Christmas Day Bombings

The last thing I want is for my Blog to become one of doom and gloom, especially at this time of year, however ever since reading the article on Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani and the fact that he has not only been imprisioned but ALSO sentenced to death as a result of his faith, has made me was to SCREAM, when will all this voilence end, the attacks on innocent people, people who have done nothing wrong, other than believe in God WHICH IS NOT WRONG.

 

You know what I find quite strange is that you don’t find many stories on the news much like this one where the tables are turned, where the Christians did the killing of the Muslims and whatever other religion or belief that think it is OK to kill people because their beliefs are different to those of yours. WHY is that?? Because the Bible tells us “Thou Shall NOT KILL” Exodus 20:13.

Should we not ALL as HUMAN BEINGS, strive towards peace, and getting along with one another regardless of our belief system. If you are reading this and you are one of those people that believe you need to kill those that do not CONFORM to your belief system, WHAT JUSTIFIES THAT, WHAT JUSTFIES THE KILLING OF INNOCENT PEOPLE. Because they do not believe what you believe.

 

How many children have now become orphans because of some sensless killing. How many people who could have become soething more than just their circumstance have now been killed.

 

Now I assume that I will take some heat for this blog post, to be very honest I DO NOT CARE, I am proud to say I am a Christian, I am proud to say I love Jesus. WHY?? Because even though we too do not believe what you believe we do not go around Killing people because of it. We live our lives according to God’s word.

Now I am not saying that ALL religions or people that are of a certain religion, I am merely stating the fact there are those people out there that are infact part of certain religions that believe in killing people because they believe in something other than your beliefs.

 

Ask yourself this, if the tables were turned and it was the Christians going around Bombing your place of worship because they do not like the fact that you believe not what they believe, how would you react? How would you react of your son/daughter/mother/father/brother/sister were one of those people who had died in the bombing? How would you react?

 

So as much as I cannot physically do anything about the Bombing I pray that I can be a voice for those people who have lost their lives for Jesus, and I am doing it through this Blog.

  1. Thank you for posting this, I havent had the chance to watch the news but its so sad! breaks my heart to read about it. God Bless You for sharing it with us.

  2. Bernadette, I’m a Coptic Orthodox Christian (ie. an Egyptian Christian).
    In Egypt we suffer from similar events!

    On Christmas 2010 (we celebrate Christmas on the 7th January), some Muslims shot Christians as they were leaving church after Christmas mass.
    On New Years Eve 2011, a church was bombed in Alexandria by Muslims.
    On different dates, churches have been demolished, set on fire, broken in to, and there are many many more, but these are only an example.

    • Hi Mike,

      That is terrible, I just cant understand how people can justify violence to make us see their way of life, or to make us believe what they want us to believe. I wish there was more that I could do but a part from praying the only other thing I can do is write about it.

  3. Bernadette. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but, the church is just as guilty of murdering and torturing in the “name of Jesus”. Not as much now as in the past when there is documeted evidence of the brutality of the churchs. Some examples – the crusades, the inquisitions, the conquistadors, the witch hunts.

    One could even argue that our own country with its tremendous christian and jewish influence government is doing the same thing to other countries and people that do not share our beliefs.

    The universal law of love – the one all of us know – is so simple. Yet, why is it so hard for us to follow?

    • Yes I agree with you, I’m not denying that fact, its just that you don’t hear it as often, the fact is those people that died were innocent but because they believed in something not everyone else believed in they paid a price of death, which is wrong. Regardless of their belief.
