Christians Under Fire in Nigeria

Christians in Northern Nigeria continue to face threats and frequent violent attacks by Islamic Jihadists. Churches have been bombed, schools attacked and Christians ordered to renounce Christ under threat of death. Incredibly, numerous petitions and efforts in Congress have still not succeeded in pressurising the US State Department to designate the Boko Haram Jihadists as a Foreign Terrorist Organisation (FTO). The president of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), representing some 80 million Christians, has questioned how serious America can be in the war against terrorism, when Boko Haram have claimed responsibility for hundreds of terror attacks on churches and schools, yet are not even listed as a terrorist organisation by the USA.

"Their feet are swift to shed blood; destruction and misery are in their ways; and the way of peace they have not known. There is no fear of God before their eyes." Rom 3:15-18
