Just a day after Muslim terrorists stormed a shopping mall in Kenya, killing at least 59, the Taliban is suspected of orchestrating a suicide bomb attack on an historic church in Pakistan, killing at least 78.
Hundreds more were injured in the attacks that began midday yesterday in Nairobi, Kenya.
The latest attack this morning in Peshawar, Pakistan, occurred as hundreds of worshipers were coming out of the church in the city‚Äôs Kohati Gate district after services to get a free meal of rice offered on the front lawn, said a top government administrator, Sahibzada Anees.
‚ÄúThere were blasts and there was hell for all of us,‚ÄĚ Nazir John, who was at the church with at least 400 other worshipers, told the Associated Press. ‚ÄúWhen I got my senses back, I found nothing but smoke, dust, blood and screaming people. I saw severed body parts and blood all around.‚ÄĚ...
This was a most cowardly and despicable act that was done to those people at their place of worship....and our prayers are with those who lost loved ones and for the recovery of the injured. The roman religion is not Christian and that is what I am addressing here in my comment...there seems to be a silence from the Protestant,Evangelical community concerning this and everyone just accepts the fact that Romanism is Christian and ignores the fact that those people in that system desperately need to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ....and not the superstitions and works based gospel...that is not a gospel at all..Gal.1:7-9..that Rome teaches!
This is horrific but not shocking to Christians in Pakistan:
"Church leaders and Christian communities received letters warning them to convert to Islam or face suicide bombings. A group of church leaders met with police officials on August 11, 2007 and urged authorities to protect the minorities and apprehend the fundamentalists for causing unrest. Fr. Yousaf Amanat was parish priest of St. Michael's Catholic Church at the time."
