One-third of the countries in the world are areas of religious persecution. 75% of the world population live in countries where there is religious restrictions. 80% of those living in persecution claim to be Christians.
10Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
