In the book The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy talks about an SEP field. SEP stands for Someone Elses Problem. In the fantesy it's about how a space ship can land and activites happen and although people are looking right at it, since it's so far out of the realm of possibilites that they can accept to be reality, that they just don't see it. Although that's a fantesy created from the mind of an out of the mainstream guy, it certainly is relevant for todays situations. How often do things just get ignored because we choose to make it SOMEONE ELSES PROBLEM?

We're far advanced from the passerby witnessing an accident and then hurridly looking away and continuing on their journey because they don't want to "get involved!" Now it's a matter of ignoring poverty, racial injustice, hunger, you name it. All these things are going on around us and most of the time we don't even see or acknowledge it. I'm the KING at it when it comes to being in a small group and all of a sudden an overly ambitious Mom or Dad pulls out the next coupon book where I can win a mo-ped or a trip to Minneapolis or whatever for just a dollar donation. I think it's a rude thing to do and I don't give in anymore. I'm able to just smile and close up my papers and head out the door. HOWEVER on the other hand I do acknowledge and work for solving so many of the big SEP's that other ignore. Have you made something SOMEONE ELSE'S PROBLEM today?

Apathy is going to bring us DOWN

Abdul Rahman is just a regular Afghan guy. Only problem is that this regular guy decided to become a Christian. He was a Muslim, probably a good one! At some point he made a decision to accept Christ in his life. When he was questioned by Afghan police about something unimportant, they caught sight of his Bible. They asked him about it and he told them he had become a Christian, 16 years ago. NOW UNDER Muslim law in Afghanistan, he faces charges of being an infidel and being put to death.

His only hope to not be murdered is to be judged as being insane, because under Muslim law he's not responsible for his actions if he is not of sound mind.

How many billion dollars have we spent to support a government that would let this happen? This is a time for EVERY Christian person in the world to stand up and SHOUT THEIR OUTRAGE. This is unbelievable. Get a hold of your congressmen and ask them how they can support this, because if they keep quiet they are support this. UNBELIEVABLE You MUST TAKE ACTION! Talk to your friends, bring it up in your groups, contact your congressmen. Don't let this pass by.
