Christian Persecution

 

What is Christian Persecution?

OpenDoorsUSA

 

Christian Persecution is any hostility experienced from the world as a result of one’s identification as a Christian. From verbal harassment to hostile feelings, attitudes and actions, Christians in areas with severe religious restrictions pay a heavy price for their faith. Beatings, physical torture, confinement, isolation, rape, severe punishment, imprisonment, slavery, discrimination in education and employment, and even death are just a few examples of the persecution they experience on a daily basis.

 

According to The Pew Research Center, over 75% of the world’s population lives in areas with severe religious restrictions (and many of these people are Christians). Also, according to the United States Department of State, Christians in more than 60 countries face persecution from their governments or surrounding neighbors simply because of their belief in Jesus Christ.

  4. See God open doors to evangelism (Colossians 4:3)
  5. Boldly share the gospel (Acts 4:29)
  6. Forgive and love their persecutors (Matthew 5:44)
  7. Be granted wisdom in covert ministry work (Acts 9:23-25)
  8. Remain joyful amid suffering (Acts 5:41)
