Tunisian Christians Continue In The Faith Of Jesus Amid Death Threats, ‘Do You Know That It Is Not Forbidden [In Islam] To Kill You?’

BosNewsLife Africa Service – “TUNIS, TUNISIA (BosNewsLife)– Some 1,500 devoted Tunisian Christian, most of them former Muslims, worship in church buildings or in house churches despite death threats and growing influence of Islamic extremists, a well-informed advocacy and aid group told BosNewsLife Monday, September 17.

Open Doors, which supports ‘persecuted Christians’ worldwide, mentioned a man identified only as Steve who was allegedly threatened by Islamists. ‘They said to me: ‘Do you know that it is not forbidden to kill you?’ But I didn’t really feel afraid,’ Steve was quoted as saying.

‘I could answer them: ‘Yes I know you can do that [you can kill me]’. They responded that I was crazy saying that. I said to them: ‘Yes, I am crazy for Jesus’.’

The Islamists reportedly left and didn’t come back, but pressure was expected to increase on Christians like Steve amid mounting protests across the region against an anti-Islam film, posted in part on the YouTube website…

Threatened Christian Steve apparently became a believer some five years ago through the Internet, which is increasingly used in North Africa and the Middle East by both Christians and political activists to communicate and avoid detection.

‘I found a site about the Bible and got interested,’ Steve explained in remarks given to BosNewsLife. ‘I got in contact with other Christians and I am going to a house church,’ he added.

He isn’t alone. Tahira, a Tunisian student, is openly expressing her Christian faith, even on the social networking website Facebook, Open Doors said. ‘Her sister and mother also became Christians. She still lives with her family,’ Open Doors told BosNewsLife.

Tahira’s family name was not revealed, apparently amid security concerns.” Read more.

    As africans and indeed the world become aware that an estimated 130 million africans have died as Islamic slaves and this does not include the number killied in the process of catpuring the africans..

    when we learn that african men were often fully castrated so that they could not have sex with female slaves they were made to guard and to keep them calm..

    when we learn that there are millions of africans today that remain slaves in islam, whether they are muslim or not

    search ‘africa modern slave islam’

    and here is Simon Deng, a man who escaped slavery and now speaks out with honour and grace to stop the madness

    when muslims realise that every muslim conquest has been by the sword and they begin to hear the screams of their ancestor’s for justice and rejection of Islam..

    Africans are discovering the truth and saying no to salvery and yes i want to be free .. join us all together in this new world and leave islam for the rubbish bin of history
