Top 10 places Christians are persecuted (WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES)

Christians have been persecuted since its birth. Throughout history men, women and children have been killed for serving God and, unfortunately, today is no different.

Despite the presence of first-world laws to protect Christians in countries like the United States, religiously-fueled hate crimes continue to run rampant.
Sadly, several countries across the globe have no legal protections for people to safely spread God’s Holy Scripture or to worship the King of Kings. These countries are threatened by the freedom that comes with accepting Christ into the hearts of their citizens and have slaughtered the faithful to prove it.

Christians have been victims to attempted genocide, arrested and executed without trials and are often tortured.

A group of Christians from Ethiopia were slaughtered by ISIS militants in Libya. Unfortunately, Libya is one of several places the Islamic extremists are in power and Christians are targets for propaganda videos.
Across the world Christians continue to be killed simply for believing in the divine presence of God. Those who turn from Him and accept the lies of the devil continue to seek the faithful in an effort to eradicate all of God’s followers, but we have never been fully stomped out.

Christians will continue to spread the Word of God, no matter the ways the devil convinces people to attack us. Remember, God stands by our sides and helps us face even the fiercest storms. Remember this when you pray for God to touch the hearts of Christian executioners. Remember this when you ask God to move in these troubled countries. Remember that God will always find a way to free his followers.

    “You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”
    Unless you precede every article like this with an admission of the Church’s own crimes of persecution, you have no moral high ground to condemn others. Christians have been persecutors since the beginning. Where are the Ebionites, the Marcionites, the various Gnostics and Theodicians? What about the persecution of Jews and Muslims? What about the later persecution of Protestants? What about the persecutions of indigenous people around the globe? The Catholic Church has no high horse to sit astride and criticize others for doing the very same things it is (in)famous for. .


    this is not good but i now God is in watch there will be solution soon.May God take the souls of those killed we meet in heven
