‘Cradle of Christianity Is Wiped Off the Map,’ Evangelicals Warn
“And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me” Matthew 25:40
A faith-based global ministry has initiated a “Fostering Families” program in which it’s calling on over 1,000 churches in America to take in persecuted refugees from the ongoing crisis. Rev. Kevin Jessip, president of Global Strategic Alliance, said Christians are being wiped out from the Middle East, while at the same time being denied visas in the United States, and it’s an urgent time for the rest of the Christian body to wake up and help.
“It’s inappropriate for the Untied States of America to discriminate against a minority religion who is in dire need of asylum. These are proven cases at the UNHCR that we’ve seen of people who have been denied, and are in jeopardy of losing their lives,” Jessip told The Christian Post in a phone interview on Thursday.
“Not only have they ran and lost everything, but now, in many cases, we are seeing people facing another impending threat, and that is starvation,” he said, noting that most of the Christian refugees don’t even have basic resources to provide food for themselves.
