Finding Comfort in the Chaos

May 30, 2017
Finding Comfort in the Chaos
Egypt continues to be plagued with religious violence. On Friday, armed men fired on a bus full of Coptic Christians—more than twenty-five died in the attack. This is the fourth major assault against Copts in the last six months. In April, several churches were targeted in Alexandria during Palm Sunday services—forty-three were killed and scores injured.

These attacks have propelled the oppression of minority religions, largely Coptic Christian, to the forefront in the Middle East. Pope Francis recently visited Egypt in part to show solidarity with the Coptic Church, which makes up about 10 percent of the nation’s population. In the wake of this most recent atrocity, countries around the world, including the United States, and even those typically at odds with each other, are reaching out with messages of sympathy.

As Bible believers, we sympathize with those who have lost loved ones in these horrific attacks carried out in the name of religion. The faith of Christ calls for a response of forgiveness and efforts to restore peace. Jesus said, “Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you” (Matthew 5:44). God promises that He, the righteous Judge, will bring true justice (Revelation 6:10).

Jesus was clear that this world will continue to be filled with tribulation (John 16:33), such as the increasing destruction, persecution, and death we see all around us. In Daniel 12:1, we read that the end of time will see troubles that the world has never seen.

Where can we go to find peace in the midst of chaos? We can find comfort in God’s Word as we trust His amazing plan to bring a conclusion to the violent turmoil. You can discover more about God’s ultimate solution by clicking here.
