"WHY ARE CHRISTIANS BEING PERSECUTED?"
To help them!  Look at what happened to the Jewish after World War II.  They started a
nation.  They learned how to fight for their freedom.   They realized that the right to BE
FREE REQUIRES FIGHTING FOR GOD together, and they fought physically to be free
and to be safe.

Before that the Jewish were to busy making money.  They were taking advantage of
others, thinking that making a 300% profit was fair.  Sleeping with other people, that were
not their spouses was Ok.  Investing in material things instead of God was all right.  They
went to the religious ceremonies, and went through the motions, but their heart was not
with God.  They had drifted farther and farther away from God.   They turned the houses
of worship into houses of ill repute.  They lived in evil, and smugly believed they were the
chosen ones.  So God would forgive them, and forgive them, and forgive them.  

But God watched, as they listened to every single thing satan told them to justify their
sins.   More and more justified sins. Until he got sick of it.  
So just like many times
before,  he choose a nation to strike them down and make them pay for their
disrespect.
 Then they were killed and made slaves, because they felt being chosen
means you can be disobedient.  Well that nation and many other nations came in and
destroyed almost everyone of these disobedient people.  It seemed nowhere was safe
for them, as God called for them to pay the price for their arrogance.  And that is what
happens when you keep disobeying God.  He only puts up with it for so long.  He only
gives you so many chances.  Many of the ones that lived, realized they do need to listen
to God and learned to fight for their God.  And learned to respect people again.  They
also learned being Jewish does not make you great.  God is great and we are not.

Christians need to learn the same thing.  They are arrogant.  They think they are great,
and have the right to sin as much, as they can justify through satan.  They think making
a 300% profit is Ok and God don't care what they do, as long as they say the word
JESUS.   They think God don't see what they do and God don't hear every thought they
have. Their lies and their jealousy.  Their cowardliness and fear.  And most of all.  Their
laziness expecting God to do it all for them.  While they do nothing for God except stuff
their face.
At The Command Of God.
They Will Pay For Their Disrespectful Blasphemy, Until They Are Destroyed
