Islam at war with Christians?
The Islamic world is waging a war on Christianity, Mission Network News reports.
4/27/2012 Middle East (Mission Network News) – There’s a war raging on Christianity, but hardly anyone knows about it. While those in Christian circles are aware of the issues, the secular press has largely ignored the problem. Some believe it’s malicious. Others says it’s been done out of pure ignorance. Whatever the situation, the war rages on, and the Voice of the Martyrs is rallying Christians to be “The Voice.”
Todd Nettleton with the Voice of the Martrys says, “The Bible talks about us being at war in a spiritual sense. Spiritually, yes, there’s definitely a war between Islam and Christianity. And in many places Christians are under attack because of their minority status, their evangelism activities, or for other reasons.”
This attack by Muslims on Christians is profound, yet unreported. “If you are a Muslim today, and tomorrow you say, ‘You know what? I want to be a Christian,’ everywhere in the Muslim world that makes you an apostate. It literally puts you life at risk whether it’s from government authorities or from your own family. To leave Islam and follow another religion is really a capital crime.”
Muslims oppose Christians sharing their faith with Muslims. However, if a Christian talks about the Gospel, they’re accused of insulting Islam and are arrested.
According to Nettleton, “As you see that consistently in Islamic nations, it’s hard not to think there is a war on Christianity.”
