What’s on the video of praying for 229 Christian missionaries?
The man who actually shares this post is unknown but he says something like this on the video.
Really pray. Pray for the believers there. There’s so much that is going on. It’s so much that is happening. I’ve we’ve lost all contact as of about 1 o’clock this morning due to the fact that if the Taliban finds any western number or contacts in their phone. They will kill them on site. It is what the Taliban has done before.
It is what they’re Modus Aparanda is whenever they find uh any believers, all believers in the country will be killed by the Taliban. They are not looking for converts at this point. They’re looking for the Extermination of Christians and despite what. I just watched the umm uh one of the Taliban leaders in uh just give an uh a Talk on the BBC and I’m telling you, these people
are full of lies.
They have no plan for good for the country of Afghanistan. They only have harm and Destruction in their path and uh they will implement, They say that they are only uh Implementing uh Basic head coverings for women.
It is a lie. Uh, they will total institute uh total coverage of all of the women’s bodies and for it not to be seen and eliminate women education throughout the country. Uh this is an evil demonic regime and they are planning on exterminating the second-fastest-growing church in the planet.
Pray for the believers and the 229 Christian missionaries
Um, this is a time where I’ve had messages uh all night long from all over. People asking and uh pleading for uh prayer, pleading for imperfection from the church here in the west to be praying for him to be holding them up and to pray that the Taliban will fall and that they will not succeed in their plan to eliminate again the second-fastest-growing church in the world.
Uh please ask your churches. Every prayer you know, share my post that we put on. I’m pleading with you yo uh pray and we saw it!!
What’s the situation in Afghanistan?
Christians are not allowed to promote their faith in Afghanistan, according to Emal Haidary, an AFP reporter in Kabul.
“Christian missionary work is banned in Afghanistan because the Islamic Sharia is the foundation of all laws here, and Sharia forbids Christian missionary work and apostasy (renouncing the Muslim faith),” Haidary added.
The picture was probably taken in Iraq, not Afghanistan
Regarding a photo of a blindfolded man ready to be executed that was extensively posted on social media, Haidary claimed that the clothing of another man in the backdrop, seen in white, did not appear to be Afghan.
“Arabs dress in long white robes, whereas Afghans do not. ISIS (Islamic State) fighters in Afghanistan are dressed differently, according to Haidary. “They mainly wear shalwar kamiz,” he stated, referring to traditional South Asian clothing worn by men.
