The recent barrage of attacks on Christians in Egypt, including on members and churches of the nation's Coptic denomination, are of a scale unseen in modern times and being described as satanic, according to sources living in the country.

Not to minimize the attacks, but it was just a few years ago that the christian community in Egypt protested with the various factions in that country to over throw the dictatorship that was there. It is never a good thing to ignore the principles of God, so maybe what the Lord is trying to get to come from the Egyptian Christian Leadership is genuine admission that they may have made a mistake and real contrition and repentance. Than watch and see what the Mighty God our Saviour would do on their behalf.
