HUNGARY BOASTS “WE ARE A CHRISTIAN NATION”

Thank You, God, for this conference in Hungary for persecuted Christians and for the Christian faith of the leaders of Hungary. Bless them and help them.

Hungary is holding its 2nd International Conference on Christian Persecution 2019 in Budapest this week to keep a bright light shining on the plight of Christians around the world. . . .

Keynote speakers for the event include Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán; Nigerian Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah; and Gewargis III, patriarch of the Assyrian Church of the East. Tristan Azbej, Hungary’s state secretary for the Aid of Persecuted Christians, and Rev. Joseph Kassab, head of the Evangelical Community of Syria and Lebanon, are also conference speakers.

The Orbán government has been on the front lines of aid to persecuted Christians around the world, sending financial and logistical assistance so that Christians are not forced to migrate from their lands for economic reasons.

This summer, Mr. Azbej lamented a “wall of silence” that has been erected around the problem of Christian persecution, despite the enormity of the problem on a global scale.

Speaking at the 2019 Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom, hosted by the U.S. State Department in Washington, DC, Azbej explained why Hungary has focused attention on Christian persecution.

“My title is State Secretary for the Aid of Persecuted Christians. I believe I am the only government official in the world with this title,” Azbej began in his July 16 address to the Ministerial, eliciting spontaneous applause.

We are a Christian nation. We are proud to say that,” he said. “There are not many European countries where politicians are allowed to say such a thing.”

“Currently in the world Christianity is the most persecuted religion. Eighty percent of the people who are persecuted for their faith in the world are Christians,” he added.

“So, this is why we have set up a program to aid them. But I have to clarify here that we are not only providing direct assistance to Christians; that wouldn’t be very Christian like, would it?” he said. “So, our support for Christians is explicit but not exclusive.”

“We have seen that there is a neglect, there is a wall of silence built around this problem,” Azbej noted. . . .

The Budapest conference will run from November 23-26.

  1. May God’s blessing abound toward Hungary for their bold witness to the world!
    May the Church of Jesus Christ world-wide be encouraged by such a clear stand
    as Hungary’s leadership has taken. The Lord God is being glorified by these
    courageous and faithful people. Rejoicing with my brethren of Hungary.

  2. AS A HUNGARIAN BORN WOMAN OF 76, I’M SO PROUD OF MY BIRTH COUTRY, AND THANKFUL THAT THIS PRESENT LEADERSHIP HAS SO BOLDLY PROFESSED THIS AWESOME NATION AS CHRISTIAN. NEXT YEAR, I WANT TO ATTEND AND SUPPORT THIS WONDERFUL CONFERENCE, AND MAY THEIR NEIGHBOURING NATIONS PROCLAIM CHRIST FOR THEIR PEOLPES ALSO.

    1. I am so happy Hungary is doing this! We are rejoicing together!!!

      Here is a quote from our own Ambassador of the United States:
      “The Secretary of State announced this at the ministerial we did earlier this year, Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom. He announced the creation of an International Religious Freedom Alliance, and this is us inviting other nations to join us in a concerted effort to push against religious persecution all around the world.”

      We have much to rejoice and praise God for!!!

  3. We pray that this Hungarian inititive will quickly catch on to become the 1st of many such government portfolios worldwide. Good on you Hungary for your response to this significant issue.

    1. I can only add an ‘Amen’ to this prayer. It would be my prayer as well that more countries would get involved. We hear about this in the United States, but wouldn’t it be wonderful if our country was blatantly proclaiming their Christianity. I am grateful that we still have that freedom, but there are so many other forces at work trying to override Christianity with their own sinful agendas. Praise God that He knows every single heart. I pray that He will set it all right in His time and that Christians will remain faithful to prayer and supplication until that time comes and ‘His Will Is Done.’

  4. Oh Lord, God of nations, and Sovereign over all, bless the nation of Hungary for their courageous declaration! Bless them with your protection and bless mightily their efforts on behalf of persecuted Chistians. O God, we stand with your suffering saints as if in chains with them. Hear our cries on their behalf! Grant them strength, comfort, courage, and deliverance for your name’s sake. And may other nations, including ours, become nations that can proclaim themselves to be Christian, Christ-honoring nations once again!

      1. Awesome God,thank you for the nation of Hungaryand their BOLD declaration of their allegiance to you. Please continue to shield them from ‘inside enemies’that may polute the spiritual environment.

    1. Amen and amen. May your Name be lifted up for the world to know You, Lord Jesus. We lift up the persecuted and ask your blessing on Hungary and on all those working and suffering for your Name. Open the eyes of our people to your truth and give us courage to proclaim it and shine your light in a darkened world. Thank you, Father, for being with us and for courageous Christians!

  5. Lord, Jesus, as this conference draws to a close, spread the word. Let all the participants and Christians everywhere, know that you are listening. Thank you Lord, for these brave souls, and let the prayers that are being prayed today multiply. May we all stand strong and courageous, throughout the world, for You and the saints throughout our nations. Amen
