Paul Was Ready to Die
| "But we had the
sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but
in God which raiseth the dead" (1 Cor. 1:9). This great apostle
suffered much for the cause of Christ. There were those who sought his
life at every turn because of the faith he preached. But he did not turn
from his convictions and duty. He put his trust in God come what may. We
must do the same thing.
Some have the idea that today's Christians in America will not have to face what the early church faced regarding persecution and death for the faith. Don't be too sure. If the present government and the goons that control it succeed in their goals there will be no freedom of speech, freedom of religion, or means of protection against a tyrannical pro-Islam government. This pack of depraved scum that is now in power would destroy Christianity if they could. We must be ready for their evil.
