CHRISTIANS are being martyred for their faith every five minutes by barbaric Islamic groups. Believers are often singled out, tortured and faced with the brutal choice of converting to Islam or being slaughtered.
Hatred of the non-believer is in the Quran.
‘When you meet the disbelievers, strike them in the neck, and once they are defeated, bind any captives firmly…. (47:4)
Christians ‘martyred for beliefs every FIVE MINUTES by Islamic State and other terrorists’
CHRISTIANS are being martyred for their faith every five minutes by barbaric Islamic State militants and other terror groups, a shocking new report has claimed.

Believers are often singled out, tortured and faced with the brutal choice of converting to Islam or being slaughtered, according to Christian Freedom International.
Those who refuse to comply have reportedly had their limbs cut off or have been crucified.
Research by CFI found that more than 200 million followers are facing persecution in 105 countries making Christianity the most at-risk faith group in the world.
More Christians have been martyred in the 20th and 21st centuries than during the previous 19 combined, the organisation has claimed.
The human rights group’s president Jim Jacobson said: “Islamic State Militants in Iraq are using Christian churches as torture chambers where they force Christians to either convert to Islam or die.
“Islamic State militants are also stripping the former places of Christian worship of ancient relics which in turn are smuggled to Western collectors to help fund their terrorist activities.”
In August the terrorist group raided a Syrian church and abducted more than 230 Christians.
Days later they returned and bulldozed the 1,600-year-old monastery.
A video showed the twisted terror group razing the ancient Mar Elian church to the ground.
They also dug up and desecrated the bones of Saint Elian, who the monastery was named after.
Thousands of Christians have been displaced by years of fighting in the conflict zone.
The strategic city of Qaryatain has seen its pre-war Christian population of 2,000 drop to just 300 in recent months, according to one Christian force.
