Over 245 million Christians are persecuted around the world, some are being killed, mostly in Muslim countries

The ten worst countries for Christians are North Korea, Afghanistan, Somalia, Libya, Pakistan, Sudan, Eritrea, Yemen, Iran, and India.

Hmmm. With the exception of North Korea, Eritrea (partially) and India, there is something all those countries have in common. What, oh what, could it possibly be? Vernon Brewer doesn’t mention what it is, and in that circumspection he is in the broad mainstream. But will ignoring and denying the problem make it go away? Unlikely.

The estimated 64 million Christians in India are a tiny proportion of the population, comprising less than five per cent. The government is led by a Hindu nationalist party, BJP, which believes Hinduism is integral to Indian identity. Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), a militant nationalist group associated with BJP, has stated it wants to see all Christians gone from India by the end of 2021. Thousands of nationalist attacks against Christians take place every year with no consequence for the perpetrators.

“Vernon Brewer: Over 245 million Christians are persecuted around the world – Some are being killed,” by Vernon Brewer, Fox News, November 2, 2019:

…It’s easy to go about our lives and forget that in places like Nigeria, Iran and North Korea being a Christian can often lead to death. After all, for the most part, persecution for our faith isn’t something most of us face….

According to Open Doors’ 2019 World Watch List, over 245 million Christians experienced high levels of persecution in 2018. That’s more than the entire population of Brazil — the sixth-most populous country in the world.

The persecution these men, women, and children face varies. Some are denied jobs, disowned by their families, or thrown out of their communities. Others face imprisonment and unspeakable physical abuse. Some are forced to literally run for their lives. And at least 4,305 Christians died last year, simply for choosing to follow Jesus.

That means approximately 11 believers will die today. Eleven died yesterday. And 11 more, give or take, will die tomorrow.
