BANDITS KILL PREGNANT WOMAN OVER CHURCH OFFERING!
I saw this awful headline yesterday. A pregnant young woman who was entrusted with the Sunday church collection was ambushed by armed robbers on her way back home and in the confusion that ensued, she was fatally shot!
This happened in Port Harcourt, Nigeria, and he sum of N50,000 (approximately $200) was taken. The general consensus is that the criminals were probably part of the congregation or had inside information.
Whatever the case, two lives have been lost as a result of rampant lawlessness and greed. The question arises again; what is the solution to the state of anarchy in our society? The answer remains the same. Only God can pull us back from the brink. Turn to the Lord and forsake iniquity!
May God grant the departed souls eternal rest!
