Christians and Muslims in Pakistan Stand United after School Attack

A Pakistani bishop says the church is “totally with the families of our Muslim brothers and sisters,” after the Taliban attacked a school in his province killing more than 120 people.

Most of those killed in the attack were children.

The Taliban say the attack was revenge, after Pakistani authorities killed their members.

At least six fighters entered the military-run school in the Pakistani province of Peshawar, while exams were taking place.

It’s thought the Muslim extremists fired indiscriminately.

The Anglican Bishop of Peshawar, Rt Revd Humphrey Peters, told Premier: “There’ll be three days mourning in the province… and then we have cancelled all our Christmas celebrations because it is very disturbing – very very disturbing.”

“We are totally with the families of our majority community Muslim brother and sisters. We are in solidarity with them.”

“I really can’t say it, but it’s become a conventional thing… Peshawar is so quiet now. Everyone is so sad.

“I will question the intelligence agencies. Where are they? Why can’t they pick it up? What are they there for?

“We need a lot of prayers. The church, being the marginalised and the minority and the poorest of the poor, we are worried about the security of our churches and our institutions.

“It is very very expensive to keep two or three guards. Security-wise we people are really weak.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?


If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
