Indeed, the Fulani herdsmen are attacking, but it is not a religious attack in general. They are brutally retaliating against the new law that does not allow them to graze their cattle freely. This has been their way of life for hundreds of years and the legal action has started a powder keg. It does almost seem to have been done just to stimulate conflict. Especially since they are now heavily armed (not part of their traditional ways). It is also not legal to carry a gun in Nigeria, so guns are not just laying around for anyone to buy and use. Like with Boko Haram, Muslims are also being attacked and killed. And like with Boko Haram, this appears to be part of a much greater evil, to incite conflict and even war, with the ultimate goal of a false peace under the rule of a one world system (antichrist). Let's be prayerful and careful, especially not to participate in rhetoric that is inflammatory. Let's use the spread of the gospel as our weapon of warfare as it is the only instruction we have from Jesus in the light of wars and rumors of wars.

I read the English version of the Koran and as with most who have read it, I was very impress with the commentary in it on the Bible. However, the contradictions in the Koran are almost endless. Even after reading over half of the Koran, I found myself cheering its writers to keep trying to get things correct. Sad, the ending of the book denouncing and hating Christians when the beginning had so much promise in dialogue with one another. I had a chance to speak at a Mosque in Oklahoma but decline because the invitation was from someone so naive. When they would attack me, what would he do? Again this is sad when Moslems feel only that they should out number the other religions to pass and control them. They feel through the later book of the Koran that they are killing for the glory of Allah. Very sad.

The first thing believers should do is offer prayers and supplications asking God to deliver the persecuted Christians from harm....for what is better getting the attention of your national (Corrupt) government or inquiring of God? The second thing we aught to do is realize that these families ( if not suffering for sin) should rejoice and be exceedingly glad that they have been counted worthy to suffer for Christ sake and to offer prayers that those who persecute them are saved through their actions!!! The third is to pray that this persecution leads to the repentance and conversion of this Muslim government!
