What Mideast Unrest Means for Christianity's Future

Ad Feedback

As unrest continues to spread throughout the Middle East, Islamic terror groups like the Muslim Brotherhood are taking advantage of the situation to further their cause.

The developments have caused concerned among the region's Christians, who already face severe persecution at the hand of Muslims. 

However, some like Ramez Attalah, director of the Bible Society in Egypt, suggest the new reality could lead to a stronger church.  

"I personally believe that if Christians in Egypt are under duress in more difficult situations, their faith will flourish and it will be better for the gospel," he told CBN News.

"If we get the freedom we're yearning for, the gospel as a message and a lifestyle will weaken," he added.
