Open Doors: Persecution and Christianity in the 21st Century
February 5, 2015 12:00 ET

Persecution is real in the 21st century.  For nearly 60 years, Open Doors has worked in the world's most oppressive countries, empowering Christians who are persecuted for their beliefs. Open Doors equips persecuted Christians in more than 60 countries by providing Bibles, training, programs to help women and children who have been marginalized because of their beliefs and status in society, and helping to restore communities that have been destroyed because of faith. Join FRC and Dr. David Curry as he discusses the recent World Watch List which shines a light on Christian persecution including the top 50 worst offenders around the globe.  As we pause as a nation to pray this week may we not forget to lift up those who’s faith in Jesus may cost them everything.
