I read a comment from someone on Facebook: "What makes you think Christians are being persecuted?"
Persecution of Christians has been happening right from the start. In 2 John, chapter 11, verse 54, even Jesus had to escape from the persecution of Caiaphas.
In Acts 5: 21, 29-32, the apostles were persecuted and jailed.
Jesus was always very plain about the prophecies. He was asked by his disciples what were the signs of the end of the world.
In Matthew 24: 7, 8, 9
7For nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there shall be famines and pestilences and earthquakes in divers places.
8All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted and shall kill you, and ye shall be hated by all nations for My name's sake.
If you're not a Christian, you're turning a blind eye towards this happening in our own country. If you are a Christian here in the U.S.A., you already know it's happening here and is going to get worse.
Why do you think Christians are fighting so hard to keep our constitutional rights. America was founded by people who were trying to get away from a country where there was an official church. That's why the first thing they took care of was the rights of freedom of speech, AND to keep ANY laws being made either for or against religious practices.
Anytime you have a country with an official religion, you're going to have people killed for having their own beliefs. People are being killed for being Christian all over the world. It not only CAN happen here in America, it's GOING to happen here.
Watch what's happening in the Muslim countries and remember that is the fastest growing religion in the world. Our own president made the statement that America is no longer a Christian nation, but that we are now a Muslim nation. That sent cold chills down my back when I heard him say that. I mean, I live in the south and it's way too hot to wear a burka down here. Besides the fact, I could get real touchy if some jerk approached me with a cane because I didn't have a man with me when I was shopping.
If America becomes an official Muslim country, not only will Christians be killed, but atheists will be killed also. Think about that when you're making fun of Christians for believing in God.
Will it happen in America? According to verse 9, it says ALL nations.
If you're a voter, you better try to preserve our freedoms as long as possible, because they're quickly being taken away.
This is another sign that we're close to the end of the world as we know it, and it's not that far away.
