Christianity “is at risk of disappearing in some parts of the world.”
“Evidence shows not only the geographic spread of anti-Christian persecution, but also its increasing severity.”
And political correctness is preventing the kind of global response that any other group would receive in the same situation.
It is something that many here in the West can easily overlook — the intense persecution happening to Christians all over the world.
Here, we think of Christianity as a dominant religion. However, there are parts of the world where Christianity is the minority, and even places where it is illegal.
We here at Christian Life Daily have written on the persecution happening in China, parts of Africa and Asia, and the Middle East.
The fact is that so many Christians are being persecuted that the level has reached “near genocide levels” according to a report recently published in Britain.
In fact this report, led by the “Bishop of Truro, the Right Reverend Philip Mounstephen” found that Christians are now the most persecuted religious group worldwide.
So why don’t we hear more about these egregious acts? Why do we hear of the wrongful persecution of so many other religions and not that of Christians?
We are not saying that the religious persecution of other religions is okay — it is not.
However, if Christians are in fact the most persecuted religious group in the world, why do we not hear more about what is happening to our brothers and sisters?
Well, it is the general consensus that the media in the West practically ignores the horrors happening to Christians in order to undermine Christian influence in the world.
What’s worse is that even conservatives in influential governmental positions, particularly in Britain for this report, have done little to nothing to help their Christian brothers and sisters suffering in other parts of the world.
In fact, British commentator Andrew Brown said that the conservative government in the UK, “has done almost nothing to support Christians abroad. It did not offer asylum to Asia Bibi, the Pakistani woman convicted under that country’s monstrous blasphemy law. It has sucked up to Saudi Arabia, a country where public Christianity is illegal, Christian migrant workers are treated abominably and where the corpses of executed criminals are still crucified.”
Here in the US, we have seen how those in the far left are fighting against Christian influence in the Constitution. It is as if they have forgotten everything our founding fathers fought for and the freedoms that were determined for everyone in this country to have.
Now, we are seeing our freedoms trickling away as many in our government and populace are supporting bills that see us more and more restricted and our Christian values more and more criticized and hated.
Due to all of this, immorality is skyrocketing and it looks as though everything that was built here is falling apart at the seams.
President Donald Trump has said that he will help persecuted Christians and that he stands by the Christian values that this country was founded upon, but it remains to be seen if he will be able to make a huge difference in the downward spiral we have now found ourselves in.
We can see this- Christians are under attack and we must do something to help. Whether it is international mission work, or work more local, we all have a part to play in what happens to the world that God has placed in our care.
We are the body of Christ and are called to action to be His hands and feet here on Earth. Others see His light through us, and we are meant to work for Him and for His will.
If you are worried about your freedoms, call your local government representative and tell them your views. If you feel for those in other parts of the world who are suffering, find a mission to work with or even simply donate to help our brothers and sisters.
And shout out what is happening to everyone you know. Many people are walking around in a haze that has been created to keep them blinded to what is really happening around the world.
Let people know what they are blinded to and how they can stop the cycle. God has put all of us here to play a part in this world. Not one of our lives was created in vain.

We know that prayer is the most powerful thing that we can do to help our Christian brothers and sisters. Our Heavenly Father hears us when we speak to Him in His Son’s Name and we must pray and ask Him to use us to help Christians everywhere and to protect them and bless them and guide all of us to do His will.
God is always with us and we know that “If God be for us, who can be against us?” Whatever Christians are going through at this present time, we are all in the capable hands of our Heavenly Father and we know that our souls are safe with Him.
