An international interfaith conference has revealed that 105,000 Christians are being killed every year simply because of their faith.
The shocking figures revealed at the “International Conference on Inter-religious dialogue between Christians, Jews and Muslims,” held in Hungary, show that a Christian is killed every five minutes somewhere in the world because of their faith.
Massimo Introvigne, representative of the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) on Combating Intolerance and Discrimination against Christians, added that these figures did not include the victims of civil wars, or wars between nations, but only the people put to death because they are Christians.
According to the “Catholic Culture” publication, Introvigne said, “If these figures are not cried out to the world, if this massacre is not stopped, if it is not recognized that the persecution against Christians is the first worldwide emergency with regard to religious discrimination and violence, dialogue between religions will only produce wonderful symposia but no concrete results.”
Metropolitan Hilarion, who is the foreign minister of the Russian Orthodox Church, highlighted to the delegates that of the Christians being persecuted every year “at least one million” were children.

I read an article recently on how murder, sexual assaults, robberies were on the rise, and how society will soon completely fall.
It is in line with what Christ said would happen in the “end days” as a sign of the times.
Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold,
We all must be prepared to meet our Savior at any moment. As a believer in Jesus, depending on where you live, persecution is happening right now. Torture, murder all because we have loved our God, and have chosen to follow him. Persecution will soon come to where you live. Little time is left on this earth.
But take heart! Jesus has told us beforehand that our reward is great in Heaven.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
The kingdom of heaven is near!
