What Would You Do?
(Source: VOM Australia)
A teenage girl in Algeria became a Christian after watching Christian TV broadcasts. She openly declared her faith to her science teacher. The Muslim teacher told her that Jesus is not the Son of God and He didn’t die on the cross. (Read about Muslim beliefs here.) The school notified the girl’s family, and the family began receiving threats from community members. The girl’s Muslim family ordered her to stop attending church and reading the Bible.
