Hal Lindsey -> The migrant crisis in Europe
The results of the migrant crisis in Europe have lately been dominating the headlines. That’s mainly because some European nations are being forced to take steps to reverse the damage.
In fact, some of the more liberal, multiculture-oriented nations are being overwhelmed by the human tsunami they have welcomed into their midst.
But one of the more alarming and surprising results of this liberality is manifesting itself in Sweden. A recent study shows that for every 100 Swedish girls ages 16-17, there are now 123 boys. This disparity only portends problems down the road for Sweden.
To put this into perspective, look at China. The world recognizes the problems heading China’s way because of its longtime “one-child” policy, with its subsequent forced abortions, and the Chinese preference for boys over girls. In fact, Bloomberg reports that, “China now has 33 million more men than women, tens of millions of whom may never be able to find a mate.”
China has long been thought to be the nation facing the greatest crisis in this regard. That’s why it’s disturbing to realize that China’s ratio of 117 boys to every 100 girls is substantially lower than Sweden’s!
Has Sweden quietly pursued a longtime “one-child” policy of which the world has been unaware? No. Sweden’s problem is that it has accepted vast numbers of migrants from the Middle East. In fact, it receives more asylum applications per capita than any other country in Europe.
But why should that affect the general demographic make-up of Sweden? The simple answer is that young men and boys in their upper teens comprise the vast majority of Muslim migrants. The truth is that the numbers of migrants (contrary to what the media will have you believe) are so skewed toward men and boys that it has altered Sweden’s male-female ratio even more than China’s longtime policy of forced abortion has altered its demographic.
And whether or not they are actually terrorists, few of these healthy young males actually come to the west to be assimilated. They bring with them the roots of the very evil they say they’re fleeing.
Unfortunately, a perfect example of this problem occurred on New Year’s Eve last year in Cologne, Germany. In the public areas around the city’s main train station and city center, hundreds of German women were groped, robbed, and, in some cases, raped by bands of migrant thugs.
It was an unbelievable and shocking display that should have caused an enormous reaction across Europe. But it didn’t. Why? Because the European mainstream media ignored or suppressed the story for days.
And why did they do that? Especially regarding a frightening incident that flies in the face of all that is traditionally “European?”
One answer: Political Correctness.
The leftist governments of Europe, along with the European Union, are committed to the fiction that the millions of Muslim migrants are nice people who can be trusted and should be welcomed with open arms. And the European mainstream media is playing ball.
So they sat on the story. As a result, no one knows how many German women were robbed or raped when they unwittingly entered danger zones that the news media should have, but refused to, warn them about.
And this stuff is going on all over Europe. Everywhere the Islamic migrants have gone. For example, over the last two years, there has been a pronounced spike in rape cases in Norway.
But even more disturbing to me is that politically-correct European authorities are attempting to dismiss the connection. A police chief in Norway excused the migrants by saying that, “People from some parts of the world have never seen a girl in a miniskirt, only in a burqa.”
So rape is okay because the rapists are from a different culture?
Even Cologne’s mayor – a woman – apparently felt it was politically incorrect to blame the Muslim attackers. So she blamed the victims.
Folks, this is where Political Correctness leads. Directly to the times the Bible warns us about, when the right will be called wrong and the wrong will be called right.
I believe that Political Correctness gone amok is hastening the demise of Christian Europe.
In view of what I see happening in Europe, I’ve recently been thinking about the blessing of literacy. Yes, literacy. The ability to read and write.
In 1820, only 12% of the world’s adults could read and write. By 2000, 80% of the world’s adults could read and write.
That fact alone explains much about how the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been able to reach the far corners of this world. The gift of easy access to the Word of God – whether as a printed book or an application on your smartphone – is a blessing beyond human calculation.
But I’m afraid it is a blessing we take far too lightly.
For two thousand years, Christians have been imprisoned and martyred for believing and teaching God’s Word. No other book – or cause – has motivated so many to sacrifice so much, including most of the first Christian evangelists.
On this week’s program, I’m going to draw from the pages of my book, The Terminal Generation, to remind us of those who have sacrificed everything to prepare, preserve, and promote the Word of God throughout the world and to all of the following generations. We owe them a debt of gratitude only God can repay.
