Report: Christianity Most Persecuted Faith Worldwide

Prophecy Sign:  Rising Christian persecution

True biblical Christianity and those that take God's word literally will be hated even by other segments of Christendom that seeks a more inclusive, justice focus gospel, (see our other blog entry for today), that takes offence at the preaching of the cross and repentance. 

Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. Matthew 24:9 NIV

Report: Christianity Most Persecuted Faith Worldwide
Americans take religious liberty for granted. It is the First Freedom, guaranteed by the First Amendment. But four of five people around the world lack the freedom to worship and live faithfully. And the percentage of the world’s population lacking religious liberty recently edged upward. Attacks on Jews hit a recent peak. Even Americans cannot afford to take their freedoms for granted. The Pew Research Center, with Peter Henne as lead researcher, recently issued its latest study on religious liberty. The report makes for a sad read. Many organizations address religious persecution, which occurs in virtually every Muslim and authoritarian state, plus a diverse mix of other nations. Pew also assesses equally threatening social antagonism, ranging from discrimination to hostility to violence.
