Terrorists Targeted Christians Families on Easter in Pakistan
Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and Holly Meade, and BarbWire’s Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.
Christians on Easter were targeted in Pakistan, solely because they are Christian. Bombs went off in a park where families and children were celebrating Easter and they were targeted by Islamic [terrorists].
Mat Staver: Matt and Holly, this was a tragedy that was incredible that happened, actually on Easter Sunday. . .Islamics against the Christians. I spoke to Donya, Donya is a student at Pensacola Christian College who went with us on one of the Covenant Journey trips. She was born in pakistan and she has indicated that there is an increasing level of violence beign perpetrated against Christians. And what we just saw on the news is evidence of that.
Holly Meade: You know, I don’t think we really understand the level of persecution that these Christians in these third world countries are experiencing. While we’re in Easter services celebrating God and it was wonderful, these were actually…people were giving their lives for the very sake of the gospel.
Mat Staver: You know, Matt, we take forgranted often times the freedom that we have in this country. And we see our brothers and sisters that are engaging in a picnic, an Easter celebration, and now they’re in the process of preparing for funerals…70+ people were killed in this tragedy.
Matt Barber: Well not just killed — martyred. It’s heartbreaking to see our brothers and sisters in Christ targeted like this by islamic radicals. But Jesus told us this would happen. In Mark 13:13 He says “Everyone will hate you because of me, but the one who stands firm ’till the end will be saved.”
