According to a leading watchdog group, global levels of Christian persecution are at a record high. The number of Christians murdered on account of their faith rose 60% during the year 2020 with 91% of the violent killings for religious reasons occurring in Africa. Persecution is not isolated to just Africa, but is taking place in countries all over the world. Other forms of persecution are taking place daily with fellow brothers and sisters in Christ needing our prayers. Scripture tells us to remember those who are in bonds as being in bonds with them. The purpose of today’s program is to open our eyes to the extent of persecution taking place around the world.
Dr. David Curry with Open Doors USA joined Crosstalk to discuss the 2021 World Watch List for persecuted Christians.
