90,000 Christians Killed a Year?

Christian martyrdom may be the world’s most underreported story. But if a study conducted by the Center for the Study of Global Christianity is true, we are in the midst of a terrible international pogrom against Christians,  with 90,000 reportedly killed a year because of their faith.

The Center for the Study of Global Christianity has done extensive research on Christian martyrdom, both historical and contemporary. We estimate that between 2005 and 2015 there were 900,000 Christian martyrs worldwide—an average of 90,000 per year.

That’s a stunning number that doesn’t include the Christians imprisoned or otherwise persecuted.

This should be the subject of headlines and calls to action. Instead, well, you know.

    Yes, I have been posting this fact for months, and I get stony silence, even from Christians. Why the blind eye to this??

      Well, one is readership. I don’t have many readers anymore. The other is that the church has generally no response except to pray for the persecuted. We’ve relied on governments to put pressure on other governments to tighten laws or policing. I don’t watch anymore but CBN,Christian Broadcasting Network used to feature persecution stories in India and the Mid East.
