For many people around the world, religious freedom is an alien concept. No “First Amendment” protects them. No tradition of religious liberty permits them to worship according to their own consciences. If they go to a church that isn’t the “accepted” church, they risk ostracism, assault, torture, jail … even death.

Rebecca Hagelin's column looks at some of the efforts being made to expose the persecution of Christians around the world and to intercede for the victims. An excellent exhortation and good information.
