Ongoing Nigerian Church Attacks and Boko Haram Islamic Extremists

News broke late last night of eight Christians gunned down in a church in northeastern Nigeria. This follows hot on the heels of the Christmas Day church bombings in which nearly thirty Christians were killed.

It is widely suspected that Islamic extremist group Boko Haram are behind these attacks and it is no coincidence that last nights shooting took place a few days after an ultimatum Boko Haram issued giving Christians three days to leave Northern Nigeria.

In response to this upsurge in violence the Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has declared a state of emergency.

You might be interested to read a short article on this over on Christian Today, which I found informative and addresses the standard mainstream media narrative that this is all just ‘religious tensions’, with everybody behaving as badly as everybody else.

This region is in desperate need of our prayers.

    “What political correctness fails to grasp is that the true spiritual and moral interest of the West is for Christianity to be strong both in its own countries and in those nations where the battle between the gospel of the Prince of Peace and militant Islam is at its most intense.”

    That sounds like a call to arms in defence.

    Quite coincidently Goy – and only say this for general info really – I didn’t realise earlier that this article was written by Julian Mann, who I’ve interacted with in the blogging world since my very earliest days.

    You can see his blog on the link if you’re interested, where he reproduces the article today.

    Thank you guys and I certainly agree with Goy on this because it’s truly a spiritual battle, but mainstream media cannot comprehend anything of the real supernatural.
    It’s encouraging to learn of instances where the Lord is appearing to muslims. Then they realise the gross deception they’ve been led into!

    Is it true that muslims deny Earth being a sphere and that this runs contrary to the teachings of Allah?
