Christian Persecution Escalates
Watchdog organization Open Doors USA reports that the number of Christians killed for their faith rose by a stunning 60 percent in the last year and the trend is projected to increase in future years.
Most of the murders occurred in Africa, where 300 Christians were killed in Nigeria and thousands were forced to leave their homes. Elsewhere in the country, nearly 2,000 people were hacked to death or shot since January 2020, as a way to drive them off their farmland. And in December 2020, federal troops in Ethiopia forced Christians from the Ark of the Covenant church, marched them into a square and opened fire, killing 750. And these sinister acts are also common in many other areas throughout Asia, such as India and especially China, under the reign of Xi Jinping.
Says Brian Wilson of the Red Pilled Channel, “Just as Christians were ruthlessly persecuted in the centuries following the death and resurrection of Christ, it seems this new millennium has a similar intolerance for those who choose to follow his righteous life.” Wilson breaks down more cases of Christian persecution around the world and wonders what the coming years could have in store for those who follow Christ.
