Three dozen members of one Christian church in Iraq disappeared over the course of a week, and only one returned, according to a minister who is warning of the increase of persecution of Christians in that violence-ridden nation.
The warning from Rev. Canon Andrew White is being reported by Voice of the Martyrs, the ministry to persecuted Christians around the world.
"Things are bad for everybody in Iraq. I said them (church members); tell me what has happened over the past week. And the people went through what had happened and I realized that 36 of my congregation in that past week [had] been kidnapped," White said. Only one was returned....
Every Christian shouild pray fervently for the persecuted church. There are thousands of believers being slaughtered daily for their faith in Jesus Christ. It is estimated that more Christians have lost their lives in the past few years, than during the Roman Catholic Inquisition which killed millions and millions of Christians for not submitting to the pope.
