Serious Concerns for Afghani Christians Under Taliban Rule

Afghanistan’s Christians are already paying the price for their faith, according to the Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom.

Director Nina Shea says she’s not exaggerating by saying that the Taliban are murdering Christians.

News service Christian Today, reports the Washington-based think tank is trying to rescue a Christian man whose brother and father had been killed.

Ms Shea told Blaze TV that it was incredibly dangerous for Christians in Afghanistan, because most were converts from Islam and connected to the West through their religion.

She says when the Taliban sees them, they’re considered both the enemy and apostate, which carries the death penalty.

Prayer is requested for believers and their families that the Lord would strengthen them in their faith and give courage in the face of adversity.
