Christian charity Help The Persecuted recently discovered that a young man who had been living in one of their Safe Houses in the Middle East received a bullet in the post with a note saying:
‘If you do not revert back from Christianity, you will be destined to death.’
The same day, the father of a friend who the young man has been discipling received two bullets in the post with this letter:
‘This letter is a warning. We have received confirmed information about the behavior of your ignorant son and his views that are against Islam. We are aware of his connections with a group of infidels. He has been dealing with Americans and we are going to have to punish him. May God help us to execute him.’
“It seems unbelievable to us, but this is what many of our brothers and sisters in Christ face in the Muslim world. The pressure and persecution are intense,” explains Joshua Youssef, President and CEO of Help The Persecuted, a ministry that goes to great lengths to Rescue, Restore, and Rebuild the lives of persecuted Christians in countries hostile to the Gospel.
