    • “The atrocities against Christians have gone unchecked and risen to alarming apogee with the country’s security forces and concerned political actors looking the other way or colluding with the Jihadists.” — The Nigerian Voice, May 14, 2020
    • Earlier this year, Christian Solidarity International issued a “Genocide Warning for Christians in Nigeria.”

  • “This [using a church as a personal toilet] is only the latest incident … [I]t has become extremely common for Greek Orthodox Churches to be vandalised and attacked by illegal immigrants on Lesvos…. As a deeply religious society, these attacks on churches are shocking to the Greek people and calls to question whether these illegal immigrants seeking a new life in Europe are willing to integrate and conform to the norms and values of their new countries.” — Greek City Times, May 16, 2020.

The following are among the abuses Muslims inflicted on Christians throughout the month of May 2020:

The Slaughter of Christians

Nigeria: From January 2020 to mid-May 2020, Muslim terrorists massacred at least 620 Christians (470 by Fulani herdsmen and 150 by Boko Haram). According to a May 14 report:

“Militant Fulani Herdsmen and Boko Haram … have intensified their anti-Christian violence … with hacking to death in the past four months and half of 2020 of no fewer than 620 defenseless Christians, and wanton burning or destruction of their centers of worship and learning.

  1. Suffering persecution is an integral part of following Jesus:

    John.16
    [1] These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.
    [2] They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
    [3] And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.
    [4] But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.

    Many Evangelical churches teach that Christians will not suffer these things, but will be “raptured” out of them. There is an obvious conflict of doctrine here.
