Jeremy Hunt was asked by Conservative MP Luke Hall what he learned from trips to countries like Nigeria about what more we can do, as a Government, to tackle the appalling persecution of Christians in the region.
Responding, Mr Hunt said: “I had a roundtable of faith leaders at the British high commissioner’s residence in Nigeria, and we had a very good discussion on this issue.
“The main thing that I took away from that discussion is the immensely important role that politicians have in developing countries in not fanning populism and hatred between religions in election campaigns, which is a very easy route to go down but can have immensely damaging consequences.”
He also agreed with Conservative MP Sir David Anthony Evennett that following the Bishop of Truro’s interim report on the persecution of Christians, the Government needs to be “even more public and more forceful in calling out persecution where it is identified”.
Thank you Bishop @pmounstephen for your hard-hitting interim report on Christian persecution across the globe. It comes as the world is reeling after horrific attacks on churches in #SriLanka. Look forward to next stage as you examine what more #FCO can dohttps://t.co/UyRDCkuBEX

“We will obviously await the bishop’s final report,” Mr Hunt said.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
