Afghanistan – Where Faith Is A Matter of Life And Death: prophecy news watch… “For many years, Afghanistan has been reported as one of the top 50 most dangerous countries in which to follow Jesus. In 2023 they were listed as one of the top 10 most dangerous countries. Once Taliban forces took back control of Afghanistan in 2021, the persecution of religious minorities skyrocketed. This shift drove Christians deep into hiding to stay alive. As a predominantly Muslim country, being open about your belief in Jesus could cost you your life. Christians are living in fear for their lives.”

[d]adultery, [e]fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,
20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies,
outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,
21 envy, [f]murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like;
of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past,
that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

[e] sexual immorality
