Christian Pastor Reports That On Average Forty Cases Of Persecution Against Christians Are Being Reported Every Month In India. Christian Pastors Are Being Shot, And Christians Are Being Beaten By Hindus

By Walid Shoebat

A Christian pastor has reported that on average, forty cases of Christian persecuted are reported every month in India. He also stated that Christian pastors are shot and Christians are beaten by Hindu nationalists. With all of this idolatry in India, we are reminded of that verse in Isaiah when he talked about the return of the Messiah:

In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats;

To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. 

When Christ comes, all of this paganism, which is part of the Antichrist system, will be destroyed.

According to the report, from Mission Network News:

 The persecution of Christians in India has been discussed, shared, and observed. In 2013, Open Doors USA put the country on notice, ranking them 31st on the World Watch List’s worst 50 countries for Christian persecution. But just four years later, the alarming rate of persecution has brought India to 15th, and the question is: why?

Erik Morsehead with Mission India shares, “In India, over 60 percent of Christians experience direct persecution…. Forty persecution incidents are reported per month on average.”

The spike in Christian persecution is largely because anti-Christian extremism in India is rising. And while India’s cities tend to be more diverse and accepting of minority faiths, Morsehead says attacks on Christians aren’t isolated to one region or demographic.

“It can take many forms…. Where we run our Adult Literacy Classes, we had one student who became a believer and that meant that her relatives and family stopped including her in family events,” he shares.

“Another one where we had a Church Planter, it meant that he was cut off from the village’s electricity and water supply and was depending on God for where to sleep while his neighbors threw dead animals at his house to show how disgusted they were with him making the decision to follow Christ.”

For some Indian believers, being a Christian even means dying for their faith.

“Pastors have been shot. Church members have been beaten…. It’s disheartening, but it also means that a lot of things are taking place, that God is moving in mighty ways and people are recognizing that. When people recognize that and they disagree with that, they’re going to do everything in their power to stop it.”

Mission India supports Adult Literacy Classes, Children’s Bible Clubs, and Church Planter Training. While they do get stories from the field about their participants facing hostility, there are also beautiful stories about how God is moving.

“We’ve had a lot of those moments where our Church Planters engage with these people who are just really bent on persecuting these Church Planters because they believe in Jesus. But over time as they interact with these Church Planters, their hearts being to soften and they become followers of Jesus!”

The persecutors need our prayers, just as Church Planters and Christians in India need our prayers. Morsehead asks, “Pray for those hearts to be softened. Pray for those who don’t know Him, that they would come to know Him.”

    There is nuance when it comes to reporting on the issue of nationalism. Telling everyone who loves their nation they are Nazis and ultra-nationalists isn’t going to win one any fans. It’s just going to needlessly and senselessly reduce your reader base.

    It sounds (and is) insane (to tell a person it is evil to love one’s country and countrymen).

    That’s why it’s important to articulate the nuance when addressing the rise of ultra-nationalism and how it’s being used to ferment war and persecute Christians, in the interests of Luciferians and for the cause of Luciferianism.

    I think being an immigrant and having immigrant parents makes it harder for one to understand, because they aren’t as deeply rooted in their nations culture, ancestry and origins.

    Christ did say there is no Jew or Gentile in Him. He also said there is no man or woman. Does that mean we go along with the lefts gender agenda now and assert that “men and women are EXACTLY the same”?

    Not everything stated in Scripture is purely literal. The Church has historically respected ethnic identities and a nations right to borders. There will be ethnic identities, tribes, until the end of time. Israel was divided into tribes, and this division was peaceful when they were living in obedience to God. They were divided into tribes but united as a nation, Israel. These tribes all worshipped the same God.

    Someone who is an American and their parents are American and their grandparents and great grandparents are American, and they’ve had family members serve in the military and die in wars fighting for America, is going to be much more rooted in their love of nation. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with this as long as this love isn’t being used as an instrument for evil.

    Every person who loves their nation must be vigilant against this, because there are internationalists who can and will use it for their own evil ends. In the same way as there can be powerful people within your own nation who will use a persons love of country to manipulate them for their own evil ends.

    Knowing how finance has become fiat and digital in modern times, and this control is largely in the hands of corporate financiers and controlled through central banks via usury, hasn’t made the situation any better for humanity. You can’t lose when you’re funding both sides (unless God intervenes and He won’t until we have repented).

    The point being, if you take better care to cover the nuance here, your readers will better understand where you’re coming from, what you’re concerns are, and how they/we are being manipulated through love of country. Again, making clear that love of country isn’t wrong or evil in and of itself. It’s natural, good and wholesome. It becomes evil when it’s used to manipulate a nations citizens for evil ends.

    I understand where you’re coming from. I agree with you 100% that nationalism is being used to normalise sodomites and paganism, and to divide and conquer. My point is I think you could be covering the nuances of this issue with much greater care.

    You’d reach more people if you did. First you need to understand that love of nation is natural and healthy in and of itself, and put yourself in the shoes of a person who is deeply rooted in one nation ancestrally.

    Dark times are already here but I suspect we haven’t seen anything yet…

    You can see what the problem is there are too many head choppers in that country so that they should be imported to all non head chopping nations so that they can continue their work there as well.

    Make sure you don’t bring any Christians into the Christian nations otherwise who will these head choppers attack but their own kind but a different version.

    Yes. North Eastern regions near Bhutan already has indigenous tribes that are East asian by race, mostly nagaland etc, they are already fighting for an independent Christian nation.
