Organizația Open Doors USA a publicat miercuri, 11 ianuarie 2017, lista celor 50 de țări în care creștinii au fost persecutați pentru credința lor în anul 2016. World Watch List prezintă gradul de amploare al actelor de persecuție și intoleranță religioasă într-un top al acestor țări, disponibil pe opendoorsusa.org.

Open Doors USA raportează 21 de țări în care minoritatea creștină este persecutată în proporție de 100%. Astfel, aproximativ 215 milioane de creștini au avut de suferit pentru convingerea lor religioasă anul trecut.

Este al 25-lea an în care organizația realizează acest raport și, potrivit lui David Curry, CEO-ul Organizației, se înregistrează cea mai gravă situație de până acum.

Un creștin din 12 trăiește într-o zonă sau cultură în care creștinismul este ilegal, interzis, sau pedepsit. Totuși, lumea nu vorbește foarte mult despre valul șocant de intoleranță religioasă, spune David Curry, citat de christianpost.com.

Raportul înregistrează 1207 creștini uciși pentru credința lor, în afară de zonele Coreea de Nord, Irak și Siria, care se află pe locurile 1, 6 și 7 din alarmantul top. De asemenea, 1329 de locașe de cult au fost atacate sau distruse pe întreg globul în anul 2016.

Cele 21 de țări în care minoritatea creștină este persecutată, în proporție de 100% sunt Coreea de Nord, Somalia, Afganistan, Pakistan, Sudan, Siria, Irak, Iran, Yemen, Eritrea, Libia, Nigeria, Maldive, Arabia Saudită, India, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, Kenya, Turkmenistan, Qatar și Egipt.

În Coreea de Nord, o persoană poate fi încarcerată sau omorâtă doar pentru deținerea unei Biblii. Cetățenii acestei țări sunt forțați să creadă în familia conducătorului Kim Jong Un, ca singură divinitate. Mii de oameni au fost uciși sau trimiși în lagăre de „reeducare” pentru practicarea credinței lor.

În Somalia, deși puține persecuții sunt raportate, creștinismul este interzis. Există mici comunități, care își practică credința în ascuns, iar dacă sunt descoperite, creștinii sunt uciși fără vreun proces anterior. În Somalia toți cetățenii sunt înregistrați ca și islamiști, indiferent de credința lor.

Pakistan este cea mai violentă țară în ce privește opresiunea creștinilor. Aceștia sunt ținta ridiculizărilor și persecuțiilor publice. Poliția nu îi protejează corect și persecutorii se autoimpun.

Au fost arse din temelii orașe întregi, oameni au fost arși de vii, sunt tot mai multe fete violate și luate cu forța în căsătorie islamică, în încercarea adepților musulmani de a obține un loc în rai, prin această metodă de convertire, a spus Wilson Chowdhry, președintele Asociației Creștine Britanice din Pakistan.

Odată cu creșterea organizației teroriste Stat-Islamic în Orientul Mijlociu, sute de mii de creștini din Siria și Irak sunt nevoiți să-și părăsească locuințele pentru a nu fi uciși. Câteva mii de creștini, refugiați în tabere din Erbil sunt în totalitate dependenți de ajutoare umanitare.

Persecuțiile au crescut de la an la an, după ce în 2013 se anunța dublarea victimelor persecuțiilor creștinilor față de 2012, iar 2014 și 2015 au fost anunțați în presă drept cei mai sângeroși ani pentru creștini. În ultimii 14 ani topul celor de la Open Doors USA are pe primul loc Coreea de Nord, unde zeci de mii de oameni suferă pentru credința în Iisus Hristos.

Today is the alternate International Day of Prayer – Open Doors World Watch List: Pakistan, China, Egypt, Nigeria, India, Iran, Central Asia – Video for each country from Open Doors

PAKISTAN:
Central Asia consists of 5 countries: Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. Over 60 million people live in this region, but currently less than 10% profess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Although the degree of persecution varies across the 5 nations, one factor remains consistent: Christians in Central Asia face constant pressure for their faith.

Find out more about persecution in Central Asia by visiting the Open Doors website: http://www.opendoorsuk.org/countries

CHINA:
China, with a population of 1.3 billion people, has seen tremendous changes. These political, economic, and social changes have brought changes to the church, too. Sixty years ago, there were perhaps 750,000 evangelicals in China. Thirty years ago, there were an estimated three million. And today, conservative estimates of evangelicals in China range between 60 and 80 million. This growth, representing one of the largest revivals in the history of Christianity, came in the face of persecution…

EGYPT:
Egypt is one of the world’s greatest civilizations. The land of the Pharaohs. The birth Place of Moses. A place of refuge for Jesus as a child. Visited by the disciples Mark and Peter and the apostle Paul. One of the first nations to embrace Christianity. But 13 centuries ago Islam changed all that. Today, Islam is the official religion of Egypt. Christians are free to follow Jesus in this Muslim dominated society. However, this freedom has its limits…

NIGERIA:
The plight of Nigerians is often in the news. But the message is generally connected to the economy, oil and corruption. The sometimes-fierce battle between Christians and Muslims is rarely reported.

INDIA:
India possesses a population of almost 1.3 billion people, more than 80% of India’s peoples are followers of Hinduism, Only about 3% of India’s population claim to be Christians. These followers encounter growing persecution…

IRAN:
Today, the Islamic Republic of Iran is home to 75 million people, with 98 percent of the population adhering to Islam. At least 450,000 followers of Christ live in Iran. And while Christianity is an officially-recognized religion in Iran, in practice, many Christians face oppression from their neighbors. Christian believers in Iran continue to place their hope and trust in God. They ask for our prayers as they bravely share Christ with their families and neighbors. God is moving and the church is growing. Please continue to pray for God’s grace and endurance for the followers of Jesus in Iran.

CENTRAL ASIA:
Central Asia consists of 5 countries: Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. Over 60 million people live in this region, but currently less than 10% profess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Although the degree of persecution varies across the 5 nations, one factor remains consistent: Christians in Central Asia face constant pressure for their faith.

Open Doors USA 2013 world ranking of persecution by country – North Korea still #1, Mali newcomer to list #7

WWL-Main-Download

Information and watch list from the non denominational group http://www.OpenDoorsUSA.org. Rankings released January 8,2013

North Korea – For the eleventh year running, this is the most difficult place on earth to be a Christian. In a country of 24.5 million, there are just 400,000 Christians. North Korea is one of the remaining Communist states, and it is vehemently opposed to religion of any kind. Christians are classified as hostile and face arrest, detention, torture, even public execution. There is a system of labor camps including the renowned prison No. 15, which reportedly houses 6,000 Christians alone. But despite severe oppression, there is a growing underground church movement of an estimated 400,000 Christians. We have written on North Korea several times in the past year. At the bottom are some noteworthy articles you can read in order to become more familiar with the brutal hardship that is endured by the Christians of North Korea. You can also read about North Korea’s hidden gulag, below all of the links, and visit the website that published The Hidden Gulag Report.

African countries surge – Open Doors reports that persecution of Christians in Africa vastly increased in 2012. Mali is a newcomer on the list and holds the No. 7 position. Tanzania (No. 24), Kenya (No. 40), Uganda (47) and Niger (No. 50) also moved onto the World Watch List and Ethiopia is one of the strongest risers (from No. 38 to No. 15) on the list. In addition, the small African country of Eritrea made the Top 10 for the first time at No. 10. Libya climbed from No. 26 to No. 17.

Syria made the largest jump on the World Watch List. The country is No. 11 on the list, compared to No. 36 in 2012.

Christians are persecuted in at least 60 countries for their faith. They suffer interrogation, arrest and even death in some of the most dangerous and restrictive countries in the world. For 58 years Open Doors has supported and strengthened believers worldwide through Bible and Christian literature distribution, leadership training and assistance, Christian community development and prayer and presence ministry.

The Hidden Gulag

Second Edition

The Lives and Voices of
“Those Who are Sent to the Mountains”

David Hawk

Description: Based on extensive interviews with over 60 defectors and more than 40 satellite photos of North Korean political prisoner camps, the report calls for the dismantlement of the vast North Korean gulag system in which 150,000 to 200,000 are incarcerated.

From Page 158: In the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, crimes against humanity are committed against persons sent to the political penal labor colonies. Evidence shows that:

1. Perceived or suspected “wrong-doers” or “wrong-thinkers,” or in some instances, persons with“wrong-knowledge,”123 and/or their family from the DPRK State Security Agency,124 which refuses to acknowledge the deprivation of freedom and refuses to provide information on the fate or whereabouts of those persons with the intent of removing those persons from the “protection of law” for a prolonged period of time.

2. The abducted persons are subjected to deportation or forcible transfer from the area in which they were lawfully present without grounds permitted under international law.

3. The abducted and deported persons are deposited at distant, remote, penal labor colonies or encampments, where they are subjected to “imprisonment or severe deprivation of physi- cal liberty in violation of fundamental rules of international law.”129 These abductions, deporta- tions and the subsequent imprisonments all take place without any judicial process. There is no arrest, charge, trial, conviction or sentence, as provided in the DPRK Criminal Code and the DPRK Criminal Procedures Code.

4.The prolonged, indefinite detention of family members is a violation of Article 26 of the ICCPR, “…the law shall prohibit any discrimi- nation and guarantee to all persons equal and effective protection against discrimination on any ground such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.” The imprisonment of family members amounts to what the ICC Statute terms as “persecu- tion.” Most family members of suspected wrong-doers or wrong-thinkers are detained for the rest of their lives in sections of the prison camps termed “total control zones.”

5. Once cut off from any contact with the coun- try or world outside of the prison camp, including former family and friends, the imprisoned persons are subjected, usually for a lifetime, to arduous forced labor under extremely severe circumstances. This begins with the provision of below subsistence level food rations.

7. Prisoners are regularly subjected to beatings and sometimes more systematic torture for infractions of prison camp regulations and during interrogations.

8.On numerous occasions, prisoners compelled to observe executions (which are carried out publicly to demonstrate to other prisoners the severe consequences of escape attempts and/or non-compliance with camp regulations) …

9. Prison camp officials and guards are regularly able to exact sexual relations with female prison- ers under circumstances that have been judged to constitute rape or sexual violence …

IDOP 2013

There will be some confusion as to the dates for IDOP 2013. My understanding was it should fall on the second Sunday of every November, making it on November 10 for the year 2013. However, there is flexibility for the congregations who need to hold the prayers on a different Sunday, and some are doing just that. From researching this year’s Prayer dates I have learned that in our sphere there are the nationwide dates the prayers will be lifted to God in unison for the persecuted church:

  • In the United State on November 3
  • In Canada on November 10
  • In the United Kingdom and Ireland on November 3
  • In Australi from November 3 – 10  (these guys did it right)
  • In New Zealand November 10
  • In Switzerland November

Present sufferings, future glory

  Romans 8:17, 18

Now if we are children, then we are heirs – heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ,
if needed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing
with the glory that will be revealed in us.

Today, Christians in certain parts of the world face some of the worst persecution in history. How do they handle it? Only God can empower them to do so.

This year’s theme for the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church is: Present sufferings, future glory based on Romans 8:17, 18:

“Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.”

One thing that keeps Christians going when faced with persecution is the knowledge that Christ also suffered more deeply than we can imagine. He can identify with us when we suffer for him. Christ also strengthens us to meet any challenge.

Through the last 2000 years, another motivation for Christians being persecuted has been the knowledge that soon and very soon they would be going to meet their King. They would be in a place where suffering would be replaced by rejoicing with the Lord and fellow believers. As faithful followers of Christ, we share that hope of future glory.

This year let us remember and pray for all those who are suffering for their faith in Christ. Pray for their protection, comfort and perseverance toward their eternal goal of being glorified with Christ.

Please join us on November 10, 2013 and pray for the persecuted. Source http://www.idop.ca

Basic biblical teaching about persecution:

  • We must react under persecution as the Lord did. (Matthew 5:38-48; Romans 12:14,17-21; 1 Peter 2:21-23)
  • We are called to stand with those who are persecuted. (Matthew 25:31-46; Hebrews 10:32-38; 13:3)

  • Matthew 18:21; 28:34; Mark 10:30; Luke 11:49; John 15:20; 1 Corinthians 4:9; 2 Timothy 3: 12
  • Jesus warns and teaches about persecution:
  • Matthew 10:16-42; Luke 14:25-35; John 15:18-16:4

The apostles and first missionaries are persecuted:

  • Acts 4:1-22 – Christ’s supremacy threatens the supremacy of the totalitarian and theocratic leadership. (v. 2,17)
  • Acts 5:12-41 – Power and attraction of the gospel arouses jealousy. (v17)
  • Acts 6:7-15 – Success of ministry arouses competition.
  • Acts 7:54-8:4 – Stephen becomes the Christian Church’s first martyr; persecution breaks out.
  • Acts 12:1-4 – Herod persecutes apostles for political gain.
  • Acts 12:1-18 – While Peter is in prison, the church prays.
  • Acts 13:49-14:7 – Opposition to the gospel forces missionaries to flee.
  • Acts 16:16-34 – The gospel threatens trade, economic prosperity and the fortune-telling industry (v19); false accusations lead to missionaries being severely beaten.
  • Acts 17:1-15 – Missionary success arouses jealousy; missionaries forced to flee. (v5)
  • Acts 19:23-32 – The gospel threatens trade, economic prosperity and the idol industry; idol-makers incite riot that goes out of control.
  • Acts 21:27-36 – Enemies of the gospel incite hatred and violence; Paul beaten and arrested.

Prepare for persecution:

  • Understand it to be normal. (1 Peter 4:12; Philippians 1:29)
  • Know the teaching of the Word of God. (Philemon 3:10; Romans 6:3-5; John 8:31-32)
  • Abide in Christ. (John 15:4)
  • Submit daily to the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 5:18; 4:30)
  • Rest in the will of God. (Ephesians 5:17; Hebrews 4:1,9-11)

Conduct under persecution:

  • Matthew 5:44; 10:22; Acts 5:41: Romans 12:14; Philippians 1:28; Hebrews 10:34; 1 Peter 3:13-19

Results of persecution:

  • Matthew 5:10; Luke 6:22; 9:24; James 1:2; 1 Peter 4:14; Revelation 6:9; 7:13

Rewards for suffering persecution:

  • Glory in heaven. (2 Corinthians 4:17-18; 1 Peter 5:1,10,11)

  • Will reign with him. (2 Timothy 2:12a)
  • Spirit of glory rests upon. (1 Peter 4:14)
  • Glory is brought to God. (1 Peter 4:16)
  • Reason for joy. (1 Peter 4:13-14)

Place and power of prayer:

  • 2 Thessalonians 3:1-3 – Prayer is desired and required for persecuted believers.
  • Romans 15:30-33 – Our prayers help struggling believers.
  • 2 Corinthians 1:10-11 – God works as we pray.
  • 2 Corinthians 10:3-4; Ephesians 6:10-18 – Spiritual battle requires spiritual weapons.
  • James 5:16b-18 – The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.

Some possible forms that persecution may take:

  • By slander (evil report). (Psalm 31:13; Job 19:18; 55:12-14; Luke 6:22)
  • Shame. Open embarrassment, dishonor or disgrace. Manner in which our Lord was accused of being conceived (born out-of-wedlock); also, manner in which His nakedness was openly displayed on the cross. (Hebrews 13:13; 11:26)
  • Falsely accused. (Psalm 35:11; 27:12; Matthew 5:11; Luke 23:2,5,10; Mark 14:55-60; Acts 6:13; 16:19-23; 26:2,7)
  • Ensnare through deceit, trapping, tricks. (Daniel 6:4-5; Luke 11:54; Matthew 10:16-18)
  • Object of conspiracy. (2 Samuel 15:12; Genesis 37:18; 2 Corinthians 11:32; Acts 9:23)
  • Mocked, scorned, scoffed and sneered at. (Psalm 42:3, Job 12:4; Matthew 27:29,31,41; Acts 2:13; 17:18,32; Hebrews 11:36)
  • Betrayed, treated treacherously. (Matthew 24:10; Luke 21:16; Psalm 41:9)
  • Despised, to have contempt for, to loathe, to think nothing of, to consider without honour. (1 Corinthians 1:28; 4:10c)
  • Hated by family. (Matthew 10:21, 34-36; Micah 7:6; Luke 21:16)
  • Hated by men. (Luke 21:17; Matthew 10:22; Job 19:19)

Syria – Concerned for the safety and future of their children 4 out of 10 Christians leaving Damascus

MissionNewsNetworg.org via OpenDoorsMinistry reports:

Syria ― „The situation is very grim. There is deep sadness and much stress and anxiety.” That is the summary Pastor Edward from Damascus gave to Open Doors on the situation in the Syrian capital. (Photo credit on right www.religiontoday.com)

According to the pastor, about 40% of the members of his church have left the country since the conflict in Syria started over two years ago. Imagine: four of every ten members of your church leaving in such a short period. That means a major loss for every congregation. And that is the reality churches in Syria now face as this example from Damascus shows.

People who have the financial means, and especially those who have contacts abroad, are leaving the country. Pastor Edward knows that in his church, some members still are waiting for the opportunity to leave Syria, too. „They are still trying to find a place to go.” However, all the people that left didn’t leave the church services empty. „No, we see new people coming to church. Many of the families that we visit and help with a monthly food supply, for example, come to our services now.”

Although there is no fighting going on in the central area of Damascus, in several suburbs fighting is a daily reality. No one can escape from the distant sound of explosions and shooting. „It seems that there is no end in sight. Christians are like all other people: concerned for their safety and the future of their children.”

In a way, life goes on for many people in the capital. People who work in the public sector still go to work. „But their income is worth less and less as the Syrian pound lost 75% of its value, which caused huge inflation. After over two years of civil war, most people are suffering economically and are traumatized emotionally.”

The pastor also mentions „a brighter side” in the gloom. „Church people are closer to the Lord and to each other.”

Eritrea – persecution and death for non state approved Christian denominations

Photo credit gatewaynews.co.za see also this story from March of this year – Eritrea jails 125 Christians in campaign against ‘illegal’ worship

For us, this is reminiscent of Communist Romania, where the only recognized religion during the communist regime which ended in 1989, was the Orthodox Church. All others were persecuted, economically deprived, not allowed to attend universities and not considered for good, high paying jobs.

Open Doors USA is reporting the death of a 41 year old man who recently converted to Christianity, died in a Medefera prison after being held there since December. Curiously, of the Protestant denominations, Eritrea only approves of the Catholic Church and Lutherans. Here is the story from Mission Network News:

Eritrea, which ranks #10 on the Open Doors World Watch List of countries with the worst persecution of believers. Yosief is the 24th reported death connected to punishment for religious activities outside of the government-sanctioned Catholic Church, Orthodox Church, Lutheran Church, and Islam.

Sources told Open Doors that Yosief, 41, had been sick for a long time, but that the harsh treatment at a secret Medefera incarceration center aggravated the effects of the unknown disease.

However, because of the government’s secrecy surrounding prisoners and denied access to watchdog organizations, there may be many more deaths and burials that have not been reported.

Yosief was originally from Asmara. He went to Mendefera to teach at a primary school some time prior to his arrest. Six months after his arrival, Yosief came to faith in Christ. His devotion to Bible study and prayer caught the attention of representatives of the ruling Eritrean People’s Front for Democracy and Justice (EPRDF) at the school.

Authorities arrested him in December and took him to the secret incarceration center in Mendefera where he was kept incommunicado. Sources told Open Doors the center holds many other religious prisoners whose whereabouts were previously unknown to family members and churches.

„Christians should be hugely encouraged to see how God through His Holy Spirit enables His children even new–and isolated ones like Yosief–to remain firm in their devotion to Christ no matter the circumstances,” commented an Open Doors team member.

Please pray for other Christians incarcerated in Eritrean prisons. Pray for the Holy Spirit to give believers strength and peace.

Northern Nigeria under State of Emergency

Nigeria (ODM/MNN) ― Open Doors USA has issued an urgent appeal for prayer after receiving news that suspected Boko Haram terrorists attacked the predominantly Nigerian Christian village of Zangan in southern Kaduna around midnight on Monday.It was the latest in a string of attacks that prompted a State of Emergency.

Open Doors spokesman Jerry Dykstra says they’re still trying to determine the details of what happened, but so far, „Open Doors says it understands an ‘entire village’ has been destroyed: burnt down, many people are fleeing after the attack.”

The village chief’s residence was reportedly burnt to the ground, and the village chief’s whereabouts remains unknown after he fled Zangan. Churches and homes were among the buildings destroyed in the attack.

Goodluck JonathanDykstra says this attack came after an earlier threat and days of uncertainty. „The report that we got from Open Doors in Africa said that they had been threatened before by the Boko Haram. They were living in fear almost daily. In that area, many schools have been closed down because of that.”

„We do not have any more details at this stage, but we understand that this area saw a similar attack about four weeks ago. Open Doors urges prayer for the people of southern Kaduna state and Zangan village in particular.” Police say 19 people died in that earlier attack.

Open Doors has been active in Nigeria since 1997. Over the last few years, „The Boko Haram actually wants to take over the whole country and put into effect Sharia Law,” explains Dykstra. Their attacks–which are estimated to have cost 3,600 lives since 2009–have included suicide blasts as well as coordinated gun and bomb assaults on houses of worship, Christian centers, security forces, schools and other symbols of authority. All that means the Open Doors response teams have seen dramatic growth in the outreach they do.

With the Boko Haram targeting church leaders and Christian adults, that leaves an untold number of orphans and widows. Open Doors projects target schooling for the children, as well as socio-economic projects for widows of Christian leaders who have been killed. Dykstra adds, „We support the Christians there in emergency situations with trauma counseling. We do a lot of care for Muslim-Background Believers, distribution of Bibles, Sunday school training, assistance to Christians in Sharia-controlled States in the North.”

Nigeria is ranked No. 13 on the Open Doors 2013 World Watch List (www.worldwatchlist.us ) of the worst persecutors of Christians in the world.

It’s unlikely that this pattern will change much. Aside from the physical help, Dyskstra says Nigerian believers are asking for wisdom in their response. „I think we need to pray for Christians not to strike back. The Christian leaders are urging–especially the youth–not to retaliate. That would kind of just recycle this pattern of violence.”

Christians are being driven out of Iraq

Here is another country doing whatever it takes to achieve 100% Isalmic faith within its borders. Read, also, how Morocco is trying to achieve similar results here- Morocco considers death penalty for apostasy.

The story on Iraq is being reported from http://www.mnnonline.org:

iraqChrist followers in Iraq date back to the first century A.D., making it one of the oldest Christian communities in the world. But today, Christianity in Iraq is under serious threat. Similarly, the wetland marshes, once teeming with flora and fauna, were drained to desert over a decade ago.

What’s more, it seems this attitude is part of a growing trend. Open Doors minister-at-large Paul Estabrooks explains, „The Christians are being told, ‘We want a Muslim-only nation. We do not want any Christians here.’ This is similar to what is going on today in northern Sudan.”

As a result, Christians in Iraq continue to be targets of violent attacks. „When the Iraq war began, Muslim extremists in Baghdad targeted one whole community called Dara, where the Christians lived in Baghdad.” Estabrooks notes, „Today, just about every one of those Christian families has been driven out of the subdivision in which they lived.”

While the overthrow of Saddam Hussein in 2003 may have been a victory for coalition forces, ongoing changes in leadership have been a disaster for Iraqi Christians. Estabrooks says, „As each attack against Christians occurs in recent weeks and days, there are more and more concerns that Christians will continue the exodus.”

Reports from Open Doors field workers indicate anti-Christian sentiment is only growing. „From a city like Mosul, armed men shot a Christian right in front of his home. Another one had a bomb thrown in his yard.” In 2003, there were more than one million Christians in Iraq. A decade later, only a third of this number remain.

The saddest part of this story, says Estabrooks, is the loss of history. Christians have been part of the fabric of Iraqi society since the beginning. During the 7th century, Islam took over and the Christians were hard-pressed, but they survived. That’s what makes this modern day „religicide” a travesty. „Even though they were second class citizens at the time, they were able to survive through the challenges and the pressure of that era (7th century Islam). Now, even these denominations are saying, ‘If more and more Christians keep leaving or get killed, then there will be no Church left in this country.'”

However, there are some church leaders who are not content to sit quietly while the violence decimates their homes. Louis Raphael Sako, the newly-elected Chaldean Catholic patriarch of Iraq and Syria, urges Christians to stay. „We must stay. This is our history. This is our cultural heritage. When we leave, everything will leave with us.” As he reads the field reports, Estabrooks echoes that sentiment. „There’s a sense in which the Salt and Light Christians [bring] must remain there. This is the appeal Christians are making to us for our prayers on their behalf.”

Does intercessory prayer make a difference? It must, says Estabrooks. „It is the only recourse we really have other than giving awareness to the international community of this kind of ‘religious cleansing’ that seems to be going on.”

According to the Open Doors 2013 World Watch List materials, there are only an estimated 330,000 to 350,000 Christians left in Iraq. There were more than 1.2 million Christians in the early 1990s. Many of the believers have fled to Jordan and Lebanon, or to the northern Kurdish region of Iraq. Iraq is ranked No. 4 on the list of the worst persecutors around the globe.

Despite the doom and gloom of this story, it does include a bright note. Dreams and visions of Christ are commonly reported throughout the Middle East and North Africa as the rise of Islam continues. Even as the reports of „religicide” pour in, there are people who are accepting Christ as Savior. Mentoring these new Christians falls on the shoulders of the few church leaders who are left.

The Open Doors ministry in Iraq is coming alongside this remnant and providing trauma counseling, biblical training for church leaders and Muslim-Background Believers, distribution of Bibles and Christian literature, community development projects, and working with Internally Displaced Peoples (IDPs) in Kurdistan.

Remember the comparison we made at the beginning of this story? Recently, an Iraqi civil engineer came back to the wetlands and organized a careful breech of the dams that diverted the waters of the Tigris and Euphrates. Within months, the desert landscape was teeming with life, seeds sprouting from a dry land nearly abandoned to war.

So it is with the seeds of the Church in Iraq.

Open Doors USA releases its world ranking of persecution by country – North Korea still #1, Mali newcomer to list #7

WWL-Main-Download

Information and watch list from  the non denominational group http://www.OpenDoorsUSA.org.  Rankings released  January 8,2013

North Korea – For the eleventh year running, this is the most difficult place on earth to be a Christian. In a country of 24.5 million, there are just 400,000 Christians. North Korea is one of the remaining Communist states, and it is vehemently opposed to religion of any kind. Christians are classified as hostile and face arrest, detention, torture, even public execution. There is a system of labor camps including the renowned prison No. 15, which reportedly houses 6,000 Christians alone. But despite severe oppression, there is a growing underground church movement of an estimated 400,000 Christians. We have written on North Korea several times in the past year. At the bottom are some noteworthy articles you can read in order to become more familiar with the brutal hardship that is endured by the Christians of North Korea. You can also read about North Korea’s hidden gulag, below all of the links, and visit the website that published The Hidden Gulag Report.

African countries surge – Open Doors reports that persecution of Christians in Africa vastly increased in 2012. Mali is a newcomer on the list and holds the No. 7 position. Tanzania (No. 24), Kenya (No. 40), Uganda (47) and Niger (No. 50) also moved onto the World Watch List and Ethiopia is one of the strongest risers (from No. 38 to No. 15) on the list. In addition, the small African country of Eritrea made the Top 10 for the first time at No. 10. Libya climbed from No. 26 to No. 17.

Syria made the largest jump on the World Watch List. The country is No. 11 on the list, compared to No. 36 in 2012.

Christians are persecuted in at least 60 countries for their faith. They suffer interrogation, arrest and even death in some of the most dangerous and restrictive countries in the world. For 58 years Open Doors has supported and strengthened believers worldwide through Bible and Christian literature distribution, leadership training and assistance, Christian community development and prayer and presence ministry.

The Hidden Gulag

Second Edition

The Lives and Voices of
“Those Who are Sent to the Mountains”

David Hawk

Description: Based on extensive interviews with over 60 defectors and more than 40 satellite photos of North Korean political prisoner camps, the report calls for the dismantlement of the vast North Korean gulag system in which 150,000 to 200,000 are incarcerated.

From Page 158: In the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, crimes against humanity are committed against persons sent to the political penal labor colonies. Evidence shows that:

1. Perceived or suspected “wrong-doers” or “wrong-thinkers,” or in some instances, persons with“wrong-knowledge,”123 and/or their family from the DPRK State Security Agency,124 which refuses to acknowledge the deprivation of freedom and refuses to provide information on the fate or whereabouts of those persons with the intent of removing those persons from the “protection of law” for a prolonged period of time.

2. The abducted persons are subjected to deportation or forcible transfer from the area in which they were lawfully present without grounds permitted under international law.

3. The abducted and deported persons are deposited at distant, remote, penal labor colonies or encampments, where they are subjected to “imprisonment or severe deprivation of physi- cal liberty in violation of fundamental rules of international law.”129 These abductions, deporta- tions and the subsequent imprisonments all take place without any judicial process. There is no arrest, charge, trial, conviction or sentence, as provided in the DPRK Criminal Code and the DPRK Criminal Procedures Code.

4.The prolonged, indefinite detention of family members is a violation of Article 26 of the ICCPR, “…the law shall prohibit any discrimi- nation and guarantee to all persons equal and effective protection against discrimination on any ground such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.” The imprisonment of family members amounts to what the ICC Statute terms as “persecu- tion.” Most family members of suspected wrong-doers or wrong-thinkers are detained for the rest of their lives in sections of the prison camps termed “total control zones.”

5. Once cut off from any contact with the coun- try or world outside of the prison camp, including former family and friends, the imprisoned persons are subjected, usually for a lifetime, to arduous forced labor under extremely severe circumstances. This begins with the provision of below subsistence level food rations.

7. Prisoners are regularly subjected to beatings and sometimes more systematic torture for infractions of prison camp regulations and during interrogations.

8.On numerous occasions, prisoners compelled to observe executions (which are carried out publicly to demonstrate to other prisoners the severe consequences of escape attempts and/or non-compliance with camp regulations) …

9. Prison camp officials and guards are regularly able to exact sexual relations with female prison- ers under circumstances that have been judged to constitute rape or sexual violence …

One With Them

Published on Jul 31, 2012 by 

For those who share our faith but not our freedom.

Nearly 70% of the world’s population live in areas of severe religious restriction. Many of these people are Christians.

One With Them™ is an Open Doors initiative designed to bring awareness to the reality of Christian persecution to the Western Church. Through One With Them we seek to inspire Christians in the United States to stand as ONE with those who share our faith in Christ, but who don’t share our religious freedom.

When we read of the suffering which our brothers and sisters in Christ endure for the sake of His Name, our hearts are moved and we long to bring them before the throne of grace. But sometimes it is difficult to know exactly how to pray, especially if we have never experienced such injustice or persecution ourselves. The Bible tells us that the Church will be persecuted. So if the Lord will continue to allow persecution, what exactly should we ask Him for when we pray about these situations? We hope that the ten points below will be helpful suggestions, under the guidance and prompting of the Holy Spirit.

  1. God that He is all-knowing that in Christ He himself experienced shame, pain and agonising death, as well as the glorious resurrection. Thank Him for His promise: “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Josh 1:5).
  2. Pray that all governments will work for justice and righteousness. While Jesus says that in this world we will have trouble, (John 16.33) He does not say that it will always be present in every place.
  3. Pray that leaders of liberal democracies will use their influence to find ways to reduce, if not end, persecution in countries where it occurs. Just as Paul appealed to Caesar to seek justice (Acts 25), so Christians can appeal to secular governments.
  4. Pray for the growth of the Church where persecution flourishes, remembering that “the blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church.”
  5. Pray for strength and courage for those undergoing persecution, and for peace that only God can bring. Thank Him that His grace is sufficient for their needs (2 Cor 12:9). Pray that their faith will not fail, but that their suffering will draw them closer to Him and increase their faith.
  6. Pray that the Holy Spirit will enable persecuted Christians to forgive and love their persecutors (Matt 5:44) and that their Christ-like reactions will have an impact on their persecutors.
  7. Pray that the Lord will be at work in the hearts of those who currently persecute our sisters and brothers to bring them to a saving knowledge of Himself, as He did with Saul of Tarsus (Acts 9).
  8. Thank the Lord for the privilege of entering into the sufferings of our sisters and brothers, remembering that “if one part [of the body] suffers, every part suffers with it” (1 Cor 12:26).
  9. Pray that Christians who are experiencing persecution will not lose the ability to accept or trust genuine approaches from those who have formerly persecuted them, as when the believers in Jerusalem had to learn to accept the reality of Saul’s conversion (Acts 9). Pray that the Lord will give discernment, and relief from unnecessary fears.
  10. Pray for yourself and for persecuted Christians to be spiritually ready for whatever tomorrow brings, be that persecution, respite from suffering or Christ’s return (Matt 24.42).

Koreea de Nord – crestinul prins in posesia unei Biblii e condamnat la inchisoare cu intreaga familie si urmatoarele 3 generatii

70.000 de creştini, în lagărele de exterminare

din Coreea de Nord

www.semneletimpului.ro raporteaza:

Venirea la putere a lui Kim Jong Un, după o perioadă în care tatăl său (Kim Jong Il) a condus ţara cu mână de fier, a însemnat o libertate ceva mai mare pentru nord-coreeni. Din păcate, pentru creştini persecuţiile au rămas la fel de aspre şi de frecvente.

persecutiile_in_coreea_de_nord_continua (Foto: persecutionblog.com)În condiţiile în care lipsa alimentelor face ca majoritatea populaţiei să mănânce iarbă şi diferite coji găsite pe câmp, informarea oficialităţilor cu privire la existenţa sau activitatea unui creştin îţi poate asigura o masă bogată. Mărturie sunt cei 70.000 de creştini din Coreea de Nord, care sunt închişi şi persecutaţi în lagărele de concentrare.

Persecuţia este atât de strictă încât un creştin, familia lui şi încă trei generaţii sunt condamnate la închisoare pe viaţă doar pentru posesia unei Biblii!

În Coreea de Nord, creştinii sunt consideraţi trădători pentru că nu se închină conducătorului. Totodată, ei sunt consideraţi o ameninţare la siguranţa naţională şi sunt trataţi în consecinţă (bătuţi, torturaţi, iar cei care supravieţuiesc rămân condamnaţi la  închisoare pe viaţă).

Coreea de Nord este pe locul 1 în lume în ceea ce priveşte persecutarea creştinilor, într-un clasament realizat de organizaţia non profit Open Doors.
