Boko Haram extremists and others have killed nearly as many Nigerian Christians in the first seven months of this year as were killed in all of 2013, the advocacy group Jubilee Campaign reported Tuesday (July 29).
Approximately 1,505 Nigerian Christians have been killed for their faith to date this year, compared to 1,783 Nigerian Christians killed in all of last year, based on Jubilee's tally of deaths on its blog FactsNigeriaViolence.org, a compilation of reports from various news sources.
The 2014 total to date is nearly 85 percent of those killed in all of last year....
"...you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations..." â€” quote from Matthew 24 NIV
[Here is my original reply, Christopher. You have to picture the snarling faces of unbelief. Often they don't get many pearls, unless God softens their hearts.]
I'll try bro, but it will be an approximation. Sue: Yes, there's this place up north that's haunted, and they can't sell the property. Apparently something weird happened there, and now the ghosts have it. John: You mean evil spirits. Sue: No, not evil. Ghosts aren't evil!! Anne: I've got a friend who contacted her dead mum. She knew it was her mum because she knew all about her. John: Ah, you mean an impersonating evil spirit. Anne/Sue: No, No, NO!!!! Michelle: No, NO!!!! John: Oh boy!
It's the same with sodomite mums. They go all nasty for a while, when I speak to them about what God says. They later tell lies about the Christians, trying to turn everyone they know away from God and from those nasty Christians.
But it's not always so bad. Recently I spotted a "bad" book on a book stall, and told the lady about it. Called 'Get to know your spirit guide'. I said to her, "this book is dangerous and can result in serious consequences." She said, "Bin it, would you?"
Oh, those poor girls. I can't believe they are still missing and don't want to even imagine what they have been, and are going through. All of their fathers have been murdered as well. Horrific. I wish we would send special ops in and take every one of these Boko Haram fanatics out. Normally, I would never suggest anything like this, but they are like a wild pack of demons running around with guns and machetes, butchering people for the fun of it. Incredibly disturbing what mankind is capable of. Please continue praying for those poor school girls.
John, I had asked.you about your witnessing, the harsh words and what brought it on, how.it was handled, etc. I don't know if you answered because the thread was old and diaappeared from my phone. If you did answer, can you repeat it if you find the time? No rush.
