As I grow in my walk with the Lord, I learn to thank Him for things that I used to complain about, also for things I used to fear from. He is the Creator and Savior; therefore, He knows everything and everyone. Surely His wisdom greatly exceeds my understanding, and His love would overcome my fears.
For many Egyptian Christians, Sisi is worth to be supported for several political and ecclesiastical reasons. Moreover, for completely different reasons, some conservatives in the West seem to prefer a stable and strong military leader in Egypt. Nonetheless, from mere Christian perspectives, supporting a lunatic tyrant shouldn’t be warranted.
Sisi might be fighting terrorists, but certainly not terrorism in the broader sense. On the contrary, his unjust policies will lead to an insurgence of terrorism.
If Christians would betray their principles of love, justice, and equality for political and security reasons, what a shallow and shaken faith they posses. I believe the Word of God, I take it seriously, and I cannot justify the deeds of an evil, liar, and lunatic tyrant- who torture, jail, and kill people, for the sake of temporary peace.
A true Christian should be true to Christ and his Word, not to a pope, or patriarch, or any earthly leader, and he/she is in no way obligated to support what violates his faith and conscience. Any Pharaoh will eventually perish, while the Lord will reign forever.
