The persecution of Christians throughout the world does not get as much press attention as it should despite the work of significant groups attempting to spread the word.
My fellow believers, let us beware that we do not become complacent and neglect our roles as Christ’s followers.
In this series of columns for iAt, I will endeavor to tell the story of the United States and Middle Eastern Christians, from the 1950s until today. But first, I want to set the stage by challenging how we think about persecution. How do we make mental sense of horror movie scenes like the bloodbath at St. Mark’s?
