4 Christian preachers arrested in Libya

admin | 19 February 2013

In the Libyan city of Benghazi, the authorities have arrested 4 foreigners on charges of spreading Christian books.

In Libya, which is populated mainly by Muslims, preaching Christianity is banned.

According to the data of the Libyan police, 1 of the arrested people is a citizen of South Africa, 1 – of Egypt, 1 – of South Korea, and 1 has double citizenship – Swedish and US.

The police confiscated about 45,000 Christian books from the arrested people, who have testified that they have already spread 25,000 books.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
