Pakistan: 14 Dead, Dozens Injured as Muslim Suicide Bombers Attack Churches

Politicians and the media continue to pretend that ISIS is an anomaly. But long before anyone had heard of ISIS, Christians were being killed in Pakistan, Egypt, Iraq, Nigeria, and other countries where Muslims outnumber Christians.

Many Christians in the Muslim world face daily persecution. Meanwhile, most Christian leaders in the West are too worried about being called names to speak against the ideology that fuels the brutal deaths of their brothers and sisters.

Suicide bombers are willing to lay down their lives to bring death. Can we not at least speak out to defend life?
Reuters—Bombs outside two churches in the Pakistani city of Lahore killed 14 people and wounded nearly 80 during Sunday services, and witnesses said quick action by a security guard prevented many more deaths.

A Pakistani Taliban splinter group claimed responsibility.

Islamist militants in Pakistan have attacked Christians and other religious minorities often over the last decade or more.

Many Christians, who make up less than two percent of Pakistan's population of more than 180 million, accuse the government of doing little to protect them, saying politicians are quick to offer condolences after an attack but slow to act to improve security.

Sunday's blasts occurred minutes apart in a majority Christian suburb of the eastern city. Police said it seemed they targeted two churches, one Catholic and one Protestant, that are very close to each other.

After the explosions, enraged residents protested and lynched two suspects, police said.

"I was sitting at a shop near the church when a blast jolted the area. I rushed toward the spot and saw the security guard scuffle with a man who was trying to enter the church. After failing, he blew himself up," said witness Amir Masih.

"I saw his body parts flying through the air." (Continue Reading.)

@david, is there hadeeth where it tells muslims to leave their own family if they disbelieve in allah?

@ All Muslims,

Be fear of Holy God! Almighty God never allowed criminal nations go unpunished. God’s wrath must fall on you Muslims who believe evil as god and worship him. You will die fighting each other. Killing 160 school children and teachers in recent months won’t be your last national tragedy unless Muslims in Pakistan rise up and fight against false terrorist teaching by the name of True and Holy God.

We Christians believe, trust and worship True, Holy and Righteous God of Justice. You Muslims learn lesion from history. World history teaches God punishes evil and corrupt nations from beginning till today of human history. Don’t you see Muslims are fighting against Muslims and other nations hate them since Muhammad established Islam? Don’t you see Muhammad himself was punished before he died by poison? When will you realize the truth that Islam is cursed by God? Remember, after your death there will be no chance for correction.

Remember, Christians live by words that come from our Heavenly Father not by word of evil Islam. Christians believe they do not die. See what the Bible says; Revelation 20: 4 ”... And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They[a] had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”

See again what the Bible talks about False Prophet like Muhammad Revelation 20:10 “ And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”

Muslims come to sense and give up evil Prophet Muhammad and receive Jesus Christ to live with Him for ever and ever as the Bible promised. Unless you change it is granted Pakistan won’t be change and Pakistan would be slave of Evil, its soils would be red with innocent blood.

In Christianity a martyr is one who dies for the faith, while in Islam a martyr is one who dies killing for the faith.

Denmark: Muslim majority on local board, Christmas tradition canceled

above news can be found in the link as

As soon as they become majority in a board they say christmas should not be celebrated .


Will they similarly protest against celebration of christmas in a muslim majority town in europe/usa as soon as they become majority?(remember still 30 percent of the town may be christians)

or will they be kind enough to allow all cultures/tradition and traditions to florish in a muslim majority town as we are allowing them now

just wondering?

what are your thoughts into it?

things look scary ahead for my grand children

Paige said...

Hi Mahsheed,

True, indeed.

Your insightful comment reminded me once again of the counterfeit nature of Islam. It steals from faiths that existed to set people free, and becomes a religion that sets people in chains.

Paige said...

The current situation may look bleak for our grandchildren, but the tenuous strands that we see appearing in society usually mean that something's about to snap.

Islam has always been able to exist in countries around the world because it has become very skilled at morphing itself into something acceptable to the average person.

It is also able to exist because society is in a stage of chronic disease called political correctness (not that I advocate anarchy). This is also an untenable state in which to live because it requires denying one's own better judgment.

It seems to me that Islam will find it harder to sneak under the radar from now on, and that people have pretty much had their fill of political correctness.

What the snap will be I do not know, but while we can be sure that things will be different for our grandchildren, there is a possibility that this present situation may precipitate positive change if we're willing to fight for it.

Satan is not a Muslim. He has no loyalty to Islam (though he uses it to his advantage), and is just as interested in getting Muslim killed as he is in anyone else.

I'm not suggesting we should be apathetic and inactive against this evil, we need to fight, but I think we need to make sure our worldview lines up with the truth, and not the 24 hour cycle news.

Mahsheed said...

Paige, agree it is a counterfeit, in the sense of being what one could imagine is Satan's conception of God and religion. And yet there are so many wonderful Muslims that I know, and that is testament to God's grace and the human spirit.

TWO and NOT four policemen were killed, the rest were busy watching a cricket match in a nearby shop. That too, when they already had information of the bomb threats and knew that at least four men would attack. Angry residents later locked those policemen in that very shop, so they couldn't escape.

The security guards who stopped the terrorists from entering the churches were Christians who voluntarily guard the premises during all the church services, not the state provided police.

@ Paige,

Thanks for your thought provoking writings.

We know from teaching of Jesus Christ that devil comes in disguise of sheep clothing; meaning evil comes with good stuff to attract us. Islam was presented to Muhammad by Devil as true religion a total submission thus made devil’s way clear to control whole Muslims like a puppet. Otherwise a conscience mind can’t do such heinous crime and whole Muslims in Pakistan can’t keep quite not eradicating evil laws hating non-Muslims.

Satan is not Muslims it is true but Islam is devil’s way to control Muslims totally like a puppet with a string. String of Devil is Sharia Laws, a source of all evil power.

David, I ran across this youtube page on Richard Dawkins Twitter. IT IS BRILLIANT. It's by an Arabic speaking ex-muslim. His name is the "Masked Arab". Check out his channel and promote his videos. His latest on Child Molestation and Pedophilia...

Attention please! Don’t Ignore
Subject: Suffering of Asylum Seekers/Refugees in Bangkok, Thailand
These days Thai Immigration has started the crackdown against Asylum seeker or Refugees
all over in Thailand. Asylum seekers from different countries are living here in Thailand some
of them have been accepted as refugees others are waiting for their interviews or
determinations from "UNHCR".
From last two months situation had got worst...As most of Asylum seekers don’t have valid
permits to stays in Thailand, as they had fled their countries to save their lives, they came here
with nothing they are hardly surviving here.
Now we are scared to death if Immigration catch us they will put us in detention center (IDC)
and that place has got no Human rights more than 25 people are placed in a 20 by 20 room
and only have expired rice to eat and tap water.
Three persons had died in IDC due to suffocation. No proper medication is provided to patients
in IDC. Even children are being detained in IDC the youngest one is about 3 months old. I don’t
know what kind of detention center is this where children are detained and they don’t even
care about their Health.
Most of the Asylum seekers are living on their own...they don’t have anything to eat or money to
pay rent because we are not allowed to work here. We are living here according to the laws of
this country we are not committing any crime.
We just need a place where we can live freely and peacefully. But now the Immigration is
dragging us out from our homes and detaining us, we have nowhere to go if we go back to our
country then it’s a certain death.
We have asked UNHCR for help but even they said that they cannot do anything about it.
We have children here who are deprived of Education, Healthy food, proper Medical treatment.
We are hardly surviving under such circumstances. Now because of Thai Immigration our lives
have become more miserable.
We are already half dead because of persecutions and life threats to us in our home countries,
if situation remains the same in Thailand we don’t know what will happen to us we are
helpless here, our only hope is UNHCR. But nowadays UNHCR is playing with us by giving us 3-4
years long interview dates. I think its against the law to give such long dates for
interviews...Nobody can give us back these years we are getting depressed everyday and
becoming patients.
If there is anyone who can help us, please help us by spreading our voice globally for our basic
Human needs. So people may know what's actually happening in Thailand.
Here we living in constant fear of getting caught by Immigration or police, even in our houses
we are not safe. They want to send us back to our home countries.
I have written to allot of NGO's, Churches and organizations but nobody is helping us.
Please spread these words as much as possible so the world may know, if anybody can get us
out of this miserable situation please do help us...
Everyday there is raid in different areas of Thailand and they are arresting us. More than 800
Pakistani Asylum seekers have been arrested in last two months they did not commit any crime
their only crime is that they are saving their lives, and living here peacefully.
Now we are at our last breaths please do something for us to get us out of this worst Situation.
These are words of my heart... please read it sympathetically Thank

Dear Nojmul,

Thank you for your kind words and your insight. I absolutely agree with you! (as usual). While Satan is not Muslim, Islam has all the marks of Satan in its conception, construction and doctrines. God bless you!


Just to clarify to others, I say that Satan has no loyalty to Islam as, examining the blue prints he drew up for Muslims, we discover that he not only wants Muslims to oppress Non-Muslims, but he designed apostasy laws to encourage them to oppress each other as well.

Satan has no favourites, and has designed Islam to serve his purposes. A brief overview of Islamic history shows that Satan's long term purpose is for Islam to destroys or enslave all around it, and then destroy itself. This is the testimony of history, not an opinion.

We know for a fact that Satan knows his days are numbered (Revelations 12:12), and we know he is no longer trying to build a kingdom for himself on earth where he can reign forever. No, Satan has read the Bible and knows he's been defeated and is headed for an eternity in hell.

What he can do now is present as many obstacles as possible to people's salvation and to people wanting to tell others about salvation! This sums up Islam!

Every aspect of Islam is designed to stop people asking questions (Surah 5:101-102), stop being saved (and telling people they have no need of salvation, just obedience is a pretty clever place to start), and just as equally, to stop people preaching salvation (by calling them Islamaphobes, threats and intimidation, demanding Shari'a law, standing on other countries' constitutional rights, or just beheading them).

Does Satan care about Islam and Muslims? Heck, no! But he does care about making sure they do not get into heaven!

That's why I like posting here because most people are not afraid of Islam, they're afraid of seeing Muslims die without knowing the saving power of Jesus!

The reason I do not give Satan 'all' the credit for all of Islam's progress is because he's not omniscient, nor can he know perfectly the hearts of men (Job is a good example!). Satan predicts how man will behave, but he cannot foreknow.

Also, we can see that Satan is not able to control all Muslims as Mahsheed mentioned. This is indeed evidence of the unenlightened grace of God as Mahsheed said and further evidence that Satan's power is limited.

I pray that Muslims whose hearts seek good, would come to realize that the greatest good can only be found in Jesus's decision to lay His life down specifically for them.

Islam is wrong, man does need salvation!

Peace and blessings,
