pushback is coming from all corners after left-wing website BuzzFeed published a hit piece about a Christian husband and wife featured on HGTV.
‘BuzzFeed’s hit piece on Chip and Joanna Gaines is dangerous,’ declared a Washington Post op-ed headline written by an openly homosexual writer, Brandon Ambrosino.
The husband and wife (pictured above), who host the popular ‘Fixer Upper’ show, were criticized in a Nov. 30 story that asked rhetorically if they hold the same views about marriage as their church pastor, Jimmy Seibert.
The Gaines family attends Antioch Community Church, which the left-wing story describes as a ‘nondenominational, evangelical, mission-based megachurch.’ The church is located in Waco.
The suspected hit piece runs approximately 1,100 words. Approximately 800 words describe Siebert’s June 2015 sermon about homosexuality that followed the U.S. Supreme Court’s Obergefell decision.
‘This is almost unbelievable,’ radio show host Tony Perkins observed on his ‘Washington Watch’ radio show. ‘It appears the media thinks they have stumbled on something – that there is actually a church in Texas that believes the Bible and is not willing to surrender their views of the Supreme Court of the United States.’
It also appears, Perkins said, citing the story, that if someone attends that church, ‘they somehow have no right to host a TV show in America.’
In his op-ed piece, Ambrosino also predicts BuzzFeed is intentionally trying to force HGTV to publicly address the couple’s views.
‘They also know that if the statement is not 100 percent supportive of same-sex marriage,’ he writes, ‘the network will be pressured to drop them.’
BuzzFeed, in fact, telegraphed its intentions, asking if the Gaineses are ‘against’ same-sex marriage and, if so, would they feature homosexuals on their show.
Tim Graham with the Media Research Center suspects that BuzzFeed went after the ‘Fixer Upper’ stars due to a surge in popularity. They were featured on the cover of ‘People’ magazine and have published a best-selling book among other feats.
According to BuzzFeed’s own article, in fact, the Gaineses ‘have built a small empire, and they are not done yet.’
‘And so that becomes an excuse to say, Oh, well now that you’ve reached this level of celebrity, as opposed to where you were, I don’t know three months ago, suddenly this is a relevant issue,’ complains Graham.
Graham points out that BuzzFeed is owned by Comcast, which is known for its support for homosexual activism.
‘So there is no doubt where they are coming from,’ he warns.
Another theory about BuzzFeed’s pursuit of the Gainses is liberals’ petty, post-election anger after Donald Trump’s win. That suggestion comes after a Twitter conversation in which Daily Beast writer Kevin Fallon complained about voters who chose Trump.
‘My blood-boiling suspicion that every couple featured voted for Trump has ruined House Hunters for me,’ he observes, referring to an HGTV program.
‘And Fixer Upper,’ replies Kate Aurthur, the BuzzFeed writer who, days later, published a story about the Gaineses.
The hit piece garnered a commentary by Todd Starnes at Fox News, who published a response from HGTV about the BuzzFeed story.”
