24 Vietnamese Christians Attacked, Forced to Renounce Christ

Thursday, March 22, 2018

(Worthy News) - Two dozen Christians in Vietnam were recently attacked by a mob for their faith.

The incident happened in the north-western highlands of the country when members of an ethnic group known as Hmong decided to accept Jesus Christ.

Their conversion provoked the village chief who threatened to expel the believers from the community if they didn't renounce their new-found faith.

The Hmong Christians refused to recant, prompting a mob to attack them. According to the Vietnam Committee on Human Rights (VCHR), four of the Christians were hospitalized with injuries to the head and arms. [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]

  1. The title of this article is a lie. No where in the source article does it say or imply that these brave new Christians renounced their new faith in Jesus Christ.
    As Believers, we all must be willing to die to stand with Christ and his Gospel of salvation by faith (trust) that he is the Way to reconcilliation with all that is the God of Abraham, Issac, King David and all the (true) apostles of Messiah.

    If any of them recanted, where/who reports it?

    This is a serious error. These Hmong knew the risck they took to accept Jesus Christ so in that country and area.

    The source also says:

    "Roman Catholics are by far the largest Christian community (in Vietnam)."

    However, it was found that among the Hmong are found a very high proportion of Protestants. Finally, this is a correct report in the respect that it (most likely) a true report of Christian Persecution. So, who tempered it by saying they recanted? And why are the source articles not telling us that. It's the most important part of this news piece.

    Also from the source (see link at bottom of above article):

    "These small Christian groups in the remote highland areas are being forced to join the larger, state-registered denominations," said Vo Van Ai, president of VCHR in a statement. "This is not only impractical – the churches are based in the large towns – but local Christians also object that state-registered churches have compromised on religious practices in order to obtain registration."

    After researching this news some more, we find at gueme.org that these 24 Christians might very well be Christians, as they are new converts from within the Hmong tribe in Vietname and that group has a very high percentage of Protestants. Of the 24, 4 were sent to hospital.

    "Of the one million Hmong in Vietnam, there are an estimated 300,000 Christians, a proportion much higher than rest of the population."
