While you open up your local newspaper, you read many articles about life in your community, country, and this world. Yet no single newspaper can definitely comprise all of the news in this world. Unfortunately, many news sources stray away from reports of religious persecution for some reason or another. There are people in this world who face terrible oppression because of what they believe. This website, www.persecution.com, provides information on those who are persecuted for their belief in the Christian faith.
The website does far more than present news that is overlooked by the world newspapers, it actually encourages advocacy for these people. It offers contact information of government officials for people to write or e-mail on behalf of the prisoners and victims. Voice of the Martyrs, the organization is an international organization dedicated to spreading these stories for people to learn about and get involved. Donations can be made for the cause and one can buy several books or even a few trinkets that will provide for those who are oppressed. The persecuted church, which refers to those who are suffering due to this oppression, is standing strong, even growing, yet many in the world don't know about it. This website is determined to get the word out of this persecution.
The name of this organization simply states its mission. A martyr is one who life was lost for the sake of his or her beliefs. The Voice of the Martyrs seeks to make known the story of those who face persecution, even to death, for the sake of their belief in Christ. www.persecution.com is one of their online vessels to fulfill this purpose.
While very few news sources actually report these incidents, this website stands as a beacon to make these stories known to the world.
