While Christians slept peacefully in their beds, Fulani herdsmen in Nigeria snuck into their village – and lit their homes on fire, burning them to the ground.
Nearly 700 Christians watched their homes burn, while others lost their lives, including children as young as 4-years old.
Once you hear the details about this brutal attack, you’re bound to be horrified.
Fulani herdsmen continue to target Christians at an alarming level.
This latest attack, burned down 114 homes, displacing 690 Christians, and killing 10 of them, reported Morning Star News.
As Christians in Nigeria mourn yet another tragedy, the world looks on in horror as the escalation of violence against Christians continues in Nigeria.
In fact, the Nigerian situation is so bad that Christian Solidarity International (CSI) issued a Genocide Warning for the country.
In addition, Open Doors added Nigeria to their World Watch List – ranking it the 9th most dangerous country for Christians.
But despite the violence and persecution – the United States has turned a blind eye to the situation.
Although Christians (including children) continue to get slaughtered in Nigeria, Biden decided persecution wasn’t really “that bad” …
… so he removed Nigeria from the State Department’s list of Countries of Particular Concern (CPC), angering Christians everywhere.
Morning Star News reported:
“The U.S. State Department on Nov. 17 removed Nigeria from its list of Countries of Particular Concern (CPC), those that engage in or tolerate violations of religious freedom. Christian Solidarity International President John Eibner, among other aid and advocacy group leaders, criticized the move.
“Removing this largely symbolic sign of concern is a brazen denial of reality and indicates that the U.S. intends to pursue its interests in western Africa through an alliance with Nigeria’s security elite, at the expense of Christians and other victims of widespread sectarian violence, especially in the country’s predominantly Christian Middle Belt region,” Eibner said in a statement.
“If the U.S. CPC list means anything at all – an open question at this point – Nigeria belongs on it.”
Turning a blind eye to religious persecution is unconscionable.
Our hearts break for the lives lost in Nigeria, and we stand in solidarity with families grieving such unspeakable losses.
May our heavenly Father grant them peace that surpasses all understanding, and fill them with His supernatural presence.
We must not forget our Christian brothers and sisters in Nigeria – who continue to be persecuted by those who hate Christ.
May we remember them in our prayers, and never stop interceding on their behalf.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” – John 3:16-17
