GFA Urges Prayer as Hindu Extremists Intensify Persecution

Crosswalk.com - GFA Urges Prayer as Hindu Extremists Intensify Persecution: "Earlier this month, the government of Rajasthan became the sixth state in India to enact an anti-conversion law. In other states with such legislation, Christians have been targeted for attacks by Hindu extremists.

Nevertheless, Yohannan notes, Christians in India are standing strong, and the increased persecution has only increased the effectiveness of the church's witness across the country. 'We have more people coming to Christ now,' he says, 'especially in places where the worst persecution is taking place.'

How this is to be explained, GFA's president confesses, is a mystery. 'I don't understand it,' he says, 'but Jesus said He will build his church. We are suffering for it, but God is faithfully doing His work.'

As the persecution against followers of Christ intensifies in India, Yohannan urges prayer. He asks believers in the United States and elsewhere in the free world to pray for Christians facing violence and intimidation from Hindu extremists in India and for believers facing persecution throughout the world."
