Attacks on Christians By Buddhist Radicals Rising in Sri Lanka
But that impression doesn't last long when Christians living in Buddhist-majority Sri Lanka speak about the real situation in their country.
According to the National Christian Evangelical Alliance of Sri Lanka (NCEASL), Buddhist nationalists launched more than 20 attacks against Christians in the South Asian country since the start of this year, World Watch Monitor (WWM) reported.
Since the Sri Lankan people elected a new government in 2015, more than 190 incidents of religious violence against churches, clergy, and Christians have been recorded, according to the NCEASL in its May 27 report.
Sectarian violence remains unabated even though freedom of religion is a fundamental right guaranteed by the Sri Lanka constitution, the report stated....
Valid concerns. I often wonder when parked in our pew if someone with a violent agenda will attack the church. We often are in an urban or suburban environment in which the name of Christ is no longer perferred by the general population and feel more comfortable in more of a rural setting. But attacks by nuts have taken place in rural churches as well.
These that attack are what has been referred to as the spirit of the Antichrist. And will continue on until the real deal appears supposedly to bring peace among the people. Things are good for awhile does miracles even,through his false prophet but things change as he shows his true colors. And you think this is horrific, you ainâ€™t seen nothing yet until the Man of Perdition is revealed. This can happen at anytime or any place and churches are a soft target. This will only get worse as we near the end of the age.
