Christian Post Headlines: A seeming contradiction (Osteen vs. Nigeria)

Seen in today’s online Christian Post:

Headline #1:

Joel Osteen at Night of Hope DC: God Wants to ‘Supersize’ Your Peace, Joy

Joel Osteen didn’t disappoint the tens of thousands of people that filled the Nationals Park baseball stadium Sunday evening expecting him to „plant the seed of hope” in them. He not only delivered a potent dose of hope, but also rolled out an American Idol star and his own mother to share their uplifting stories of survival in the face of death at the „Night of Hope” event in Washington, D.C.

Headline #2:

Pastor, 20 Worshippers Killed in Nigeria Church Attacks

A pastor and at least 20 worshippers were killed when gunmen suspected to be Islamist militants opened fire in two separate incidents targeting worship services in northern Nigeria Sunday.

Do we really believe that God has one plan for the United States – Prosperity? And another for  Africa and other  countries where Christians are slaughtered more and more? Are we not all the body of Christ? Did Christ not say, that whoever would follow Him must take up their cross and follow Him?  Matthew 16:24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 25 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.

Please remember to pray for our brothers and sisters in Nigeria and all over the globe who are suffering in persecution.

Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.—Hebrews 13:3
