Nigeria: More Christians Hacked and Butchered to Death by Muslim Rioters


“After a recent lull, there has been a fresh outbreak of violence in Nigeria which has resulted in the deaths of at least 15 Christians.

Last week Plateau State, of which Jos is the capital, was subjected to a series of attacks. After allegations of an animal theft, Ferom was attacked twice on 4 August with eight members of one family killed in the first attack and a further three people killed in the second. On 14th August, Muslim rioters took to the streets in north Jos and killed three Christians by machetes. The Residents of Jwol community reported an attack on Friday in which one person was killed. There was another slaughter at Hiepand leaving at least 8 dead, some with gunshot wounds.

Residents claim that the police and army were complicit in these attacks and produced a helmet, a blood-stained military belt, cartridge cases, and 5 military identity cards in evidence…

Islam spread into Nigeria from the north from the late middle ages. The north is now predominantly Muslim, while the south of Nigeria is predominantly Christian. Many fear that these attacks demonstrate a renewed effort by some Muslim extremists to make Islam the dominant religion throughout Nigeria.” Read more.

    Hack others to death (with a machete) as you would have them hack you to death.

    Hack your neighbors to death as you hack yourself to death.

    We hack to death because God first hacked us to death.

    By this we know that we properly exalt ourselves–we hack others to death.

    By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you hack people to death.

    Sick, sick, SICK!

    OK, as I was just worshiping our amazing Yeshua, the following verses just came to mind regarding this awful situation, for which I have been praying:

    So Peter seeing him said to Jesus, “Lord, and what about this man?” Jesus said to him, “If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow Me!” John 21:21-22

    While we need to lift up our brothers and sisters in their suffering and to help in any way we can, we are not to cease worshiping our Yeshua with all of our hearts.
