Imagine being imprisoned, beaten, or even worse, killed, if a Bible is found in your home. Imagine worshipping in a church service that you know could be bombed at any moment. Imagine being denied education or a job and struggling to survive. All because you believe in Jesus.
Today 1 out of every 8 Christians live in a country where they suffer some form of persecution. Today is Day of the Christian Martyr. According to church tradition, June 29th marks the martyrdom of the Apostle Paul. Christians around the world will take time today and throughout this weekend to honor the legacy of those who have sacrificed their lives for the advancement of the gospel. Our good friend Todd Nettleton from The Voice of the Martyrs joins the conversation. https://www.persecution.com/martyr/
