Posted on 12/25/2011 7:15:45 AM PST by LSUfan
An explosion ripped through a Catholic church during Christmas Mass near Nigeria's capital Sunday, killing at least 25 people, officials said. A radical Muslim sect waging an increasingly sophisticated sectarian fight claimed the attack and another bombing in the restive city of Jos, as explosions also struck the nation's northeast.
The Christmas Day attacks show the growing national ambition of the sect known as Boko Haram, which is responsible for at least 491 killings this year alone...

Ah but I thought satan had to have Gods permission to attack Gods people.............
You might require a definition for those two words.
...and in regards your first question...
“And I just gotta ask: God, why were these people ripped apart on Christmas?”
You don’t think God’s judgment and condemnation is going to be without evidence do you? If people aren’t harming others and being disobedient there isn’t going to be much evidence to be used in the “judgment?
A friend of mine has little suicide vest stickers he puts on the 'C's of those...
Oh I forgot, was all about the oil? The lack of decision on the pipeline by this unpopular president leaves us in even greater danger of being held captive by oil--back in Feb. Iranian ships were finally allowed to dock in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and move through the Suez Canal. Then in the fall, the Muslim Brotherhood said the Suez Canal threatened to shut down the Canal.
Now Iran wants to "practice" shutting down the most important oil mobility canal of all--The STRAIT OF HORMUZ
Is this President [who no one knew little about] on our side or their side?? I sometimes have to wonder; but it seems so "crazy conspiratorial" in thought.
Foreign affairs should be a focus in this next election. Getting Bin laden won't cut it. Downed US drones--we can go there too..
The economy will only survive if: our government under the watch of President Obama can protect us from all enemies, foreign and domestic; as well as disrupt national security threats to the United States and its interests. How's Obama doing so far?
Better check my tires to do my part, will go further on a gal of gas. :((
I hate those stickers--thoughts of defacing them and those like them come to mind; but know it is illegal..but the thoughts were there and how... ;)
All Satan has to do is make a bet with Him (don’t take my word for it, ask Job)...
Did you notice how low the pump price is lately?
For the first time in living memory the price DROPPED before a major driving Holiday.
Just in time to take the pressure off of approving the Keystone XL pipeline...
A compassionate conservative coined that phrase.
Only if you get caught.
Besides the bomb vest stickers can be cleanly peeled off...
The price of gas went up 15 cents on Wednesday in Michigan.
Mohammed swims in a sea of blood, screams of pain and terror echo in his ears, and he smiles. Hell is his soul. Torture and pain are his blessings upon man.
Islam is a cancer on humanity itself. It celebrates death, fear and agony.
Got Satan? No? Go to a mosque near you.
If you think that was bad, just look at what He allowed to happen two days before Easter.
Saracens are the Devils disciples . Take a look at my previous post. That says it all.
Yeah, I don’t understand that either, but at least Christ was in on the plan.
These people didn’t agree to be blasted into smithereens by devils.
That is a good answer. I am truly searching for answers. How God doesn’t have these people blow themselves up on the way to do the dirty deed, immediate consequences, that would be understandable. This concept that the good will win eventually is really a challenge for me to grapple with.
yeah, I know. And that seems so unfathomable.
No one said it would be comfortable here on Earth. Our rewards are in Heaven. Live a good life and you will get your reward.
Remember, this isn’t The Garden of Eden. While we may be good, there are very bad people out there. And lessons to be learned by the circumstances they cause.
Your reward is not waiting here....
I wonder what would happen if “radical” Christians blew people up at various locations around the world. If “radical” Christian groups operated in special “cells” in various countries, plotting to assasinate particular leaders, plant bombs, launch various attacks on embassies, etc.
I wonder what would become of this group, if it called itself Christian ... I wonder what the world would think of all Christians if this were the case.
It comes with the job.
Rom 8:36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
