New Research Shows One In Four Christians Face Persecution Today


About a quarter of the world’s Christians face persecution today, according to new research from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.

Research showed that 500 million believers live in countries hostile to their faith.

Professor Todd Johnson said Christians are persecuted in 46 countries, with more than half of those countries are Muslim.

Johnson also said the persecutors are commonly neighbors or groups in society rather than governments.

  1. In the West, we spend so much energy avoiding discomfort and the church falters. Yet, at the same time 1 in 4 face persecution and the church flourishes. It is time to get back to the mission of God, not physical comfort, but spiritual restoration. Thank you for sharing!
