Owning a Bible Could Land You in Prison in This Country

Christians across Uzbekistan are being imprisoned for owning Bibles.

The predominately Muslim country has one of the harshest dictatorships in Central Asia.

It is ranked number 15 on the Open Doors persecution watch list.

“The regime will do everything possible to stay in power – all forms of opposition and deviations from the norm will be ruthlessly attacked. Christianity is regarded as an alien and destabilizing factor,” reports Open Doors, an organization that seeks to end Christian persecution.

According to Christianity Today, a Christian named Stanislav Kim is currently under house arrest for having religious literature at home.

Government officials raid the homes of Christians to find books that have not been approved by the state-backed Muslim Board.

The crackdown on Bibles has made it difficult for many Christians to spread the gospel.

“Please pray for the Christians in Uzbekistan,” a source told Open Doors. “It’s getting more and more difficult to spread the gospel with literature.”
