Beginning in April 1994, between 800,000 and 1 million people were killed in Rwanda over the space of about 100 days. During that time, many Christians killed each other. Hutu Christians killed Tutsi Christians. Tutsi Christians killed Hutu Christians. I heard this on this video and thought, “How awful. Why are people like that?” Why? Because their Christian identity was less than their tribal identity.
And when we think about it, isn’t that what we all face? Don’t we all line up our allegiances so much that we end up putting our Christianity aside? Be careful where you put your loyalty.
