I am very concerned that Christians live up to their profession of faith. I want to share thoughts on walking the walk and being sure that our walk matches our talk. Partial or weekend Christians are oxymorons; they simply don’t exist. The Christian life, though, is not hard, not if you are truly motivated by love for God and gratitude for what He has done for you in Christ. It is a response of love, not a grit-your-teeth-I’ll-do-this-or-die-trying ordeal. We love because He first loved us.
Christians throughout the world often have to face the prospect of martyrdom for their beliefs. What would it be like to be a Christian in Saudi Arabia or Iran? What if, by law, you were told you could not share what you believe on pain of death? In certain countries, anyone who converts to Christianity from Islam has a death sentence already decreed against him.
I would welcome any comments on this, as well as any personal experiences or accounts of others who have had to face this attitude.
Do you see any of this surfacing in America at this time?
