Here is what she did:
"A British schoolteacher sentenced to 15 days in jail in Sudan for allowing her pupils to name a teddy bear Mohammed."
"A complaint by a fellow staff member at the school where she taught led to her arrest. Sudan's top clerics described her actions as part of a Western plot against Islam and called for the maximum sentence under Sharia law. Gibbons could have received 40 lashes or a six-month jail sentence."
"After her sentencing last week, hundreds of Sudanese demonstrated for a stiffer sentence, with some calling for her to be beheaded."
I guess that I do not understand it. As a follower of Christ, I would have no problem with someone naming a teddy bear Jesus. I would not do it, but it is not offensive to me. These people wanted to behead her.
My Faith is the most important thing to me, for apart from Christ I would be lost forever. I am not called to be offended by other people's thoughts on Jesus, but to love my enemies and pray for them. (Matthew 5:44) My God is bigger than I am. He is able to defend His Name. I am offended when people misuse His name. But I do not want those who do to be killed. I know that God will deal with them. I guess that is where the difference is. They serve a false god that needs their protection and I serve the True and Living God who orchestrates all the events of this world.

Philippians 4:5-7 ... The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:19 And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
It is often times easy to get discouraged, but the Lord is always at hand. He is always here to supply my every need and He listens to my every prayer. Praise God!

As I read this book again I am reminded of who I am and who God is. How He has sought after my heart and loved me with an unconditional love that has redeemed me. This is a great book. Parts of it are hard to read, because sin is so destructive and horrific, but God does not leave His people there. He frees and sustains them from sin with His love.
