    Christians, how aware are you that there are Christians being persecuted in other countries?

    You can look it up here at: http://www.persecution.com/
    How does this effect your view of what the American Church church is teaching about God wanting you to be happy and that suffering is a result of your sin?

    It is said in the bible that Christians will suffer persecution.  And the reason for that is because Satan and his demons are at work.  Satan is the king of this world for now, and he is good at what he does--deceiving people.  God does want you to be happy, and He promises you total happiness in the next world, but not this one.  There is a war going on between good and evil, and we are caught in the crosshairs because we were made in God's image and Satan hates us for that.  He knows he is destined for hell and is trying to take as many of us with him as he can.  I admit I did not look at the link you provided, but I can tell you that the world is rampant with evil, and that the walk with Christ is a hard one.  I am very aware that Christians are being persecuted in other countries because those other countries do not have freedom of religion.  Islam is NOT a religion of peace as many would like to believe.  Christians are being beheaded those countries, I think, the most.  There are plenty of articles and news on this topic if you look on the internet.

      Yes, I receive the Voice of Martyrs news letters and I have also read Tortured for Christ. I forget the author, but he is the one who founded VOM.

      Kris, It's tough being a minority in any country whether it's race or religion. History is filled with people who have been tortured for a variety of reasons. Our forefathers had the sense to include freedom of religion as a law in the U.S.

    One of the reasons so many people want to come to America is because we have "freedom of religion" and "separation of church and state." It's a "blessing" to be born in the U.S.!
    There are many atrocities going on around the world including various religious persecution and racial/tribal genocides.
    Having said that no one is responsible for how another person lives their life or what country they were born in.
    As my mother often told us: "Life is not fair."
    Should you feel guilty for having a bed to sleep in while others are forced to sleep outside on the ground? Should you feel bad for being able to own land when people in Communist countries are not allowed to? Or feel bad that girls and women can go to school?
    Our Declaration of Independence of states:
    "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
    Not every country subscribes to our doctrine and even in times of our history we've had various groups who were oppressed and shed blood in their efforts to strive for equality. It came at a cost!
    It should come as no surprise that the richest and most powerful country in the world would focus on the "blessings" derived from Christianity. The bible is the same pretty much wherever you go.
