Did You Know It Was This Bad?

They are destitute and mistreated

Many of the recent headlines you’ve seen regarding Christian persecution prove what the 2022 Parliamentary/Advocacy Report from Open Doors found:

  • Persecution of Christians is at an all-time high: “Across 76 countries, more than 360 million Christians suffer high levels of persecution and discrimination for their faith—an increase of 20 million since last year.”

  • “The triumph of the Taliban has boosted other jihadist groups and extremism in Africa and Asia. Islamist groups now feel more justified and confident in their strategies of terrorism and violent attrition.”

  • West African nations are experiencing “an unfolding pattern of violence.” Believers “encounter a variety of pressures that affect every sphere of their lives (private, family, community, church and national). … The vast majority of this violence stems from Islamist groups.”

Intense suffering—on multiple levels—is a way of life for many of our brothers and sisters overseas. Hour after hour, day after day. The Bible tells us this is not a new phenomenon ...

“Some faced jeers and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment. They were put to death … they were killed by the sword. They went about … destitute, persecuted and mistreated” (Hebrews 11:36-37).
