Ignorant Christians

It has been estimated that more Christians have been killed for their faith in the 20th century than have been martyred in the total history of Christianity. The whole sad record here

A human rights activist with more than 25 years' experience in ministering to persecuted Christians claims that many Christians are "ignorant" of the extent of persecution globally; reported here. A random search will highlight so many incidents that it takes a major incident to hit the headlines. Groups such as Compass Direct and the Barnabas Fund keep watchful eyes on the frontlines of persecution around the world. Meanwhile, for more fortunate Christians secure in their comfort zones it is not beatings, burning or worse but a battle for bedfellows. 

Christ knows what He thinks of it!

  1. It should also be remembered that Islamist attacks on Christians are often excacerbated by their perception of pro-homosexual Anglicans, which serves to fuel their hatred.
