Nigeria: Churches: Bomb Targets

Two failed bomb attacks on churches in Jos, Nigeria, have magnified the fears of Christians in the region. On Sunday, March 20, a bomb exploded prematurely, killing three men who were carrying it toward two churches. The intended targets were worshipers at the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) and the nearby Church of Christ in Nigeria (COCIN)

The same day, a bomb planted at the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Church on Jengre Road in Jos failed to detonate. The two men who placed the bomb escaped on a motorcycle. It is not known whether the two attempted bombings were related or committed by the same group.

In neighboring Bauchi state, more than 4,000 people were displaced in a series of night attacks by Muslim Fulani tribesmen that began March 10. In the Tafawa Balewa area, 463 homes, 11 shops and 13 churches were burned.

Attacks by the tribesmen have continued even after the deployment of security personnel. Locals attributed the attacks to a group of 2,000 militants from other northern Nigerian states who assembled in the area. The attackers reportedly wear army and police uniforms.

Anti-Christian violence has increased in northern Nigeria since January of this year, when 200 armed Fulani youths attacked churches and Christian homes. Sectarian violence between Christians and Muslims in Nigeria began in 2001 with a large-scale riot in the city of Kaduna.

This is something that I’ve been hearing a lot about for awhile, and sadly, I’ve seen it happen as well. The biggest producer of atheists and non-believers in the world is….the Christian church. What? How is that possible? The body of Christ is going out there spreading the gospel and telling people the truth about God, about the sacrificial death of Jesus, and about how the only way to heaven is to accept that death for the atonement of our sins!

That may be something the church is doing, and that is what we are supposed to be doing. But, what about when those people we reached out to start coming to church? What about the young people that come with them? Do we really care about them? Do we love them like Christ loves them and us? Or are we just counting the numbers and praising God that we had 10 more people than last week? Are we answering the questions that they have or just preaching at them and hoping that it hits home? 1 Peter 3:15 says that we should “always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks us to give an account of the hope that we have in us”. If we can’t answer people’s questions about what we believe, why should they stay? Continue Reading The biggest cause of atheists is……
