Going rate to kill pastor: $250

Posted: July 2, 2010 in End times, Persecuted

It is hard to imagine that in this day and age there are people who have a bounty on their head.  It is even harder to imagine for many Christians living in the west that this bounty is being placed upon the heads of fellow Christians.  Persecution has grown dramatically over the last few years.  Can you imagine waking up the next morning and finding out that someone is willing to pay to have you killed.  That means  just about anyone including possible relatives or friends who decide to kill you will benefit from your death.

The Bible say that a time will come when there will be religious people who will seek to kill you and believe that it is Gods will.

  • Mat 24:9-   Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
  • Mat 10:28   And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
  • Jhn 16:2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.

Hindu extremist groups are offering money, food and alcohol to anyone who murders Christians and destroys their homes.

The violence is nothing new in Orissa, India, where India’s Communist Party estimates that more than 500 Christians have been killed by Hindu mobs in Orissa since late August, 12 times more than official government claims of only 40 homicides.

But now the stakes are even higher – and pastors have a bounty on their heads.

Faiz Rahman, chairman of Good News India, said Hindu militants are targeting Christian leaders, the Christian Post reported.

“The going price to kill a pastor is $250,” he said.

Rahman, a head of several orphanages in Orissa State, said he’s helped 25 pastors to leave refugee camps, but 250 Christian leaders are still in shelters.

“All of the pastors are high value targets,” Rahman told the UK-based Release International. “We’ve got to get them out of the refugee camps.”

An All-India Christian Council spokesman said, “People are being offered rewards to kill, and to destroy churches and Christian properties. They are being offered foreign liquor, chicken, mutton and weapons. They are given petrol and kerosene.

    Religous freedom is always a problem. I think a lot of people in the secular community do not talk about Christian persecution.

    I consider myself as non-believer but it is wrong that these people get persecuted for their faith. It is very wrong and these Hindus pride themselves as being tolerant are not tolerant.

    It is wrong and I hope that the Indian government cracks down on these people
