Carrying Others' Burdens

Highlighting the charitable work of the Friess Family Foundation and promoting worthwhile causes the world over

When you do it for the least of my brethren, you do it for Me. — Matthew 25:35-40

Know someone who would like this?
What do you think we should do about the War on Christianity?

After my recent visit to Israel, I scratch my head why some mainline denominations are encouraging divesting in companies that have business with Israel, yet are missing in action when it come to the War on Christianity.

Does this puzzle you as well and what should we be doing about it?  I’d like to see America “Arm the Kurds.” They are willing to be the “boots on the ground” while we provide ammo and air cover.  Why not?

Here is link to pertinent article.

    Foster, about 100 years ago Muslims woke up to the fact that if they pretty much operated under the laws of free countries like America’s claiming only to be a religion, the could freely expand not only undeterred by law enforcement, or the military, but in fact being protected by them. Every Mosque is nothing more than a planned geographical location to spread their influence. As long as crude oil remains above around $40 a barrel, the oil buying world is paying Muslims to expand their influence to take over the world. in addition to Mosques they have established training facilities. There are some 42 plus Muslim/jihadist training camps just in America. In 1972, on my first staff duty in the U.S. Navy, I was assigned the collateral duty of being the staff anti-terrorist warfare officer. In the days our teachers/instructors were people with 50 years of experience in dealing with entities intent upon the destruction of America. It’s when I learned about the Muslim declaration in 1926 “One God, One Aim, One Destiny” by the “Universal Islamic Society” in Detroit; the one Jimmy Carter is speaking at this week. Today they have infiltrated every government entity; they have access to our most precious secrets; our personal information including financial’, military & government service; and any legal information. In the past three years, I have been invited to speak to small group of international investment bankers. For my first talk they asked me to talk about the subject, “Can America Recover?” Two years later it was “Can America Survive?” The easy answer is “Yes” but will we? Our greatest opportunity for the economy is domestic energy using American technology by American citizens to become energy & economically secure. The government just needs to get out of the way of our private sector. To do that we need politicos who live by their Oath of Office under our Constitution. That means get rid of all Democrats to start. Richard McPherson

    You may not remember me, but we sat together at the Wilmington (DE) Rotary luncheon two years ago. I am the headmaster of Wilmington Christian School. This note is to let you know how much I enjoy reading your blog and, in particular, this one asking the question, “What should we do about the war on Christianity?” I may be biased because of the ministry I have been called to, but I truly believe that without a commitment to the education of the next generation in a Biblical worldview (Psalm 78), we will experience a downturn in faith in our country (already?). I believe God is sovereign and He will not allow His Kingdom to be moved, yet, in the USA, we are seeing a deliberate turn away from godly thinking and biblical values in our young people’s education. The Christian school movement is taking it on the chin. I believe it’s time to rally the troops around the banner of education and those children yet to be born. The home, the church, and the Christian school form that cord of three strands not easily broken.
    Foster, you know of our school and it’s long heritage for the Gospel in the education of this next generation. We could sure use your help in securing our future…
    Peace be with you

    I am a Christian. Where is the national group of American men that are openly vocal against ISIS? We need such a group. ISIS needs to hear what we American Christian men have to say to them.

    It is written in the Holy Bible. The blood will flow. I am fed up with what ISIS is doing against Christians. But I cannot act alone. Please steer me in the right direction toward such a Christian group. If there is none…..let us form one. I want ISIS to know that I am a Christian man; I am not going to be converted to their beliefs and I am ready to kill them for what they murders they are committing to Christians are their threats that they are going to kill me if they get the chance.

    I am fed up. Are you?

    • Tim

      I agree with Robert and I’d like that same information.

    • Holy Family Services International Movement

      Brothers in CHRIST Robert, Foster et al,
      Our JESUS instructs us to LOVE our enemy………
      Please connect us with those who are.

      ALL for HIS GLORY!


  4. Hormoz Shariat

    I believe we Christians need to declare war on Islam!

    We have a stronger army, more powerful weapons, and a better strategy. All we need are Christian Jihadists!

    Of course a Christian army with dedicated Christian “fanatics” does not bring death wherever it goes but life. We are not motivated by hatred, but love. Our weapons are not of this world, but have divine power to demolish strongholds. We are led by the greatest strategist as our Commander in Chief.

    We cannot lose. But we need Christian Jihadists who are as dedicated to loving and serving Jehova as Muslim Jihadists are dedicated in serving Allah.

    Mr. Friess,

    Saw the article on Breitbart regarding you, sir.

    I, just two days ago, saw a report about a man named Mathew VanDyke and his non-profit organization called Sons of Liberty International with the acronym of “SOLI”.

    Here is link to article:

    Here is link to his org.

    I am on a pension. Still, having read the daily, constant reports on their atrocities I sent in $25. It is all I can afford.

    Can you and your friends please help this organization?

    foster, i am an historian, specialized in american military history. i am also a naval aviator, 4th generation combat veteran, biblical scholar and lifelong conservative. i have an enduring love for America and our founding principles. i am sickened to see what has happened to our country over the past 50 years – but especially the past 6 years. i write this, knowing i speak to the choir. we have lost our way, in a manner not uncommon to former empires. the democrat party and its current leader is gradually, inexorably transforming us into a socialist state, with tragically predictable results.
    we have become a post-Christian nation, as our president has pointed out with pride. we face today an enemy unlike any before, an enemy committed to destroying America. fundamental islamism is nothing new. from jefferson to theodore roosevelt to winston churchill, it has alarmed the western world with its clearly stated intentions. the spectre of nuclear holocaust rises with iran. yet today, our president seems to view israel as the problem in the middle east, and iran as a potential ally to bring peace. prime minister netanyahu comes to speak to our congress on the threat, and is snubbed by our president and 58 democrat leaders in congress. we have lost our national character.
    so my point is this: educated Americans must boldly, without ceasing, speak out on these issues to every single individual who will listen, especially our elected representatives. we must do our utmost to change the minds of those who will vote in 2016, before it gets even worse. perhaps, just perhaps, concerned and educated voters can make a difference in 2016. i pray that will be the case before the America i have known and served and loved is dragged into the dustbin of history. if not, one day, not too long from now, historians will analyze the history of America and ask with incredulity “what were they thinking”?

  7. Steve Adamczyk

    Dear Sir,
    I applaud your resent visit to the Middle East regarding the war on Christians. I’m disgusted that our government is not taking a stand and doing what is right.
    I’m a Marine (Infantry) and was deployed twice to the Middle East. I recently began researching isis and came across pictures of beheaded children, ages 2-6 years old. I cried. I have two small children of my own, i can not imagine these isis animals doing this. I then became infuriated and started thinking, how can I help? I began looking into Private Security Contractor work to place myself back over there in order to get a better understanding and dynamics of the situation. I’m still pursuing this avenue but it is a slow go. While researching the PSC community, I ran across a few websites where their is a real concern on the isis issue. Their are many Christian Ex military Marines, Soldiers and Tier 1 and Tier 2 operators that have and will volunteer to go back to Syria/iraq and fight isis. I also found that one of my collegues from years back now owns and operates a Private Security and Consulting firm and is very familiar with operating in the Middle East.
    To stop this threat we must eliminate it over there, not wait till it gets here to the USA. Obviously the US Gov will not do anything so Private Contractors are the only way. You are a man of great financial resource. Some funding from someone like you and your associates , along with help from many Christian church’s across the country, can finance the right people to go in there and support current militias fighting against isis along with providing training and offensive operations to seek and destroy these animals persecuting Christians.
    I am a man of faith and a believer in Christ. I attend CCV church in Phoenix AZ. I will gladly volunteer to go and fight for Jesus. I understand that we preach peace but when war and evil are at our doorstep, we must fight to destroy that evil and protect the innocent. Those who can stand and fight have an obligation to do so. I will stand and fight! I pray God will use me to do His will and help protect the innocent.
    I am a nobody. I have little financial resource. All I have right now is prayer, hate for the evil that is killing innocent Christians, a Warrior mindset,fighting skills and the will to try to get something going to help.
    Erik Prince ( former Blackwater owner) stated he would have gladly stopped isis for free if the US Gov would stay out if his way. Our current administration would only hinder and most likely destroy any effort to help over there, but we still must try.
    God Bless you and all Chritians around the world. Lets continue to pray for their safety.

    I was excited after reading about you. I was dissapointed when I went to “Saddle Up” that an option for helping the Christians that are under attack in the Middle East was not an option listed, but that helping peaceful Muslims was. I am a Christian and I was trying to find some way to help our brothers and sisters that are under attack now. I have studied Islam and I beleive that the majority of so-called “peaceful Muslims” actually sympathize with the Jihadists.

    Jews wage war on Christianity. Jewish money promotes homosexuality, feminism, open borders for Islam, gun control, and anal marriage.

    Whose opinions dominate Jewish-owned media, Hollywood and newspapers?

    Who subsidizes modern art and Piss Christ and Dung Mary? Jews invented atheistic communism and smashed churches across Europe.

    Jews NKVD nailed white European women to barn doors and raped them and cut the wombs open with bayonets. Read Hellstorm.

    If you are too scared to name the Jew, you are too scared to be a Christian.

    If you can’t challenge Jews, but imagine them to be “chosen” to rule you, you will lose. Welcome to Islam!

    If you can get over the Jews, you can see the light.

    Christian Zionists who run to Israel to serve mass murderers and the kin of mass murderers are trying to pull one over on the public. Israel floats its political boat on a sea of American blood. That’s the real history of the Jews.

    Did you know that the Zionists made the deal with the British to get the US into WWI? Americans dupes thought they were making the world safe for democracy, but the truth is they were fodder to serve genocidal British merchantilism, while the Jews were giving Palestine. The same thing happened in the recent Iraq war.

    I would like to present a new body of Artwork for Christianity to Mr. Friess, that he and others may be interested in. This is a counter to the present War on Christianity:

  11. Priscilla Travis

    Has Mr. Friess had a chance to see the site of
    It is very different and annointed for today’s Christian battles, and is very timely in these Last Days. I would like to get his response to this work.

  12. Samuel Teasdale

    As an America Boy who fortified his home and got his great grandfathers guns ready for an invasion after sept 11th. I am pleasantly surprised with the politeness of the Moslem “invaders” so far.

    We help each other with homework, we watch movies we play call of duty. My guns have been taken away but I am happy!! And my greatest fear is doing these invaders any harm.

    yes some Muslims do want to spread their religion.

    But as for me my approach to Muslims at my school is very friendly, and I am the only American ever to enter their houses in America, and we watched kids movies such as the Abraham section of the series the BIBLE. And other kids movies based on the bible. You would be surprised how much they have in common with you as a Christian. They could always tell me what would happen next in the movie because of the Koran, I am personally thankful for them knowing the Koran which has alot in common with the bible. It makes for something to talk about.

    just focus on finding common ground and learn what their perspective is. For instance i learned Yes Mohammed was a warrior who stuck fear into his enemies, just like Joshua of the bible who settled Israel. But Mohammed would not let a man fight for him once because his mother was sick and needed help taking care of the family. That is the Mohammed they know.

    Most Muslims are just at home taking care of their families and are very nice fun people to be around. Not to mention they did not want to come to America when there parents sent or government sent them here, because all they hear about America is how many people we kill in places like Iraq.

    Most Muslims are the same as you. Trying their best to do what God wants them to do.

    So I think we have to be peaceful, because most Muslims are much more adverse to violence than Americans, and I would do more harm then good i think if i tried to over throw a group like ISIS.

    We just need to remind our enemies to fear God and not us and that God has mercy on the merciful.

  13. Samuel Teasdale

    I don’t know why people think that Allah is other than Jehovah, that is the same God. The God of Abraham who gave human life to Jesus in the virgin Mary’s womb. One God people stop accusing Muslims of having a different God and be at peace with your enemies. People can only recognize the authority of the Christ if you obey him, and love your enemy, otherwise on who’s authority do you do anything?

    Love your enemy, just read about king Fredrick the second, holy roman emperor.
