“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

21 Coptic Christians beheaded by ISIS
on a Mediterranean beach 15 February 2015
Our Christian brothers and sisters in various parts of the world are suffering persecution. Depending on where you live, being a follower of Jesus Christ is life-threatening. We are seeing unfold before us news of people who would rather die than renounce their faith in Jesus Christ. 

Western Christians must prayerfully stand with the persecuted church. We must pressure our governments to lobby countries where Christians are persecuted to stop and let them live peacefully. 

Canada and America must open doors of immigration and asylum to persecuted Christians whose lives are in immediate peril. Areas of most severe persecution must be fast tracked for asylum/immigration acceptance. Christian Family reunification efforts increased. Local churches must sponsor families.

According the organization Open Doors USA, the top ten countries of Christian persecution are, in descending order: North Korea, Somalia, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Sudan, Iran, Pakistan, Eritrea and Nigeria. [1]

As ISIS and militant Muslims continue to kill Christians, even as I write these words, we must comfort their families and show our support. 

I have included below a television interview with the brother of two Christian martyrs executed by ISIS.
