Christian Man Dies After Being Forced To Spend Night In Cold Pond For Refusing To Deny Christ

A Christian man in India has died after he and his wife were forced to spend the night in a cold pond for refusing to deny Christ.

Bartu Urawn, 50, from Jharkhand state, survived the night, but has now died from illness which came on afterward.

Other villagers in Kubuaa, Palamu disrtrict were upset that he and his wife had deserted their indigenous faith.

They were made to spend the 17 hours overnight in the pond as punishment with their hands tied, their son Beneswar Urawn told Morning Star News.

After Bartu emerged, he became ill and suffered two bouts of paralysis due to nerve damage.

Beneswar Urawn said: 

'All throughout the night, they were in the cold water shivering, and I along with 15-20 villagers were witness to the brutality. The villagers kept asking my father if he is ready to forsake Christ and return to the Sarna fold."
He reiterated every time, "I will not deny Christ … I will continue to believe till my last breath."

Blogger's note: Christians in America live relatively secure and comfortable lives. Thousands of our Christian brothers and sisters live in countries where they face death simply for being a Christian. 

How many American Christians, who claim to love Jesus, would be willing to refuse to deny Christ, even in the face of certain death? If the church in America continues its apathy and indifference to the plight of our brothers and sisters, what persecution awaits us if we continue to ignore this genocide.

"Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." Matthew 25:40
