A Kony 2012 video response

This video cost $0 to make. There is no kit for sale. No bracelet to wear. No poster to put up. There is no one to make famous.

Charles is a former abducted child soldier who through the grace of God has chosen to forgive his captors rather than seek revenge. We believe that the weapon that will change the issue of Kony and the many children affected by his atrocities is the releasing power of forgiveness.

You may wonder if we believe Kony should be brought to justice. Absolutely! We praise God that Invisible Children has helped bring these atrocities into the light once again, and we pray that this campaign will help end Kony’s efforts to steal, kill and destroy. But more importantly is the transformation only God can bring to the lives of the numerous children scarred by the actions of Kony and the LRA. Truthfully, if healing and forgiveness doesn’t take precedence in the hearts of these former child soldiers, then we can expect revenge and hatred to rule and Kony’s own victims to rise up in his place.

I hope that more Christians will feel a “caution in (his) spirit” like Mr. Bakimi did, before reacting in hatred and revenge. This plays out all over the world in the US foreign policies. We are too easily incited to react in violence and hardly ever stop to listen to the Holy Spirit. May men like him rise up in the US, not just in our population, but in our Gov’t. Beware of Christian leaders who speak words of revenge and violence in our foreign policies. Mr. Bakimi is a minority in his thinking of mercy and forgiveness. And we may be a minority who stand with him, but we must stand, in humility and grace.

I am so glad that the video went viral on youtube. I hope it sends a message to the children who were physically and mentally tortured by Kony that the world cares about them and supports them and is praying for their healing. We support the work Kobwin is doing. god bless all involved.
