Scary Stuff!

April 9, 2019

I am always amazed when I read reports from countries where Christians are persecuted for their faith. The names of the countries on the Open Doors World Watch List which tracks 50 countries where Christians face the worst persecution, is really quite alarming. I sadly read a recent report from Pakistan, number five on the list, where four Christians were falsely accused of blasphemy by a Muslim couple. The result was an Islamic mob attack on the neighborhood where the couple lived. They displaced 200 Christian families from their homes and killed all of their pets and livestock. After a lengthy investigation the couple was arrested but not before many lives were turned upside down.

 

The fact that many Christians face extreme persecution around the world should not surprise us. Many of the missionaries we support are in these countries. The reports they share are often equally alarming. We praise God for the religious freedom we have as a country, however, we must never forget the tension that can come against the Gospel, and how quickly it can spread. Please pray and remain engaged regarding the persecution that many face.
