Last Days Persecution: A Christian Pastor Shot Dead In India

John 16:1-4 KJV
"These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. [2] They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. [3] And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. [4] But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you."

Many of we Christians thinks or have it in mind that Islam is the only religion that has hatred against Jesus or Christianity. Not at all!
