|We take Jesus seriously.|
In Matthew 10:23, He said, "...when they persecute you, flee!"
When persecution of the Body of Christ begins in any area where we're working or planning to work, and we find out about it, we'll send an Ambassador to the leaders in that area. They'll be told plainly of the things that we do that help their people, for which we do not charge a dime, and warned that if the persecution does not stop, we will pull out the Christians and not return until the time of evil is over.
If they will not stop the persecution in fact (they can make speeches all day long; we look at the facts), we will declare the Ban. When the persecution actually stops, we will be willing to return. Not until then.
As part of their Ordination, all Sea Lions agree to leave any area under the Ban immediately. This is not negotiable. Those we can
take with us, we will. If we leave people behind that we believe should be extracted, we notify the Extraction Fleet, which will take such action as its leadership deems appropriate.
