Al Shabaab strikes Kenya school, killing three Christian teachers
Al Shabaab extremists killed three Christian teachers in Kenya Monday, the attackers justifying the carnage by saying it was impermissible for 'infidels' to teach children.
The Somali extremist group that tends to conduct raids across the border in a predominantly Muslim region of Kenya came to the primary boarding school in Kamuthe early in the morning while teachers were sleeping.
âThe Al Shabaab knew our residential rooms,â a Christian teacher who escaped said. âThe attack is well planned. It is a conspiracy between the Al Shabbab and the local Muslim community.â...
âGod be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah. That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health upon all nations.â God bless America so that America can continue to be a blessing by spreading the gospel throughout the world.
Backwoods Duck Farmer:::::: Thank you for your profound comments. I am in sad agreement with you. In spite of Godâs great blessings upon America, we still are saying, âGod bless America,â instead of America being thankful for the many blessings that we ALREADY enjoy! It is time for America to wake up and bless GOD!
...patience and glorious fortitude to bear up under persecution like thr Church the world over does daily. Perhaps, after all these years of theological and practical degradation in the visible Church, after all these years of God patiently staying His hand, we will experience what it's like to be purified by fire. We can take confidence that those flames will burn the rubbish and make the gold shine brighter.
Should the wicked triumph in this land (though it will only be temporary as Christ will subject His enemies), I'm afraid every prayer we didn't pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters will come back to haunt us. I pray fervently that God would change the hearts of this country and especially of my generation, but most of what I see is a continual loss of freedom, a growing, burning hatred against biblical Christianity, and a steady destruction of everything that made the homeland free, prosperous, and safe. Sometimes I begin to think that perhaps young people don't realize what they're doing, that if they could just be told what's at stake they would change their ways. But I know that isn't the case. God must change their dark, nihilistic, hearts and minds for them to wake from their sleep. And if and until that happens, we can expect every comfort, freedom, measure of safety, and perhaps every bite of food and drink of clean water that we took for granted to be cut off from us, bit by bit. It'll make the "attacks" on people like Jack Phillip's look like peaches and cream. Why would we be any different from the other nations God has so ferociously judged for their wickedness? Just because we're America? If and when those days come, may our King give us the sublime patienc
Some christians in this country take for granted the fact we can go to church and go home and not think twice about safety except buckling the seatbelt in comfy, safely designed vehicles. Some of us take for granted the fact that we can go shopping, fill our fridges with almost anything we want, and go to sleep with a full gut in our comfy beds and not think twice about safety (except maybe tripping over a slipper or stubbing our toes in the dark). And yet, we can forget how many rivers of blood, sweat, and tears were shed to give us the safety we enjoy every day. Worse, I think it's also easy to not realize that the enemies of the church and of freedom are quickly rising to power in this country - and they have millions of gullible minions at their disposal.
