Backlash In France After Teacher’s Decapitation

Four days ago, Samuel Paty, a French history and geography teacher was beheaded in Paris for showing caricatures of Muhammad in class.

Yesterday, France unleashed a broad crackdown on Muslims accused of extremism. This comes amidst much anger for the brutal murder of Mr. Paty.

The situation is tragic on so many levels. As believers in Christ, we know the answer for Muslims and non-muslims is the same – the gospel of Jesus Christ.

His death, burial, and resurrection is the only thing that can save. Please pray for people to go and tell the people of France the gospel. Please pray for Christians there to have boldness to share the love and grace of Christ.
