The Christian ministry Open Doors tracks religious persecution around the world and compiled a list of 50 nations where it is dangerous to be a follower of Jesus Christ.
The ten most dangerous nations for Christians are:
- North Korea
- Saudi Arabia
The complete 2013 World Watch List is available here. Islamic countries, communist countries and countries with dictators fill the list.
In some Muslim countries converts from Islam to Christianity face a possible death sentence. Sharing the gospel is also illegal in many Muslim nations.
