Season 3: Episode 2: Defending the Persecuted: An Interview with Mervyn Thomas of Christian Solidarity Worldwide

September 23, 2022

There are times when it is appropriate for the followers of Jesus to fight for one’s legal rights. The Apostle Paul did so on several occasions, and it could be argued that he defended his legal rights to further the Kingdom of God. Even Jesus defended Himself at one point during His trial – not to protest His suffering, but as a testimony of His innocence.


In this episode of Closer to the Fire, host Greg Musselman is joined by Mervyn Thomas, the founder and president of Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW). Mervyn discusses the importance of advocating for our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ, as well as defending the freedom of religion for people of all faiths. He also describes the most dangerous places in the world to be a Christian and addresses the challenges he encounters in his work at CSW.
