In an article from www.bpnews.net it reminds us of some of the things people actually sometimes go through because of religion preference.
In Pakistan there is a draft of a new bill being brought before a committee.
“Pakistan's National Assembly would require men who leave Islam to be put to death. Women convicted of "apostasy" would be sentenced to life in prison.”
“Under the Apostasy Act 2006, the testimony of two adults that another person has left the Muslim religion –- or a confession by the accused -– is all that would be needed for conviction if the bill is adopted into law. The accused would be given up to 30 days to renounce the decision and return to Islam, yet even then still could be punished by up to two years in prison. All property belonging to an offender would be forfeited to Muslim relatives as well as custody of their children.”
The article continues with other persecutions of Christians.
What do we here in America know of true persecution for being a Christians? Sure there are things that happen, things that are allowed, things that are not allowed, etc. that we do not agree with, but as for persecution I just don’t believe the majority of us have an idea of what that is all about.
Maybe I am wrong. Has anyone dealt with persecution because one is a Christian whether personally or known someone here in America?
According to scripture it is coming. Are you spiritually prepared?
