WASHINGTON — Some say that Christendom is facing more persecution right now than at any other time in modern history.
More than 200 million Christians in some 50 nations are facing high, very high or even extreme persecution. Just about every month more than 300 are killed for their faith.
Often believers facing such danger and living under such threat feel isolated and alone. That’s why evangelist Franklin Graham and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association called for the World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians this week in Washington, D.C.’s Mayflower Hotel.
