Pakistani Christians still face persecution

Though Christianity has been present in Pakistan since soon after the time of Jesus, it was the 19th-century Western missionaries who had the most impact on Christianity’s viability in the area. When Pakistan was formed in 1947 as a home for newly independent India’s Muslim minority, the country’s founder, Muhammed Ali Jinnah, declared freedom of religion for all faiths. But the religious tolerance in Pakistan has been fading. An article by Joan Huyser-Honig, written for the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, explains Pakistan’s religious history and the danger religious minorities face. The Calvin Institute is an interdisciplinary study and ministry center that promotes the scholarly study of the theology, history, and practice of Christian worship and the renewal of worship in communities worldwide. Learn more by following the resource links, and use the discussion questions to start a conversation.
