World News from a Christian Worldview

with Biblical Commentary

A Christian persecution watchdog has warned of a new form of warfare being adopted by Islamic extremists to victimize followers of Jesus — social media.

Open Doors USA says that terror cells across the Middle East are harnessing the power of social media platforms to implicate Christians in blasphemy cases by creating fraudulent posts.

One such incident involved a 26-year-old man named Fady Youssef Today, a Christian living in Egypt. Today explained that someone had hacked into his Facebook account and posted a blasphemous message. Later, after realizing what had happened, he posted a video to the platform explaining to his followers that it was not him who produced the content.

But it wasn’t enough, as the mob had already formed, with roughly 100 people marching on Today’s family home in Ashnin El-Nasara, a village in Minya south of Cairo. The angry crowd destroyed everything in the home, as Fady’s parents took refuge at a relative’s place.

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
