Christian Persecution is Much Closer Than You Think

As we quietly meander along life’s journey choosing our battles, aligning ourselves with one political party or the other, we feel as though we are really making a difference. We may feel as though we are on the right side of history. On the other hand, everyone is making their own political or religious statement casting a larger shadow of confusion over a beleaguered world. Everyone has his own opinion. In the midst of this confusion, the only thing we know for certain is that God’s true children will be persecuted. The Bible says, “Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you; and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake” (Matthew 24:9).

I believe that most of us have no idea what it feels like to be treated like a criminal. Most of us would not want to even imagine it, but we must seriously think about it. Don’t think for a minute that Christian persecution is anything different than being treated like a criminal. Christians since the beginning have been persecuted not because they were nice loving people but because they were perceived to be criminals of the first order. We have seen this for two thousand years beginning with our Lord Jesus Christ who was arrested on the charges of blasphemy and accused of sedition against the Roman Empire for claiming to be a King. This was followed by the early Christians being accused of being cannibals for eating the flesh of Jesus and drinking His blood during their love feast. Then Rome justified their persecution by claiming that they were arsons, burning down a section of the city, which destroyed homes and businesses of their fellow citizens. As I have already written Christians were also persecuted on the charge of sedition for claiming to follow another King rather than Caesar as lord. Continue reading Christian Persecution
