And this was done A.D. 1418…Thus resteth this valiant Christian knight, Sir John Oldcastle, under the altar of God, which is Jesus Christ, among the godly company, who, in the kingdom of patience, suffered great tribulation with the death of their bodies, for His faithful word and testimony.” (Foxe’s Book of Martyrs) Help us dear Lord to make the good confession and to forgive our enemies if placed in a similar fate.

Religious Tolerance

Christ taught us to love all people. His Holy Apostles taught us to speak the truth in love, which was followed by the early Christian martyrs. In the power of God’s Holy Spirit they confessed that their persecutors were idolaters, devil worshipers, and followed the doctrine of demons. Why is the contemporary Christian mute when it comes to the Muslim or other world religions that follow false prophets and offer sacrifice to demons? As the world races toward the abyss of eternal damnation and we keep silent out of fear we cannot say that we love our neighbor.
