Attacks on Churches Rise
A shocking new report revealed that there was a dramatic rise in attacks against churches in the first three months of 2023. Sixty-nine churches across the country saw vandalism, bomb-threats, arson, theft, and other forms of attack from January through March, a vast jump from previous years. In 2022, there were only twenty-two reported attacks on churches over a four-month period.
These attacks come amidst a rise in anti-Christian sentiment around the world. Many Christians are reporting levels of discrimination from friends, coworkers, and family. In the face of growing animosity, Christians need to be prepared for whatever attacks the world gives them while still eagerly anticipating the triumphant return of Christ, according to youth, culture and religion expert Alex McFarland.
Alex McFarland Tells Christians to Stay Strong in the Gospel
“Religious persecution is nothing new for Christianity,” said McFarland. “The Bible details the many times the early believers were discriminated against and attacked due to their faith in Christ yet remained steadfast in their resolve. As we in America are facing more and more attacks, it is more important than ever that we stand strong in our faith and continue to preach the message of the Gospel. The only antidote to such overt hate and fear is the powerful love of Christ.”
Alex McFarland and Alex McFarland Ministries are proud to announce the upcoming “Truth for a New Generation” conference from April 19-23, 2023, at Tennessee Valley Community Church in Paris, Tennessee. Designed for pastors, youth, and families to learn more about how to separate God’s truth from the lies of this world, the event will host notable speakers such as radio host and author Bert Harper, legal analyst Abraham Hamilton III, radio hosts Wil and Meeke Addison, apologist Carl Kerby, and Love Worth Finding Ministries President Cary Vaughn, along with McFarland himself. The speakers will touch on issues like truth in the modern world, how to identify absolute truth, and more.
