A suicide attack on a historic Christian church in northwestern Pakistan killed at least 75 people on Sunday in one of the deadliest attacks on the Christian minority in Pakistan in years.
I will depart from my usual Sunday Bun to address the slaughter of at least 75 Christians who were targeted by a Muslim extremist.
First off, churches and Christians in Syria have also been targeted, leaving churches and homes burned, as well as many killed. http://www.persecution.org/category/countries/middle-east/syria/
Radical Islam is alive and well and Christians are being targeted and killed because of our beliefs.
This post is a call to prayer. We need to pray for the people in these countries whose lives have been changed forever by the heinous acts of cowardice. We are told to pray for those who spitefully use us.
We have seen the massacre of people, in the name of Islam, in our own country, with the Fort Hood shootings.
Over and over again it’s the same insane slaughter of innocent lives in the name of Islam. There needs to be a reformation in the Muslim world, but as it stands now there are not many who will broach the subject and those that do are sometimes killed. http://www.answering-islam.org/authors/abraham/reforming_islam.html
This kind of slaughter, by these terrorists will only create a backlash. At some point people will push back and this will only lead to more blood shed. I am appalled at what I see happening in Pakistan, Syria, Nairobi and other places.
I have no solutions except to pray.
I believe when He returns and the Islamic world sees Him, they will understand. There is a link that I use in my presentations which is a harbinger of this. It is the reuniting of Jacob and Ishmael. There is hope….. Jesus is the answer.
