Story number 1 for 12 Jan 2000
Posted: 12 January, 2000
We begin today's newscast in Saudi Arabia where 15 Christians were arrested for worshiping Christ in the privacy of their own homes. Terry Madison of Open Doors Ministries says the arrests took place January 7th. Madison says this isn't a surprise for that Muslim nation. "They have, for a number of years, topped our biannual world watch list where they list the most repressive countries in the world toward Christian belief and toward believers. And, this event is an indication that they have not changed that policy." Five of those in custody are under 12. Madison says we need to pray that God will use the remnant of Christians who are there. "It's difficult to suppress the Holy Spirit. And when people are in fellowship as the Christians in Saudi are, you have to believe that the Lord is using them by the manner of life, the fruits of the spirit and the other evidences of a transformed life that somehow the message gets out."
