Website for the film

No time in history has been bloodier for Jesus' followers. Throughout the world, Christians are being threatened, beaten, raped and killed simply for being believers. And yet, the American church remains inactive and largely unaware of their sufferings.
"Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world at present."
- Nina Shea, The Hudson Institute
Christian persecution has been a reality for more than 2,000 years. While tragic, it is not a story of defeat. Instead, those who find themselves in the crosshairs of violence today count it a blessing to stand among the faithful throughout history. In the face of persecution, these followers of Christ fear compromise more than death itself.
Love Costs Every Thing maps the history of Christian persecution from the first martyrs to seven present-day stories of faith that knows no price.
Filmed in Iraq, Columbia, India, Egypt, France and the United States, this feature-length documentary includes commentary from US Congressmen, foreign government officials, religious leaders and scholars.
Faithfulness is the goal of every Christian. Reminding the audience of this truth, and encouraging them to stand firm in their faith, is the first goal of this film. Second, Love Costs Every Thing reveals what persecution looks like today in relation to history. The final goal is to spur viewers to action in light of this injustice.
Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them   in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering. Hebrews 13
