Taking A Stand For Your Faith

As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as
sheep for the slaughter. Romans 8:36

“As it is written,” in Psalm 44:22. Paul quoted this verse as a picture of what the Church and particularly he were going through. It’s a vivid and disturbing description. Here are God’s saints: “killed perpetually,” and “sheep for slaughter.”

Read the Foxe’s Book of Martyrs and see the horrendous things done to the Christian. Something about religion, that riles a person to violence. My way is right, and if you don’t agree, I kill you.

We have an adversary who is out to kill, steal, and destroy. He will stir up hatred and violence against God and His believers. Men have hated the Children of God from the time God set them up as a nation. Evil men hate the Jewish people and men tried to annihilate them. It is true for the Church. There are haters out there in the world.

An international interfaith conference has revealed that 105,000 Christians are being killed every year simply for their faith. We’ll see verse 37 in a couple of days.
