Examples of Christian Persecution in the United States

How are Christians persecuted in the United States? Persecution usually involves pain and death, at least in our minds, and we don't usually see that in this country. We don't usually think about persecution at all in the U. S., but Randy Alcorn, a well-known author and scholar, tells about his experience and the life-long consequences of a bold faith. Mark Driscoll interviews Alcorn over at the Resurgence.

Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. - Jesus in John 15:20

May we pray for boldness, not comfort.

Scary to think about persecution. But it will come.

Here's a good video on it - Paul Washer on Persecution - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7UyZYpeReY
