Sometimes we think that persecution of Christians is something that only happened at the beginning of the church. The fact is that the period in which we now live has the most Christian persecution in history. Many Christians march to martyrdom today, and it is more than you may think.
Christian persecution has increased 20% in just the last two years. Worldwide 260 million Christians face persecution for their faith. 260 million! Yet this huge number of people are widely ignored by popular media outlets.
