Practicing Christianity as a religion is prohibited in some countries around the world today. In fact, some countries have made it illegal to practice Christianity.
Listed below are the top three countries where it is unlawful to practice Christianity as a religion.
The three countries in question are as follows: North Korea, Somalia and Afghanistan.
The countries listed above are not the only ones where Christians are persecuted, but they are the ones where the Christian religion is most opposed. In North Korea for instance, their leader is the one who does not tolerate other religious practice especially Christianity.
North Korea and its leader are well-known for their harshness; nonetheless, they are one of the world’s most powerful countries, and research have revealed that hundreds of Christians in North Korea have gone missing since the 1990s, according to reports.
Somalia and Afghanistan are two Muslim countries in which the practice of Christianity is either illegal or outlawed. A Christian in Somalia will have to go unnoticed, or else he or she will be killed if their true identity is found by the local authorities. Afghanistan has anti-Christian legislation, however unlike the other two countries, there are still Christians and churches operating in the country.
The fact that we are in our country and openly serving God is a gift, as other Christians in other parts of the world find it difficult to serve God openly. As a result, we should recognize and express gratitude to God for the freedom we enjoy in our country.
