Sudan demolishes another church, but MPs block school on Sundays

Sunday, August 6, 2017 | Tag Cloud Tags: , ,

(Worthy News) - The Sudanese government demolished another church on Wednesday (2 August), the day after Members of the Khartoum state parliament rejected an order by the Minister of Education for all Christian schools in the capital to open on a Sunday.

The Baptist Church in Omdurman, across the Nile, just west from the capital Khartoum, was on the list of 27 churches designated for destruction last year by the Sudanese government, which claims they were in violation of the designated purposes of the land they were built on.

The EU Special Envoy for Freedom of Religion or Belief, Ján Figeľ, raised this issue in March during a visit to Sudan and was told some of the demolitions had been temporarily stopped.

However, since then at least two more churches have been destroyed and a church worker killed when he tried to intervene. [ Source (Read More...) ]

Hebrews 13:3  Remember those who are in bonds, as bound with them; and those who are ill-treated, since you are also in the body.

Revelation 6:9-11  And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?  And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

  1. The world Christian community has to focus now at India, the largest so called democracy now shifting towards a Talibanized Hindu rule under the RSS rulers of India. The person who killed the father of the nation Mahatma Gandhiji was Godse, who was a RSS soldier.

    Thank GOD, when India got independence, it was led by Pundit Nehru who was a Hindu by birth, but a solid agnostic. But he greatly admired certain things of other religions, was fully disgusted by his religion of birth. He greatly admired the work of the minority Christians and Christian missionaries in improving literacy and healthcare, the real Good Samaritan service.

    When Dr. Billy Graham met him in February 1956, in his first visit to India, he told that Pundit Nehru is a pro-Christian. Personally, Pundit Nehru thanked Dr. Billy Graham for his ministry in India. The Nehru family has shown special love for Mother Teresa and the minority Christian community of India.

    Now, the new administration of India is a minority bashing administration; especially targeting the defenseless Christian minority. Since their religious teachings are based on love and forgiveness, it is quite an easy target for the radical Hindu wing to attack them. The Hindu religion is a religion of tolerance, the Hindu rulers of India down through the centuries were hospitable people towards the Christians and Jews; but the radical side of the Hindu religion has skyjacked Hinduism now in India.

    More attacks against the Christians are spreading every day in India. Even through persecution, Christianity is spreading in India. Once Christianity was the attracting religion for the downtrodden people, now the middle and upper middle class are embracing the Christian faith by the thousands. This conversion of the Hindus by the thousands is taking place, like movie stars etc; the radical sector of the Hindu religion is greatly alarmed. The readers of the Worthy News, please pray for India.
