Persecution of Christians a Reality
In our country a form of Christianity is practiced where people are unwilling to recognize the cost to follow Christ. However in the world abroad, believers engage in a hostile atmosphere where society is in direct opposition to the advancement of the Kingdom of God. I believe eventually in order to practice true authentic Christianity where it is proclaimed without relativism and pluralism mixed in- persecution will and must come to America. If we are to boldly claim the only truth of Christ himself: " I am the way the truth and the life no man comes unto the Father except by Me"- we must expect hostility. Because the truth of scripture and the lie of the world will not mix and resistance will emerge. This polar opposite will rise on both sides and followers of Jesus will have to stand on one side or the other- because you can't be in the middle. You will have to be for or against, in or out, believe or not believe, hot or cold. Jesus says: "because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth".(Rev. 3:16) Therefore standing for Christ will be a must in the future.
