One summer morning in Pakistan, a Christian woman named Asia Bibi took a break from her fieldwork to drink a cup of cold water from a well. Since she was a Christian, the Muslim women there saw her actions as contaminating the water. Angered, the women ...

P.S. This webpage includes a form we can fill out to request that Asia Bibi be released. http://www.callformercy.com/ This was done by the Voice of the Martyrs.

The USA is mentioned in the article. Has President Obama made any statements to the Pakistinian government on Asia Bibi's behalf? ITA with James, Ben, and E. O. Cummings.

James, Bill, you both make valid points and I agree with the both of you. Partaking in the sufferings of Christ. What happened to this Christian Woman is a prime example of that. The day is coming when all Christians will be persecuted for Christ, and I pray Christians are as bold in defending their faith.

I have emailed my US Representative and both of my state's US Senators. I have been praying for Mrs. Bibi, and know that that along with contacting those who have power in our nation is really the least I could do. May God grant grace to our persecuted brothers and sisters.

When you understand the origins of Islam and its vile prophet Mohammed, you will understand how the devil deceives and manifests an ingrained hatred for Christ and His followers and seeks to destroy any aspect of Christ's kingdom whenever the opportunity to do so with impunity arises. Pray for the deliverance of this sister in Christ and the defeat of Christ's enemies through conviction of sin, repentance and faith in Jesus and the creation of a new heart to love Him and others.

Why am I concerned about the global persecution of minority Christians? Besides the moral and human rights reasons, Jesus states that he will judge the nations based on how they treated the "least of these" when he returns. In Matt 10:40-42, he makes it clear that the least of these "micron" refers to his disciples. In another words, those who persecute Jesus' disciples are persecuting Jesus. Most likely, this is also the referent in Matt 25. As such, living Christians should speak out on behalf of the Body of Christ and loudly advocate for them as we cry for justice in conjunction with the martyrs under the altar of God (cf. Rev 6:9-11).

I have many Christian friends who really care about gender equality, homosexual rights, immigration reform, and the plight of the American poor. Yet, they do not care about the persecution of global Christians. At a meeting of the Association of Theological Schools in Pittsburgh, I mentioned this concern last year. Several professors from mainline seminaries challenged the suggestion and argued that Christian persecution does not happen and that Evangelicals have invented it for self-serving political reasons. Chalk it up to compassion fatigue or callousness. Still, in addition to prayer and solidarity, Evangelicals need to find a way to grow consciousness and build advocacy.
