«165.000 followers of Jesus were killed in 2009»

80 per cent of followers of Jesus who are persecuted and killed live in Muslim nations.

This is a statement of Majed El Shafie, an Egyptian Muslim convert to Christianity and founder of the One Free World International advocacy group. He is heading a group of Christian leaders, human rights activists and Canadian parliamentarians to Israel this week to raise awareness about the plight of Christians living in Muslim countries.

The group reports that there are hundreds of millions of Christians in the world today who are persecuted for their faith, 80 per cent of whom live in Muslim countries. El Shafie also noted that in 2009, 165,000 Christians were killed because of their faith.

«Hamas digs up the bodies of Christians from Christian burial sites in the Gaza Strip claiming that they pollute the earth», he claimed in adv ance of a lecture Monday evening at the van Leer Institute in Jerusalem.

El Shafie has personal experience of Muslim persecution of Christians. Born in Cairo into a wealthy family of distinguished lawyers and judges, he converted to Evangelical Christianity and wrote a book about his experiences, as well as number of Gospel pamphlets. As a result of his publishing activities, he was arrested, imprisoned, tortured and condemned to death.

He managed to escape from an Egyptian prison and hid out in the Sinai with Bedouin before escaping to Israel on a jet ski rented in the Red Sea resort of Taba. Imprisoned for over a year in Beersheva, he learned Hebrew and was eventually released into the custody of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, which arranged asylum for him in Canada. He then founded «One World» in 2004 and has been active in defending individuals being persecuted and jailed in Muslim countries for their faith.

While in Jerusalem, the OFWI delegation will meet with Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Danny Ayalon and Mayor of Jerusalem Nir Barkat to try enlist Israel’s help in the effort to confront Muslim persecution of Christians.

My comment:

Aston and I had a debate on this site this week about the persecuted church being the only true Church on Earth, and that tens of thousand of killed Jesus-followers is a part of the promised end time revival. But hardly anyone cares, in the lukewarm, «rich», naked and pitiful Westernized Church.

It the global media, including Christian-TV was not controlled by Satan, there would be coverage around the clock, of this massive genocide taking place.

If you do not realize that the Anti-Messiah have taken over the media, its time to take a look outside your TV-screen before its to late.

Most of the deception that creeps into Evangelical Churches World wide, is Americanized prosperity related messages. Talk about money, health and wealth. The Messiah demanded that his followers had to be willing to be crucified in regards to this World. 165.000 people in the Muslim world, China and India was willing to be just that. A living sacrifice for Him, telling the truth at any cost.

  1. I agree with you that Satan is controlling the media. Christians need wisdom and a whole lot of discernment. The media news and TV programs need to be filtured witch does not give much to watch or listen to.

    1. Dear Dick

      Thanks for this comment. We have the Bible. Jesus said we shall see sign of the times, and understand. We live in exciting times. We are suppose to rejoice in the midst of tribulations. To be honest. This is the most difficult part of following Jesus. Many shall give up and become a friends of this World.

  2. I hate this world. And I Cant stand Western Christianity! It is WORSE then Islam because it really makes people think they are doing the right thing while still allowing people to straddle the fence and be autonomous! They can have their cake and eat it too in American Christianity!!

    God, It is my prayer that I as well as others can start to follow you with zeal and put our lukewarm comforts aside for the truth!
