Nigeria

Bad guys with guns need to be killed by good guys with guns (the State).  Nigeria, surely, has more people living in it with weapons than a terrorist organization.  The only reason they haven't ousted the cell is because of the geography.  When the organization is at the back-door of the government, then they will care, and then it may be too late.

 

In the meantime, Christians need to be praying for both justice and mercy to reign in this region that's afflicted by Islam.  We need to be praying for the gospel to spread, and be ready to embrace refugees - widows and orphans - when called upon.

This is extremely sad, but I have concerns whether or not the Nigerian gov. can actually handle this themselves.

Why?

This problem has been going on for quite a long time, I believe that if the problem is to be fixed, it will require assistance from other countries, would you agree?

Nigeria needs physical and spiritual help...it always has. Corruption is too much, the law means absolutely nothing, people think they can do what they want, when they want (and they technically can as long as Nigeria remains a mess) and the people in power don't often do enough to help the situation. The only reason things like this are making the news now is because Boko Haram aren't backing down.

I agree with Noel but what country is actually going to assisst fully? A lot of people see Nigeria as a lost cause.

 

Serious prayers need to happen concerning those running the Nigerian government. The country itself and its people need prayer.

 

Goodluck Jonathan is no longer in power... to many people's delight.. Not sure what to make of the new president though...time will tell.

An imam and pastor spread tolerance in Nigeria. They team up to preach religious tolerance. The two men are former leaders of militias that once battled each other. Then they discovered forgiveness. Now, their story is a tool of persuasion.
 
This was three years ago.

James Wuye and Imam Muhammad Ashafa are the subjects of short Wikipedia articles, which say that they are both alive, six years later, and they are still trying to find ways for Christians and Muslims to live together.
