Franklin Graham has been declaring the world on Christian persecution, stating: “Churches are burned, looted, and bulldozed. Pastors are frequently targeted and martyred”, as we read in the full report:
Hostility toward Christians in the United States is on the rise and will grow unless believers stand up for their freedoms of religion and conscience, stated BGEA President Franklin Graham in a recent message to ministry friends.
Graham noted how the persecution of Christians is escalating worldwide.
“In many countries, [believers] are being systematically tortured and slaughtered by Islamic radicals hellbent on eradicating any vestige of Christianity. Churches are burned, looted, and bulldozed. Pastors are frequently targeted and martyred,” the evangelist reported.
Furthermore, in dozens of other countries, Christians are severely oppressed by government authorities and routinely denied any chance at an education and jobs.
“They live as second-class citizens, shunned and mocked by their neighbors who despise Christ,” Graham shared.
And while Christians in America may have it better, Graham noted how they are already targets of progressives, LGBT activists, and the anti-God forces of secularism.
“The Bible says that we should not be surprised by such hostility and persecution,” Graham stated before referring to 2 Timothy 3:1,12.
Still, the outspoken Christian leader stressed the need for believers in the U.S. to stand up or face growing hostility.
“We must not underestimate the power of godless, immoral forces who are seeking to impose their anti-Christian agenda on all of us,” he said.
Presently, Graham is traveling state-to-state for his Decision America Tour. So far more than 71,000 people have joined Graham at the events in the states where he and his team have been, and more than 22,000 people have committed to pray for America and its future, to stand firm on the Word of God, to live out their faith boldly, and to actively engage in the current election process.
The most horrific persecution of Christians is happening right now. Christians are being killed and tortured in the most demonic and cruel ways you can imagine, and its happening in Mexico. Hundreds of thousands of people slaughtered, countless innocents forced under the yoke of the most horrific and sinister tyranny. But there is hope, for tens of thousands of Christians are raising arms and fighting back. I did a whole documentary on this, called Hell Across The Border, a documentary unlike any other. Watch it, show it to everyone you know, your friends, your family, churches, everyone:
