Just Minutes Before Bombs Went Off, Christian Children at Zion Evangelical Church Were Asked in Sunday School if They Would Die for Jesus Christ

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Islamic State claimed responsibility on Tuesday for the bomb attacks in Sri Lanka that killed 321 people in what officials believe was retaliation for assaults on mosques in New Zealand.

The latest number of dead in the Sri Lanka church bombings of Christians and Catholics on Easter Sunday morning has now risen to 321 people, which may go higher still. Even more shocking is that the Islamic State, or ISIS, has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

“Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” James 4:14 (KJV)

Outside of the Zion Evangelical Christian Church, the bombings in Sri Lanka on Sunday also targeted Catholic churches like St. Anthony’s Shrine in Colombo, the capital; St. Sebastian’s Church in Negombo; as well as high-end hotels in Colombo, including the Shangri-La, the Cinnamon Grand and the Kingsbury. The Sunday School kids at Zion were asked if they would “die for Jesus” just minutes before the bomb went off. They said they would…then they did.

The Democratic Left in America still cannot bring themselves to call this for what it is, blatant  persecution of Christians and Catholics. But when 49 Muslims were killed in March, they were quite vocal with calls to protects Muslims and their freedom of religion. The Washington Post today said that if you were upset over the killings in Sri Lanka, then you must be a far-right extremist on a par with the Nazis. This is how the Left treats Christians, with utter contempt and unabashed hatred.

Minutes after Sunday School class said they would die for Christ, half killed in Sri Lanka bomb blast

FROM THE CHRISTIAN POST: Just minutes after expressing their willingness to die for Christ, half the children from one Sunday School class at Zion Church in Batticaloa were reportedly killed in the Easter Sunday suicide bomb attacks in Sri Lanka.

“Today was an Easter Sunday school at the church and we asked the children how many of you willing to die for Christ? Everyone raised their hands,” Caroline Mahendran, a Sunday School teacher at the church, said, according to Israeli public figure Hananya Naftali. “Minutes later, they came down to the main service and the blast happened. Half of the children died on the spot.”

The report comes as the death toll from the bomb attacks on several churches and luxury hotels in the island nation, where Christians make up less than 10 percent of the 20 million population, rose to nearly 300 Monday with at least 500 wounded. READ MORE



Islamic State claims Sri Lanka blasts, as government says probe making progress

FROM REUTERS: The claim, issued through the group’s AMAQ news agency, was made after Sri Lanka said two domestic Islamist groups with suspected links to foreign militants were suspected to have been behind the attacks at three churches and four hotels. About 500 people were also wounded in the bombings.

Three sources told Reuters that Sri Lankan intelligence officials had been warned hours earlier by India that attacks by Islamists were imminent. It was not clear what action, if any, was taken. President Maithripala Sirisena said he would change the heads of the defense forces following their failure to act on the intelligence.

“I will completely restructure the police and security forces in the coming weeks. I expect to change the heads of defense establishments within the next 24 hours,” Sirisena said in an address to the nation.

“The security officials who got the intelligence report from a foreign nation did not share it with me. I have decided to take stern action against these officials.” READ MORE

      From Columbine to Colombo, Sri Lanka. Recall how the Jewish terrorist asked the student if she’d die for Christ? then shot her in the head. Like David Hogg, another son of FBI agent?
      Was it Muslim? Jewish or Muslims working for zionist ends, like ISIS?
      Your “Useful” tool is now unleashed against our churches, hotels and innocents.
      Odigo Says Workers Were Warned of Attack

      Odigo, the Israeli instant messaging service, says that two of its workers received messages two hours before the Twin Towers attack on September 11 predicting the attack would happen, and the company has been cooperating with Israeli and American law enforcement, including the FBI, in trying to find the original sender of the message predicting the attack.

      I don’t know why Christians are upset about Christians dying, They are with God now, aren’t they?

      Strike the shepherd and the sheep will flee. The bombings are a terrible loss of life, but consider that in the big picture of things the church buildings are not the true church. True salvation comes to those that have no one to depend upon for their faith but Christ alone.
      If you recall at the time of Roman empire and the dismantling of the Temple the Christians were forced to abandon the building and they carried their gospel message to the rest of the world. A similar effect will take place as more icons and buildings are destroyed. Christians will be forced to represent their faith out in society without a pastoral shepherd telling them what to believe. They will certain mature in their faith.
