News: CCU Condemns Sri Lanka Attack

, Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world. In recent years Christianity has all but been driven out of the Middle East, the place of its birth. According to Open Doors USA, on average 105 churches or Christian buildings are burned every month. That is more than three a day. In addition, an average of 345 Christians are killed for faith-related reasons every month. In recent months, vandals and arsonists have targeted French churches in a wave of attacks. There have been bombing or burnings of churches in the Philippines, India, and the United States, not to mention the crushing of the church in China, North Korea, and elsewhere.

As we stated after the attack on Muslims in New Zealand, CCU stands against all forms of sectarian violence. We stand for the rights of all people to practice their faith freely. We affirm the importance of people of different faiths living together peacefully.

We also believe it is the responsibility of people of faith everywhere to speak out and stand up for each other's rights to freely practice their religion and live in tranquility. The open, free, and peaceful expression of one's faith is the bedrock on which Western Civilization is founded. To violently attack the adherents of one religion is to attack the adherents of all religions.

一道本不卡免费高清We place our hope firmly in the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ. While we decry such violence, we stand in the gospel hope that was preached around the world during Holy Week and Easter.
