Armenia: Centuries of Christian Persecution

While Armenia is considered the world’s oldest Christian nation, its very existence is being threatened by the neighbouring country of Azerbaijan. Churches in Armenia continue to be desecrated by the Azeri military, and now the country has been given an ultimatum: If they refuse to surrender its southern border with Iran, there will be war.

In this episode of Closer to the Fire, host Greg Musselman is joined by Dr. Haig Kherlopian, the lead pastor of the Armenian Evangelical Church of New York. Dr. Kherlopian has studied the ancient Christian heritage of Armenia to better understand the country’s current situation, as well as the 1,700 years of persecution against Armenian followers of Jesus.
