“…some of whom they will kill…”

We’ve decided to pull the video we had featured in this post until its accuracy can be verified. We agree with the following statement from Justin Taylor regarding the videos in question and add our apology for any contribution we may have made to confusion about the very real persecution of Christians going on in India (and elsewhere):

I’ve been in touch with the folks from Cornerstone Community Church, and the videos are being pulled until their accuracy can be verified.

The question is not, as one commenter thought, about whether or not we doubt that severe persecution is occurring in India or in other parts of the world. The question is whether or not the footage in these videos is depicting Christians being persecuted for their faith. If it’s not, we don’t want to show it, as doing so knowingly would be both misleading and manipulative.

I apologize for my contribution to any confusion. I hope this doesn’t distract from the fact that such persecution is real and terrible, requiring prayers for our brothers and sisters. Again, I commend to you
