With groups like ISIS this doesn’t come as a surprise that Christians are the most persecuted group of people in 2016. Surprisingly, 70% of those came from Tribal Villages in Africa. The number of martyred Christians is astounding!
From The Blaze:
In all of 2016, nearly 90,000 Christians were martyred around the world, according to a new study by an Italian research group.
According to the Center for Studies on New Religions, which plans to release its full report next month, a Christian was martyred about once every six minutes in 2016, making them the most persecuted religious group in the world.
Massimo Introvigne, director of CENSUR, told Vatican Radio last week that approximately 70 percent of the martyred Christians were from “tribal villages” in Africa because Christians often refuse to take up arms during conflicts.
The other 30 percent, according to the study, were Christians who fell victim to terrorism or governmental persecution.
Here in America we’re blessed to be able to enjoy the freedom of practicing what we believe in. In other Countries like China and India, there are “underground Churches” because they can’t legally practice Christianity.
