KIDNAP & RAPE OF GIRL CHILD: Emir’s Act Not Different From Boko Haram’s

It has been days yet I have not been able to find the exact words to describe my angst and bewilderment at the mindless and extreme height of abuse of privilege and power by those we ought to look up to. Just days ago, the whole world went agog at the release of 21 girls kidnapped by the religious maniacs in the name of Boko Haram.

In describing the mode of dress appropriate for women in church, the apostle Paul exhorts them to dress “modestly” with “decency and propriety” then goes on to contrast immodest dress with the good deeds which are appropriate for those who profess to be true worshipers of God (1 Timothy 2:9–10).

But there remains an often overlooked group of ‘unreached’ people who desperately need the gospel. This group consists of men and women who have experienced deep levels of church…
