Christians in Egypt and Nigeria continue to suffer at the hands of Islamists. In Egypt, Muslim mobs are rampaging through Coptic villages, while in Nigeria, the radical Islamist terror group, Boko Haram, continues to blow up churches, and slaughter Christians in their homes.
While the looting, bombing, burning, and killing continues to terrify millions of Christians in Egypt and Nigeria, the bloodshed has attracted little attention around the world. In Washington, D.C., both the Obama Administration, and the State Department, continue to blame the violence on poverty, and social inequality, rather than condemn Islamic supremacy for persecuting Christian minorities.
Nigeria, and Boko Haram:
The truth, however, is quite different. Despite the constant insistence by the White House that its all about social justice, Boko Haram was quite clear about their reasons for killing Christians in this chilling statement from their leadership, published recently in the Nigerian newspaper, The Osun Defender:
“The Nigerian state and Christians are our enemies and we will be launching attacks on the Nigerian state and its security apparatus as well as churches until we achieve our goal of establishing an Islamic state in place of the secular state.“
Taking their threats even further, Boko Haram’s leader Abubakar Shekau, issued these demands to Nigeria’s lawfully elected, Christian President, Goodluck Jonathan:
“In an online video released last week, the militant Muslim group Boko Haram demanded that Nigeria’s Christian president either convert to Islam, or resign. [Boko] Haram head Abubakar Shekau told President Goodluck Jonathan to “repent and forsake Christianity,” otherwise Shekau’s followers would continue their violent campaign.“
If this activity doesn’t wake up the church, I don’t know what will. Christians are being crucified in Egypt. The war between good and evil is coming out into the open. This is what we can expect here in the United States as this activity comes to our shores. I pray for the Christians in Egypt that God will protect them but I also pray that God will wake up his church and that his church will get on their knees to repent of our wicked ways. May God move you to seek forgiveness for our unwillingness to stand up for him and our unwillingness to stand against evil in our country. Amen.
