Christians in Afghanistan fear complete annihilation at the hands of the Taliban. Some are fleeing into the mountains, even with winter just months away. Others are destroying anything that could identify them as a follower of Christ. But as senior international correspondent George Thomas points out, it's not only Christians who live in fear; the Taliban's charm campaign falling flat on a country that's lived through their rule before. Thomas is on today's CBN News Daily Rundown.
A song of ascents.
1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
