PERSECUTED

I wanted to share the latest report from Davis Shibley and his ministry called Global Advance... They are doing a great job bringing the Gospel to hostile areas of the globe... Read and pray, Karl





“With persecution of Christians growing worldwide it’s more important than ever that our persecuted brothers and sisters receive encouragement from believers in other nations. In the last several weeks, we’ve witnessed severe attacks on Christians in Iraq, Egypt, Pakistan, Nigeria, and even in Britain. Recently there has been a widespread imprisonment targeting evangelical Christians in Iran (where the church is experiencing colossal growth). Persecution and even killing of Christians is spiking in many parts of the world.
Yet interestingly this major story is glaringly underreported by most of America’s press and news outlets. Many, but certainly not all, of these hostile acts against Christians are inflicted by radical Islamists. Until recently, Christians in the United States have been insulated from assaults against them and their faith. That may be changing as America’s population becomes more diverse, as moremisguided young zealots become radicalized, and as atheists become increasingly vocal and antagonistic.
Still, here in America it’s easy to turn and look the other way – away from the suffering of our persecuted brothers and sisters, but that’s really not an option for a true follower of Jesus. God’s Word is abundantly clear that we are to stand in solidarity with the church worldwide, especially those who are experiencing injustice. We are to plead their cause...”

Deliver those who are drawn toward death, and hold back those stumbling to the slaughter. Prov. 24:11
