From Nigeria to Indonesia, Christians are under siege in virtually every single country that makes up the Muslim world. Christians are the victims of countless acts of discrimination, depredation, brutality, and murder. These problems are so widespread and systematic that it can rightfully be called the new Holocaust. This time, however, the perpetrators of which I speak aren’t wearing swastikas. They are wearing scarves, kufi and hijabs.
Boko Haram has been fighting to establish an Islamic state in northern Nigeria, Africa, killing more than 1,000 state security forces and Christians.
African Al-Shabaab controls most of southern Somalia, where it imposes a strict sharia law in order to turn the entire country into an Islamic state. The militants have killed many Christian converts from Islam and have vowed to kill all the Christians in the capital at Mogadishu.
There are Christian communities across this world that are being subjected to relentless attacks and are on the brink of extinction in the name of the Muslim religion. Palestinian Christians in Gaza and the West Bank are under attack. Assyrian, Syriac and Chaldean Christians in Iraq are being persecuted. Coptic Christians in Egypt are discriminated against. Evangelical and Orthodox Christians in Eastern Ethiopia and Eritrea are being stoned and run out of town. Armenian Orthodox Christians in Turkey; and Maronite Christians in Lebanon are being killed.
In the very near future some Christian communities will cease to exist. Did you know that a Christian is killed every 5 minutes? The only trace of their past existence may be a footnote in Western history books, but more importantly, their names have been written in The Lamb’s Book of Life.
We hear a lot from radical Islam about jihad (holy war in the name of Allah), but you think . . . that’s a long way from us here in the United States. I tell you to think again, look at 9/11. Open your eyes and ears. Jihad is only a breath away. In the United States we seem to be afraid to offend Islam. Why is the world not afraid to offend Jesus the Christ and His followers?
You will find the enemies of Christianity already embedded in America. There is a deep divide between Muslim and non-Muslim. They use the same Quran as those in the Middle East, maybe they just don’t believe it all.
The Nazis thought they had the Final Solution for their Jewish problem. Now it’s the radical Muslims that believe the Final Solution to the Christian problem is extermination . . . Holocaust!
Jim Bakker asked the question on his TV show that aired on July 9th. “Do you know why the world hates Christians? You are hated because you will be rejoicing over the tribulation days ahead while they will be facing hell. You will be celebrating because of our soon coming Jesus.” He is our King of kings and Lord of lords.
