The Threat of Danger

A few days ago, I saw a post on Twitter that talked about journalists being one of the most dangerous professions in the world. This was declared so by the United Nations because over 500 journalists have been killed in the past 10 years. Since 2000, roughly 160,000 Christians have been martyred every year. Since 1900, nearly two-thirds of Christian martyrdom has occurred...45 million Christian martyrs. (World Christian Trends AD 33-AD 2200)

While some of these martyr statistics can be estimates in certain cases, it is safe to say that Christian martyrdom is one of gravest human rights abuses in the world.

This is not meant to minimize what journalists risk in reporting the news in dangerous places all around the world. There have been some horror stories, especially with what happens to women. I think it's courageous what some of these journalists will do to report the truth.

Let's just not forget that a number of Christians face the threat of danger every day of their life.
