Christian Genocide Rises While World Just Watches

WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)-- Following the release of its latest World Watch List -- ranking the top 50 countries in which Christians face the most persecution for their faith -- Open Doors has accused world leaders of callous indifference, according to The Christian Post.

Open Doors CEO David Curry said ISIS is conducting a genocide against Christians in Iraq while the West just stands by and watches it unfold.

"It's not that Christians are collateral damage; it's that they're being targeted, and wherever they are being targeted, there are future problems," said Curry.

Although the U.S. and its allies are launching airstrikes against ISIS, Curry hasn't seen any attempts to improve the plight of refugees on the ground.

"I am very disappointed by the response of the U.S. government and State Department in the protection and advocacy for persecuted Christians," he said.

Yet even while Iraq is having a genocide, North Korea still occupies the top slot of the WWL.

"It is number one on the WWL," said Curry, "the most brutal and dangerous place in the world to be a Christian because the government requires and enforces with hostility a total dedication to the hero worship of their leader ... Christians are the number one enemy of the state ... and they treat them with great brutality."

Another Asian nation on the WWL is India, which has become even more dangerous for Christians after the new Hindu nationalist government recently took power. And Christians in African nations have endured even more persecution with Somalia ranked at 2nd, Sudan at 6th, Eritrea at 9th and Nigeria in 10th place on the WWL.

The WWL includes information on both the degree and type of persecution in each nation listed.

  1. As Luke 21 has TWOFOLD meanings... LUKE 21:12 But before all these (Signs listed before), they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake. 13 And it shall turn to you for a testimony. 14 Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer: 15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. 16 And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. 17 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake. 18 But there shall not an hair of your head perish. 19 In your patience possess ye your souls. So does Hebrews 11 Hebrews 11:35 Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: 36 And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: 37 They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; 38 (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. 39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: 40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect....

  2. We are instructed to pray for our political leaders and all in authority . Apostle Paul said it is the most important thing to do , so that we can live a peaceful life and that the Gospel may have freedom to work . Lack of doing this will result in much of this we read about . I do not like politicians much , but I pray for them often , and do see results as well . Ernest prayer avails much !
