Red Cross in Belgium to Remove Its Iconic Crucifixes to Not Offend Non-Christians

Wednesday, December 6, 2017 | Tag Cloud Tags: , , , ,

(Worthy News) - The Belgian branches of the Red Cross have been told they must remove the organization's iconic red crosses from building walls amid concerns that the Christian symbol will offend non-Christians.

Breitbart News reported Monday on a translation of a 7sur7 article where André Rouffart, president of the Red Cross in Verviers, reveals that the Belgian branches were asked by the Provincial Committee of the Red Cross in Liège to "respect the principles of the Red Cross" of religious neutrality and remove the cross because it might offend Muslims.

The Red Cross was founded in the 19th century by Jean-Henry Dunant, a devout Christian who was also part of the creation of the Young Men's Christian Association. [ Source: Christian Post (Read More...) ]

  1. Why are they rejecting Christ??? Muslim nations do not remove crescent on their offices why do you do this? ?? Everyone shall carry his own cross.

  2. Luk 7:21 And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.
    Luk 7:22 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.
    Luk 7:23 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

  3. "When the wicked sprout like weeds and all the wrongdoers flourish, it is that they may be destroyed forevermore." Psalm 92:7
    For you yourselves are fully aware that tha day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, "There is peace and security," then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:2-3
    All the signs of the last days are upon this wicked world. People do not even know right from wrong anymore and what's worse, they don't care.
    I once heard that only 2% of Europeans attended church. This was 15 years ago. Could it be worse now? It appears so!
    Where I live you cannot drive over 1 mile without passing a church and yet the (Christian) church in America has a higher divorce rate that those who do not attend.
    There are a lot of problems in this world, but the worse is that less and less people are believing in Almighty God and society is falling apart because of it. All of this is foretold in Gods Holy Word. It is the source of all truth. If folks would just read it.
    Perhaps someone is reading this now and is wondering about the existence of Jehova God. Maybe you've never believed and think you don't want to. See if you have the guts to do this right now. Ask God to show Himself in some tangible way to you in your life.
    Lord, In these last days pour out Your spirit and save those who are lost. Strengthen those who are Yours Lord. In the name of Jesus Christ. The name that is above "every" name, Amen!
