    The study is incomplete. The mild or ignored coverage of this growing world epidemic/ potential genocide of people who truly practice and identify with the Christian faith should give us all cause to cry out to Abba Father, hold strong to our faith and pray without ceasing! We must not continue to slumber and ignore the spiritual and physical persecutions happing around us. The agenda to destroy is the theme in all cases. May God touch Hearts of those who hate and persecute us for the sake of peace. May Christ deliver us from all that is evil. In Jesus Holy Name We pray, Amen!

Ask God to have mercy on our brothers and sisters in India. “When

    If God uses “pay back” as a way to mete out justice, then Christian persecution has barely begun. Christians have been persecuting others since they burned down pagan temples, starting in the year 315 CE, and that was just the start. The history of Christianity as persecutor is well known and was, in many cases, far more horrific than what is happening today.

    I certainly don’t advocate for the persecution of anyone, but it’s equally important to remember that Christianity has been one of the worse persecutors in history. If you really believe in Bible God, you might want to ponder if this is His idea of payback.

      Are we to conclude that you have become the judge and juror of today’s Christian’s in support of our continuous prececutions from those bent on destroying the church of God? If so, then this dialogue must cease with your validation of this hate red, malice, wickedness and discrimation that now plagues the children of God. These acts are often overlooked or suppressed as Christians are often reminded to practice Mercy and love for the sake of peace. Ironically, it is usually their oppressors that remind them of these virtues while continuing to inflect pain. My the peace of the Lord find you! For the sake of his sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world! Jesus I Trust in you!

        I’m not judge or jury. Religions always kill each other – particularly the monotheistic ones because their holy, sacred scriptures tell them to. I’m simply wondering, if there really is a God, whether He/She/It would be a little peeved at all the inhumanity Christians have propagated in the past, and whether it might be time for some payback.

        If I had my way, everyone would stop practicing religion and all the religious persecution on all sides would come to an end.

      Nations conquering nations is not the same as Christians persecuting people.

      Soldiers and conquerors for the kingdom were hardly what I would consider Christian.

      Also, it was a common practice for townspeople to become whatever religion their new King was. Regardless of what religion, the people knew they were expected to be the Kings religion, if they didn’t obey they were killed. This was their culture and customs.

        I know you’re trying to defend Christianity, but you don’t need to lie and make stuff up. There were plenty of faithless kings and faithless peasants but there were also many great saints, all of whom chose freely (then as now). There is no bad scandalous Chistian history, only examples of imperfection in a society striving for perfection.

          NO! You are not going to write off the horrors perpetrated by the RCC. NO! You cannot change history. Christianity – the Church – the organization; not just individuals, has perpetuated untold misery on humans since it was founded. Take a look at some of the toys of the RCC back in the day: http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/vatican/esp_vatican29.htm

          As for scandal – if centuries of priests raping children, and being protected by the Church isn’t scandalous, then I don’t know what is.
