Christian Persecution in TURKEY





TURKEY
Young Muslims Murder Three Christians – Compass Direct News

On April 18, five Muslims entered a Christian publishing company and killed three believers in the Southeastern province of Malatya. Two of the victims were Turkish converts from Islam and the third man was a German citizen. It is reported that four of the five attackers admitted that the killings were motivated by both "nationalist and religious feelings." Pray for comfort for the families of the deceased. Pray the testimony of their loved ones will lead others into the knowledge of Jesus Christ. Ask God to give Christians in Turkey perseverance to serve Him in the midst of immense challenges.

Matthew 5:3-4
3"Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.

  • That is one disturbing picture. I am starting to change my perspective on the Muslim religion. I don't know...they seem to kill everyone. Christians, Jews, other Muslims. Is it poverty, idealism? What is it that turns them into killers. Honestly they can't think this is OK with God. It's soooo evil.
