Let My People Go
Let My People Go: The War Against the Eradication of the Global Church
Beheadings. Crucifixions. Staged mass executions on display for the world to see.
Radical Islamic extremists are targeting and terrorizing Christians and other religious minorities throughout the Middle East and Africa. Attacks are now spilling over into Europe and the West. Religious persecution is expanding dramatically and religious minorities – especially Christians – are now facing horrendous attacks – and all too often – death.
This persecution cannot be ignored. It is critical that we speak out – sound an alarm – be a true voice – a powerful advocate – for the persecuted church.
In Let My People Go: The War Against the Eradication of the Global Church, ACLJ Films shares the powerful stories of the persecuted and those fighting for their freedom. This documentary goes behind the scenes to tell the compelling stories of a number of Christians who have been targeted because of their faith. Imprisoned American Pastor Saeed Abedini remains captive in Iran. His wife, Naghmeh, and their two young children face extraordinary pain and uncertainty. In Pakistan, Asia Bibi is imprisoned - on death row. And there are other Christians including Meriam Ibrahim and Pastor Youcef Nadarkani who have faced persecution for their faith, as well. ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow and others provide a detailed look at what’s behind this persecution – the rise of ISIS – the Islamic State. The goal of these radical jihadists: to wipe out Christianity. In a dangerous world where there’s growing chaos and conflict, there is still hope. We take a look at what can be done. And we shine a spotlight on the defenders of the faith – the men and women who are putting their own lives at risk to stand-up for the persecuted church.
“Let My People Go” is a powerful look at this battle – a critical fight against religious persecution around the globe. And what can be done – what must be done – to save the persecuted church.
