Can't have Bible studies in homes? In San Diego? Well, it had to happen sooner or later. And certainly if the scriptures are true, it was bound to happen - even here. Still, it shakes you. Nobody I know of thought Christians would be openly persecuted in our generation, not in America. Is this the beginning of things to come or is it a big misunderstanding?
The reader comments to this article are also worth the read! It's good to see others are outraged by this as well. : )
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and you shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness to all nations; and then shall the end come.
Maranatha! Soli Deo Gloria!
