The global persecution of Christians is the unreported catastrophe of our time
Imagine if correspondents in late 1944 had reported the Battle of the Bulge, but without explaining that it was a turning point in the second world war. Or what if finance reporters had told the story of the AIG meltdown in 2008 without adding that it raised questions about derivatives and sub-prime mortgages that could augur a vast financial implosion?
Most people would say that journalists had failed to provide the proper context to understand the news. Yet thats routinely what media outlets do when it comes to outbreaks of anti-Christian persecution around the world, which is why the global war on Christians remains the greatest story never told of the early 21st century.
In recent days, people around the world have been appalled by images of attacks on churches in Pakistan, where 85 people died when two suicide bombers rushed the Anglican All Saints Church in Peshawar, and in Kenya, where an assault on a Catholic church in Wajir left one dead and two injured.
Those atrocities are indeed appalling, but they cannot truly be understood without being seen as small pieces of a much larger narrative. Consider three points about the landscape of anti-Christian persecution today, as shocking as they are generally unknown. According to the International Society for Human Rights, a secular observatory based in Frankfurt, Germany, 80 per cent of all acts of religious discrimination in the world today are directed at Christians.

The above are all the secular media sees and reports. They bury the anti-Christian cleansing that is going on in Moslem controlled countries. Let’s face it, Christians ain’t popular because we believe in morality and the 10 Commandments, and NOT a ‘moral relativism’ that secularism preaches. I recall how I shivered when in college 45 years ago the topic of “situational ethics” came up and seeing how that ‘innocent’ discussions became the foundation for today’s moral relativism. And that was at St. Joseph’s College of Indiana.
We are now strangers in our former “homeland.” And we must not forget that this planet is not our true home, that is with our Father and His Son, not on this blob of rock and water.
Do you suppose if all American chrstians simply started going to Black churches all this persecution would stop?
True, this planet is not our Home. We are merely visitors here.
