Christians Are Being Persecuted And Killed In Nigeria


For the past couple years, Compendius has written about the persecution and killing of Christians in select parts of the world. As Christians we must all embrace each others' struggle and pray and proactively work to improve things for our brothers and sisters in the faith worldwide.

The terrorist group Boko Haram has been slaughtering Christians in Nigeria in big numbers, in conduct that must desist. Nigeria is half Christian and half Muslim. According to the Baptist Press, "The publicly reported Christian casualties in Nigeria last year were greater than the Christian casualties of Pakistan, Syria, Kenya and Egypt combined. In fact, Nigeria alone accounted for almost 70 percent of Christians killed globally. This makes Nigeria the most lethal country for Christians by a huge margin."
