The 50 Most Dangerous Countries to Be a Christian

The 50 Most Dangerous Countries to Be a Christian

Open Doors USA, which has worked for more than 60 years to help persecuted believers, has released the “World Watch List” for 2018. In it, the organization lists the 50 countries in which it is most dangerous to be a follower of Jesus Christ. Christians in these countries face punishments ranging from discrimination and arrests, to torture and execution.

Let’s join in praying for our fellow believers to be safe, and to hold fast to their faith.
