77 DEAD, 120 wounded in suicide bombing attack on Christian church in Pakistan

The religion of Satan targets more Christians in the Middle East as this war with Islam continues. But while these Christians may disappear from earth, Heaven rejoices as they eneter Heaven’s gates.



Our God is the Lord and he will not be mocked:

“I will execute great vengeance on them with wrathful rebukes. Then they will know that I am the Lord, when I lay my vengeance upon them.” –Ezekiel 25:17

CNN – A blast at a Protestant church in northwest Pakistan killed 77 people and wounded more than 120, a local official said.

The attack took place at the All Saints Church of Pakistan, in the violence-plagued city of Peshawar, about 120 kilometers (75 miles) from the country’s capital, Islamabad.

Two attackers struck right as services concluded, according to the Peshawar Diocese. “Suicide bombers entered the church compound from the main gate and blew themselves up in the midst of the people,” a statement posted on the diocese website read.

Choir members and children attending Sunday school are among the dead, they said.

The outside of the church was peppered with debris, and crowds of men and rescue officials covered in blood.

The Rev Humphrey S. Peters, Bishop of Peshawar, expressed condolences and called for prayers, but also struck a defiant tone. In a statement, Peters condemned the local government, calling the attack a “total failure” of official efforts to protect minorities.

Christians make up less than 3% of the population in the South Asian nation of 193 million.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for Sunday’s attack.
