Daughter Of Christian Woman On Death Row In Pakistan Reveals Her Hell At Hands Of Religious Fanatics

Two young daughters of a Pakistani Christian woman on death row for 'blasphemy' today told how they were tortured by a mob of religious fanatics because of their mother's alleged comments.

Asia Bibi has been sentenced to hang in Pakistan after she was accused of making disparaging remarks about the prophet Mohammed during an argument.

"It's Not Our Place To Tell Anyone How They Should Live" - New York Hillsong Pastor Carl Lentz Speaks

Hillsong Church's New York location reportedly draws "a lot of gay men and women" among the thousands who flock there every weekend, according to head pastor Carl Lentz.

"Jesus was in the thick of an era where homosexuality, just like it is today, was widely prevalent," Lentz told CNN in a June interview (above). "And I'm still waiting for someone to show me the quote where Jesus addressed it on the record in front of people. You won't find it because he never did."

Lentz's wife, Laura, added: "It's not our place to tell anyone how they should live. That's their journey."

The Week's Message: 7 Things We Can All Learn From Ruth

A brief background of Ruth to appreciate her story:

Ruth is not your ideal woman.

She was a Moabite. Moabites were descendants of Lot from an incestuous relationship with his oldest daughter.

Ruth was looked down upon because she was a woman (women were once considered a property, a little higher than cows in their society)

She’s a widow.

She remained faithful to her mother-in-law, Naomi. Braving the nasty things people said about her and the cruel treatment she received, she went out to glean the barley fields of her late husband’s kin Boaz.

Boaz heard of Ruth’s goodness from his people.
Boaz saw how Ruth cared for her mother-in-law.
Boaz had known Ruth’s loyalty, diligence, determination, and perseverance.
Naomi advised Ruth to dress up and sleep at Boaz’s feet.
The rest as they say is history.

7 Things We Can All Learn From Ruth:
1. Ruth’s priority was not to wait for someone to redeem her after her husband died leaving her with no children. Sort out your priorities. Don’t wait for other people—especially for men to validate your existence.
