An underground church that partners with Frontier Alliance International (FAI), has reported that the Taliban are in search of Christians to murder. As reported by The Daily Wire, according to the FAI:
The Taliban has a hit list of known Christians they are targeting to pursue and kill. The US Embassy is defunct and there is no longer a safe place for believers to take refuge. All borders to neighboring countries are closed and all flights to and from have been halted, with the exception of private planes. People are fleeing into the mountains looking for asylum. They are fully reliant on God, who is the only One who can and will protect them.
The Taliban are going door-to-door taking women and children. The people must mark their house with an “X” if they have a girl over 12 years old, so that the Taliban can take them. If they find a young girl and the house was not marked they will execute the entire family. If a married woman 25 years or older has been found, the Taliban promptly kill her husband, do whatever they want to her, and then sell her as a sex slave.
Husbands and fathers have given their wives and daughters guns and told them that when the Taliban come, they can choose to kill them or kill themselves—it is their choice.
Additionally, the Taliban are purportedly searching individuals’ phones searching for any Christian apps that might give them away.
“We’re hearing from reliable sources that the Taliban demand people’s phones, and if they find a downloaded Bible on your device, they will kill you immediately” said president of the Christian nonprofit organization SAT-7 North America, Dr. Rex Rogers.
Rogers added, “it’s incredibly dangerous right now for Afghans to have anything Christian on their phones. The Taliban have spies and informants everywhere.”
In a gut wrenching video released by FAI, a member of Afghanistan’s underground church emotionally describes the situation:
“We are unable to control our emotions because we’ve worked so hard for 20 years” said the man in the video whose face is blurred and voice disguised. “All of our work over the past 20 years has been lost overnight. Only God understands how much pain we have and how broken our hearts are. We are not crying out of fear, but because our hearts ache for our beautiful country. It has now been destroyed by this savage and extremist group.”
“The whole world has abandoned us” the man says.
