One thought on “Nigerian Pastor Assassinated Near Yola Adamawa State Remembered

  1. Fellow Christian brothers, you need to come out boldly and defend yourself against these extremists. Applying Mosaic law won’t hurt since that is the language they understand. Again, it is up to you if you want to go by New Testament law quote “N” quote. If they hit you on your right face, turn your left one. At times, you may not be alive to turn the other face. All I have been trying to say is, it is not a sin if the Christian brothers harm themselves with weapons.
    Candid advise.
