Worldwide Persecution of Christians is here, yes USA tooThe Coming Persecution of Christians in the Coming One World Government
My spiritual mentor, Dr. Francis Schaeffer, who has been called the greatest Evangelical theologian of the last 100 years, warned that as the anarchy increased in our world due to moral relativism, that totalitarianism would rise to control the chaos. Schaeffer issued that warning over 30 years ago and said we had a brief window in which to preserve our religious freedoms. Dr. Schaeffer believed that the greatest contributing factor to the rise of totalitarianism was the fact that the Evangelical Church was accommodating to a growing humanist culture and not standing for Biblical truth. Nowhere is that more apparent than in the “Emergent Church Movement” and in the “Seeker-Friendly Movement,” but it is epidemic in the Evangelical culture as a whole. Tragically, what Schaeffer predicted would happen in the church and the culture is now happening before our eyes. Schaeffer stated that it did not matter whether or not the totalitarianism came from the left or the right because the results would be the same.
With tears in my eyes, the words of Dr. Schaeffer reverberate in my mind, as I watch the rise of a global totalitarian state and the great apostasy that the Apostle warned about in II Thessalonians. For the most part the Evangelical Church in America and Europe is the Laodecian Church that Christ warned of in the Book of Revelation. It is this the same Laodecian Church that existed in **** Germany before the Third Reich took control. The result of the Laodecian Church is the explosive growth of a humanist and world socialist government. This “Fourth Beast” which Daniel warned about will persecute true Bible believing Christians in America, Great Britain and around the world before the Tribulation begins. The Church is raptured before a literal Seven year Tribulation Period, but prior to that time there will be worldwide persecution in a manner that I do not believe most Evangelical Churches and their leaders are prepared for.
In the United States, The Department of Homeland Security issued its “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment” Report. In addition, in many States, like Missouri, “Fusion Centers” have been set up based on the MIAC Strategic Report – The Modern Militia Movement. This Government Report alleges that a violent “rightwing extremist” movement is trying to take over the nation. According to the definitions in these reports, Bible believing Christians are labeled as “rightwing extremists.” The two reports appear to be anti-Christian propaganda created by left-wing and militant humanist “think tanks.” Their strategies are reminiscent of Adolph Hitler’s “Enabling Powers” laws which the occult Third Reich used after the “Reichstag (Parliament building) was burned down by “terrorists. These “Enabling Powers” gave Hitler the legal power to profile and arrest anyone who was even suspected of being critical of the **** Party. Through using the “Enabling Powers” laws to profile anyone as a potential terrorist, Hitler was able to grab dictatorial control of Germany in a matter months and killing 6-10 million Jews and Christians.
Many civil liberties groups such as the ACLU and the Rutherford Institute, headed by the Attorney John Whitehead, have of expressed grave concerns about the increasing “Police State” powers that began with the Bush Administration under the guise of anti-terrorist legislation. Today a vast array of government agencies are using a wide range of anti-terrorist legalization to profile and track law abiding citizen’s in something out of George Orwell’s novel “1984” which warned of the danger of totalitarianism built on the fear of terrorism. Orwell who was connected with the British Intelligence Agency MI5 saw the dangers of a global intelligence apparatus and attempted to warn the world about it before it was too late.
The DHS “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment” (PDF) appears to target and profile taxpaying and law abiding Americans who are conservative, populist politically, or Christian in their religious faith. The Report profiles all American’s who disagree with plans for world currency and a new world order. Millions of American’s are being profiled as terrorists, bomb-making militia members and white supremacists simply because they are critical of certain institutions that are technically completely separate from the American government. For example, American’s who express criticism of world government, the new world order, the United Nation, the North American Union, the Federal Reserve, RFID technology and foreign nations like Russia, India and China can be profiled as “rightwing extremists,” even though all of these things are theoretically separate from the U.S. government. In addition, even if these entities did have something to do with the U.S. Government, U.S. citizen’s have a Constitutional right under the First Amendment to peacefully, and in a law abiding manner exercise their freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom of the press without fear government interference.
In addition, in a manner very similar to the Hitler Youth, the Congress of the United States is passing a bill that is referred to as “Obama Youth Bill.” This bill will put millions of young people in the streets of America to act as agents for Obama. Yet, in the legal language of the bill there are many passages which forbid any young man or woman who is a practicing Christian and attends church, volunteers for church ministries, attends or leads worship services and Bible studies or shares his or her faith in Christ from being part of this “Obama Youth” or national service corps. In other words, practicing Christians are not allowed to become a part of the national service corps. Based on the history of the Hitler Youth, it is not difficult to understand why this is put in the national service corps bills.
For all the Evangelical Pastors who promoted President Obama, look carefully at the language of the bill. This bill’s title is called “Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education” (GIVE). It forms what some are calling “Obama’s Youth Brigade” and his goal is to enroll over one million youth. But, look at the anti-Christian nature of the bill.
The Bill would forbid any student in the brigade to participate in “engaging in religious instruction, conducting worship services, providing instruction as part of a program that includes mandatory religious instruction or worship, constructing or operating facilities devoted to religious instruction or worship, maintaining facilities primarily or inherently devoted to religious instruction or worship, or engaging in any form of religious proselytization.” That means no church attendance or sharing your faith.
Here is part of the HR1388 Bill’s wording:
SEC. 1304. PROHIBITED ACTIVITIES AND INELIGIBLE ORGANIZATIONS.
Section 125 (42 U.S.C. 12575) is amended to read as follows:
SEC. 125. PROHIBITED ACTIVITIES AND INELIGIBLE ORGANIZATIONS.
(7) Engaging in religious instruction, conducting worship services, providing instruction as part of a program that includes mandatory religious instruction or worship, constructing or operating facilities devoted to religious instruction or worship, maintaining facilities primarily or inherently devoted to religious instruction or worship, or engaging in any form of religious proselytization.
In other words Christians would not be allowed to be part of this Obama Youth Movement. Why do you think that is? Dr. Orly Taitz, is a female attorney who lives in Mission Viejo, California. She is also a dentist and speaks five languages. According to an interview she gave in WorldNetDaily, she was born and raised in Kishinev, the capital of the Republic of Moldova, a country in Eastern Europe that was formerly part of the Soviet Union. She compares the “Obama Youth Bill” to the Soviet Union which used children for slave labor and indoctrination.
Dr. Taitz said, “Parents were not allowed to home school their children. They were forced to enroll them in government schools. From the age of 6, all children were required to become young communists. You had to send your child to school, and your child had to be a member of the young communists,” Taitz said. “There were no children who were not members. You had to do it. If you were one of the best, you become a member of the Communist Party. It was constant brainwashing. There was no choice, and people resented that. They were scared to speak up.”
There are parallels between what happened in the Soviet Union and ****, Germany and what is happening in America now. Bible believing Christians are being profiled as dangerous “rightwing extremists.” In Communist China churches and Christians are not allowed to preach or teach on Bible prophecy. In the same way Christians who believe in “end time’s prophecies” are to be profiled. The same thing is now happening in America.
These “unnamed” “rightwing extremists, a term which is used over 47 times appears to profile any taxpaying U.S. citizen who may hold one or more of the following beliefs and could be classified on an elaborate government computer network as a “rightwing extremist, militia member or terrorist.
Any one of the following beliefs could classify an individual or groups as a terrorist:
• Critical of the United Nations
• Critical of the New World Order
• Critical of the Federal Reserve
• Homosexual marriage
• Oppose the North American Union (which officially does not exist)
• Critical of the income tax
• Oppose illegal immigration
• Fear foreign powers such as Communist China, Iran, Russia and India
• If you are concerned that China and India are prospering economically while America is on the down turn
• Critical of any of President Obama’s policies ( abortion, homosexual marriage. etc. )
• Concern about RFID chips
• Belief in Bible prophecy or “End Time Prophecies”
What is interesting about the above list is that a great deal with it has to do with things that have nothing to do with the individual nation. The only possible reason any national government would be concerned about its citizen’s objecting to things like new world order, world government, the United Nations, homosexual marriage, a regional global government like the North American Union, abortion, RFID chips and belief in end times prophecies is because this is what they are planning to promote in the near future. Otherwise why be bothered about it?
I would suggest to you that Bible prophecy is being fulfilled far faster than most of us realize and that this why governments around the world are concerned about these things.
Make no mistake about it across the U.S., Europe, Australia and other regions, Bible believing Christian are going to be persecuted before the Tribulation Period. However many Christians and Christian leaders think that if they “give up land for peace,” they will be left alone. That does not work for Israel and it will not work for the Church. Getting up and apologizing on national television for supporting traditional marriage as some American ministers have done, is not going to earn you acceptance from the world. Anymore than Israel giving up land for peace has brought about an end to terrorism. The answer is to obey the words of Jesus Christ when He tells us to “occupy until I come.” This is not a plea for a kind of Christian reconstructionism, it is simply Jesus telling us to faithfully proclaim the truth in season and out of season until He comes for His Church. Maranatha!

One note: Even though Paul McGuire(the writer of this article) is pre-trib, he DOES say that there WILL be persecution toward Christians before the 7 year tribulation starts. Personally, for the most part, my big gripe with the pre-trib crowd is that there's this perception that the rapture could happen imminently, potentially minutes from now. IOW, everything will be appear to be peaceful et al before this event takes place. Again, McGuire is right, Christians will have to go through persecution.
Luke 21:7 And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?
Luk 21:8 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.
Luk 21:9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.
Luk 21:10 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
Luk 21:11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
Luk 21:12 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.
As for the modern-day church being mum about end times bible prophecies? Yeah, I've noticed that too lately, including those churches I've crossed paths with. These pastors will even twist bible passages to make it seem that way. Looks like they may be on FEMA's payroll, I don't know.
The Coming Persecution of Christians II
By Paul McGuire
There is a coming a wave of persecution against Bible believing Christians in Western nations such as Great Britain, France, Germany, the United States and other nations. The Church in all of these nations is totally unprepared for the level and intensity of the assault that is to come against true Christians. First, of all the primary reason for such persecution is that the Church in Western nations has in many cases forsaken the true God and has turned to false gods. They have chosen to leave the truth of God’s Word for the philosophy of humanism. They call themselves and Christians, but in reality they are worshippers of what Dr. Francis Schaeffer used to call the “gods of personal peace and prosperity.”
Pravda, the leading publication in Russia, which is still a Communist country, published an article by a blogger Mat Rodina. Rodina writes. “American Capitalism Gone with a Whimper,” dated April 24, 2009. Rodina writes, “Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more than Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more than happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the “winning” side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.”
Like it or not, whatever his motives, what Rodina has written in Pravda is true and this is why we are on the verge of an intense persecution in America and other Western nations. In America, we recently had a Pastor fined in San Diego County for holding a small Bible study in the privacy of his home. A government worker allegedly asked his daughter things like “Do they say Praise the Lord?” Do they sing Christian hymns?” and “Do they pray etc.” By God’s grace it appears this fine will be rescinded but for how long?
In the United States we have Hate Crime legislation that will result in the arrest of thousands of Christians and their pastors, when this legislation is enforced. Hate Crime legislation will shut down entire churches and some pastors will go to prison for preaching the truth of the Gospel. In addition, we have stealth versions of what is called the “Fairness Doctrine” ready to be legislated. This legislation will effectively shut down the preaching of God’s Word when it comes to morality or simply saying, “Jesus Christ is the Way the Truth and the Life no man comes to the Father but through Me.”
June 1, 2009 the Associated Press ran an international headline of “Accused killer raged against abortion. The story began by saying, “Ex-wife says suspect in doctor’s murder had virulent anti-government views WICHITA, Kan. – Scott Roeder harbored a burning, “eye-for-an-eye” anger toward abortion doctors. He once subscribed to a magazine suggesting “justifiable homicide” against them, and apparently likened Dr. George Tiller to the **** death-camp doctor Josef Mengele.” Now, I do not know of any Bible Christian who would in any way condone, approve of or promote the killing of Dr. George Tiller. I certainly do not, and I have never met anyone who does. But, pay very close attention to the wording of the Associated Press article when it uses terms like “rage against abortion” and “virulent anti-government views.” This is almost word for word the terminology that the Department of Homeland Security uses in classifying a terrorist and it is the legal language defining anyone who could be prosecuted for a “Hate Crime.” If you disagree with the United States government you are now “anti-government” and a terrorist. There is clear cut strategy coming to play here.
The United States Department of Homeland Security, and what are called “Fusion Centers” issued documents which classify individuals or groups who are “pro-life,” “concerned about a single issue like the sanctity of marriage,” “critical of the United Nations,” and groups and people who believe in “End Times Bible Prophecy” are profiled as terrorists and “anti-government.” According to these publications, if you are critical of “Communist countries,” critical of the Federal Reserve,’ “critical of Obama,” critical of the economic prosperity of China and India,” or any other single issue than you are “anti-government” and a “terrorist.”
Now, anyone with a third grade education would understand that this is in clear violation of the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights. In America, we have the Constitutional rights of “freedom of religion,” “freedom of the press” and “freedom of speech.” But these Constitutional freedoms are no longer legal certainties because the Constitution is perceived as an “evolving document” and judges are appointed who enact law based on their own feelings and international law. In this Alice in Wonderland legal world, any law is possible. Any law!
The U.S. Government passed legislation for what is called the “Americorps,” which some critics are calling a potential “Hitler Youth Movement.” According to the law, if you are part of a church, attend worship services, sing in a choir or share your faith in Jesus Christ, than you are not allowed to be a part of the Americorps program which means you would be denied certain jobs and government benefits. This is just the tip of the iceberg.
In nations like France, Germany, the United States, Great Britain, Australia and Canada there is sweeping legislation designed to restrict, fine and imprison Christian’s who believe the Bible literally. In Germany you had Christian Home Schooling children seized from their homes and sent away to secret psychiatric hospitals while their Christian mothers were strip searched by “storm troopers.” German police now escort German home schooling children to public school because the German courts have ruled that Germany cannot tolerate “parallel societies,” which simply means that the German government does not want Christian children taught Christian morality and a belief in God. They want all children of the German State, as Hitler did, to be taught humanism and an anything goes sexual “morality.”
Christians must stop being so naïve and understand that this is all part of an organized global plan driven by organizations like UNESCO, the United Nations and international legal documents like the U.N. Convention of the Rights of the Child.
A friend of mine, and prominent Constitutional authority, John Whitehead, founder of the Rutherford Institute, recently wrote a legal opinion of what happens under Martial Law. Under Martial Law, Whitehead explained all of your legal rights are gone. Thus, if you have been arbitrarily labeled a terrorist because you believe in “Bible Prophecy,” you can be arrested without any appeal or trial.
Christian’s in America are very naïve, they have little or no understanding of the realities of history. What happened in **** Germany, can easily happen here. In fact, there are many disturbing parallels between what is happening here economically, theologically and politically and what happened during the Weimar Republic.
This is how it will play out. You are beginning to see very quickly two kinds of Christians emerge in the United States and Europe. First, you will see an “Emergent Church,” that goes with the flow of humanistic secularism. In **** Germany, the term “Emerging Theology” was a term that was actually used. This will become the State approved Church, like the one Hitler approved of in Germany and currently exists in China. This type of Christian Church will be approved by a totalitarian state because it will empower that state through its complicity. Secondly, you will have the true Bible believing Church that will be persecuted because it stands for Biblical truth. This true Church will largely be driven underground as it is in China.
It is absolutely crucial that we perceive current events through the lens of Scripture. The Bible is very clear about what is going to happen in the last days. There will be a one world economic system, a one world government and a one world religion. All of that “Beast” system is emerging before our very eyes. Christian pastors and individual Christians who believe that they will find safety through accommodation to the culture are no different than the Jews who believe that giving up land will bring about peace. Both Christians who claim to know their Bible and Jews who believe a two-state solution and surrendering Jerusalem will lead to peace and safety will quickly discover that accommodation leads to persecution, death and slaughter. Let us remember that both Jews and Christians were saying right up until their deaths “it can’t happen here.” This is what most American Christians are saying, “It can’t happen here.”
The fate of Israel and the fate of the Christian Church are inexorably linked together. The failure to stand for Israel by the Christian Church in America could easily lead to a terrorist attack which would bring in Martial Law and terrible persecution.
In America I constantly here Christians say that “we are going to be Raptured out of here” before any of that happens. That is not sound exegesis. I believe the Bible teaches a Pre-Tribulation Rapture. I believe that Christ, the Bridegroom, is coming to get His Bride, the Church before the seven year Tribulation Period occurs. I do not believe that the Church will be here during the Tribulation and I do not believe that the Church will see the revealing of the Antichrist. But, we must remember that Jesus Christ and the Apostle Paul never taught that the Rapture was strictly an American Rapture. The Bible does not teach that the minute things get difficult in “America” that God is going to Rapture the American Church. The Bible simply does not teach this. Persecution and tribulation (not the Tribulation Period) are coming very quickly and the American Church, especially, must be prepared in practical ways. The Bible does not teach fatalism. It matters very much to God what we do now. Jesus Christ said, “Occupy until I come.” That word occupy has many implications, which does not include attempting to establish a theocracy. Jesus is coming very soon! Israel is God’s prophetic time clock. The nation s are about to be judged. But, we have been called to minister the Gospel Jesus Christ fearlessly. However, we must wake up! The hour is far later than we think. The Bridegroom cometh. Even so come quickly Lord Jesus!

Filth is EVERYWHERE
Jun 10, 2013 The current environment in Washington, D.C. is the same vile surroundings as found at the United Nations, the Council on Foreign Relations, The Bilderburg Group meetings, the Muslim Holy War Agenda, the CIA and the Mossad, to name but a few.
DC is full of human corruption, treason, baby killing (blood sacrifice to Satan), homosexuality, denial of Biblical values and the rejection of Yeshua, LORD Jesus Christ.
This corruption and filth is EVERYWHERE you look in the United States of America, including schools and churches!
Washington conducts meaningless hearings, but will not go after the rats in the CIA, IRS, FBI, EPA, NSA, the Democrats or the Republicans, the Federal Reserve, or or or.
Men died in Libya because treasonous cowards rule in Washington.
America is a disgraced, cowardly, and lost nation and GODs judgment is at hand.
Soon they will all be swept away.
ALWAYS DISCERN everything you read. I edit.
New world order evil planned betrayal and slaughter of Christians - the TRUE CHRISTIANS.
Dont read the headlines or accept news on TV or the radio. Look beyond the obvious to see whats about to happen.
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Mat 24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

Christians' Utilities Shut Off for Refusing to Participate in Religious Ceremony
Twenty-five Protestant families have had their water and electricity supplies disconnected and have effectively been put under house arrest in Mexico because of their refusal to participate in Traditionalist Catholic religious ceremonies.
On Feb. 11, village authorities cut off the Protestant families’ water supply. Two days later, their electricity supply was also disconnected, and chains, ropes and civilian guards were placed around the families’ homes in order to further isolate them.
On the same day, one member of the group was arbitrarily detained by village authorities and imprisoned for more than 24 hours after he attempted to reconnect his water while under the supervision of state officials and police. Village authorities in Unión Juárez, located in La Trinitaria municipality in the state of Chiapas also detained the police officers for 10 hours.
Traditionalist Catholic village authorities are demanding that the families, who belong to the local Mount Tabor Evangelical Church, contribute financially to religious festivals and have said they will not permit the families to reconnect their services or receive visitors until they pay 500 pesos (approximately $3 each.
The village authorities are justifying their actions as in line with the Law of Uses and Customs, which gives indigenous populations autonomy to exercise traditional forms of justice and to protect their culture.
The situation follows an escalation of discriminatory behavior toward the group of Protestant Christians in the municipality beginning in 2010, when the local village assembly blocked their access to firewood and refused them permission to attend or participate in village assembly meetings.
According to Luis Antonio Herrera, a local activist representing the victims, the families have pointed out that under the Mexican Constitution, they cannot legally be forced to be involved in festivals or ceremonies linked to religions to which they do not ascribe. The victims have filed a complaint with the National Commission for Human Rights.
Dr. Jorge Lee Galindo, director of Impulso 18, Christian Solidarity Worldwide's partner organization in Mexico, says, “Unfortunately, this case is not atypical in Chiapas, where village authorities regularly attempt to impose the majority religion on all inhabitants of the village. Crimes like this take place with impunity, contributing to a worsening of the situation, as can be seen in this case. State authorities should intervene in the early stages to prevent increasing violations of human rights, and those responsible for criminal acts must be held accountable in a court of law.”
Mervyn Thomas, chief executive of Christian Solidarity Worldwide, says, “We call on the government of Chiapas state and as well as the federal government to take urgent action to protect the fundamental rights of the people of La Union Juarez. It is unacceptable that access to electricity and water be used as a tool to enforce religious belief in a modern democracy with constitutional protections for religious freedom.
“We are also concerned that without swift action on the part of government officials, and based on the trajectory of similar cases, the situation could deteriorate further and lead to violence. Those who are responsible for the criminal acts committed thus far, including the deprivation of basic services, water and electricity, and arbitrary detention, must be prosecuted.”
Kim Jong-Un Sentences 33 Christians to Death
Sentenced to be executed inside a secret cell for working with a South Korean Baptist missionary
Brutal North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has ordered the execution of 33 Korean Christians for setting up 500 underground churches with South Korean Baptist missionary Kim Jung-wook.
The Daily Mail reports that Kim Jong-un has ordered the execution over the suspicion that this small group of Christians were "attempting to overthrow" his regime, thereby undermining North Korea's doctrine of "juche" -- where decisions for the country are made en masse and to "prevent the influx of capitalist practices and beliefs."
The Baptist missionary, Kim Jung-wook, was jailed in 2013 for the same crime, underground churches, and appeared at a press conference recently where he "apologized for committing 'anti-state' crimes." He said he had entered North Korea from China with Bibles and other Christian media with intent to distribute them in Pyongyang. During the press conference Jung-wook "confessed" his crime:
I was thinking of turning North Korea into a religious country, and destroying its present government and political system.
The 33 North Koreans are said to have confessed that they received money from Jung-wook and that he wanted them to build a church in Pyongyang on the site where a statue of North Korea's founder, Kim Il-Sung, stands after the regime falls, according to The Chosun Ilbo.
The Chosun Ilbo reports that Jung-wook was "paraded" at the press conference in order to claim that "underground churches are sedition cells funded by South Korea's National Intelligence Service."
Kim Jong-un ordered this execution to take place inside a secret cell at the State Security Department and intends this to send a message to other Christians attempting to establish underground churches.
The Chosun Ilbo stated in 2013 that for the 11th straight year, North Korea has been dubbed "Worst Oppressor of Christians," estimating that up to 70,000 Christians are suffering in prison camps.
150 Christians MASSACRED by Jihadi Muslims last night while they slept
While many of us were enjoying our Friday evenings, a massacre was taking place in Nigeria that left between 100 and 150 Christians dead and around 200 homes burned to the ground.
At around 10pm Nigeria time last night while villagers were asleep, more than 40 Fulani herdsmen attacked the Ungwan Gata, Me-Sankwai and Tekum villages in Manchok (Kaura Local Government), which is located in Southern Kaduna, Nigeria. Southern Kaduna is a predominantly Christian.
These jihadi attackers first set fire to homes and when the Christians attempted to escape their homes, they were shot dead or butchered with machetes. The ones who could not escape their homes burned to death.
No one attacked was spared, including women and children. A pastor, his wife, and their children, of one of the villages, were said to be among the butchered.
The attack lasted around four hours until the Nigerian military arrived, at which point the jihadis fled.
A group in southern Kaduna wondered how this attack could have lasted so long without the authorities intervening.
According to PUNCH NIGERIA, Dr. John Danfulani, a spokesman for Centrum Initiative for Development and Rights Advocacy (CEDRA), suggested the state government and its agents were just playing politics with the insecurity in the area. He warned that the patience of the people of the area was fast running out:
“It is clear that the state government and their agents are only playing politics with the insecurity ravaging Southern Kaduna region. They should know that posterity will judge them and they have began journey into political wilderness as blood of our helpless villagers is on their heads.”
Danfulani pointed out that these attacks were part of a larger genocide of Christians in southern Kaduna.
Ex-Muslim pastor in Idaho
May 26, 2015 Sandpoint - Seattle, Washington is full of Muslims.
Spokane-area pastor Shahram Hadian is a former Muslim who converted to Christianity. There are surprisingly many Muslim converts to Christianity out warning about Islam - IN AMERICA - or what once was America before Obama. Howell worries young people are being indoctrinated to Islam and that followers already have a foothold in parts of the Northwest.
Hadian speaks about the fallacy of a peaceful Islam. Hadian warns that Islam is not just a religion but a totalitarian system governing people’s lives. Americans must not let political correctness and tolerance keep them sidelined while Islam destroys their way of life.
Obama is a Muslim and Islam is a culture of Death.
Muslims are in darkness, they need to be rescued out of the darkness.
Shahram Hadian fled Iran for U.S.
Hadian sees America losing its freedoms, just like Iran had. Shahram Hadian was born in Iran in 1971. His father was an army officer and his mother a school teacher. When Hadian was 7, the family fled to the U.S. ahead of the Iranian Revolution, when the shah was exiled and replaced by the ayatollah.
He was married in 2001, and he and his wife Michelle have 3 sons that they home school.
When Hadian converted to Christianity, he faced persecution and disapproval from his family and culture. Hadian's message to Christians is - prepare for the difficult days ahead, and equip believers to stand strong through increased persecution.

Gay activist Matthew Vines quietly holds private meetings with Christian leaders
In his newsletter, Matthew Vines, author of God and the Gay Christian and founder of The Reformation Project (to reform biblically-based churches to accepting homosexuality and gay marriage), wrote this:
Pretty amazing news: Yesterday, evangelical leader Tony Campolo announced his support for “gay Christian couples” in the church, changing his position in a moving statement on his website after many years.
And then this morning, the work of The Reformation Project made the front page of the nation’s paper of record, The New York Times. The headline of the landmark article: “Evangelicals Open Door to Debate on Gay Rights.”
The work is far from over, but for a single day, that’s some remarkable momentum for this cause. Thank you to all of our allies, both old and new, and to our many dedicated co-laborers in this movement whose critical work continues make these kinds of breakthroughs possible.
In reading the New York Times piece, we see some interesting strategies from Vines. First, his meetings with Christian leaders are almost always private, one-on-one affairs. He has talked with small groups of pastors in Phoenix and Nashville and shared his story over coffee or lunch in places like Atlanta; Chicago; Orlando, Fla.; Portland, Ore.; and Greenville, S.C. If he can soften hearts and hard soil with his earnestness, his niceness, and his ability to make worldly reason sound so right, then he has gained a foothold.
Here is something I did not know: He also visited the campus of Focus on the Family in February, and talked with more than 20 staff members about the psychic and spiritual damage inflicted on young gay Christians by ministries like Focus.
