Martyrs: Caught Red Handed


Has this happened to you for handing out a Gospel tract or Bible lately?

Five evangelists were arrested in the Maldives for spreading, “religious propaganda of the Christian religion” along the roads of Male. According to a VOM News source, the five men had translated the Bible into their language and were distributing copies throughout the Islamic nation. null Maldives is a nation of 1200 islands and only about 200 are inhabited. Approximately 250,000 people live in the Maldives and more than 99% are Muslims. Government officials oppose Christian evangelism and use federal powers to enforce allegiance to Islam.

A newspaper account reported that one of the men arrested was caught, “red handed” while placing the material on the roads of Male. The printed material contained “various information about that (the Christian) religion, such as the benefits or advantages of knowing that religion.”
