Persecution For Christ's Sake (Paperback)
Adrian Rogers said, "The new whipping boy in the world today is the Bible-believing Christian." Growing animosity to and persecution of Christians, the evangelical church, religious institutions and missionary endeavors are accelerating. To speak out "for Christ's sake" biblical specificities in regard to morality, ethics, convictions, and doctrinal beliefs bring bitter and venomous opposition and oppression (censorship of speech, defamation of character, discrimination, intolerance, ostracization, confiscation of property, revocation of sponsorship, religious liberty restraint, boycott, slanderous accusation, bombing and burning of churches, torture, execution, etc.).
Persecuted for Christ's Sake sounds the wake-up call to Christians to prepare for the coming storm of hostile opposition and persecution by learning and embracing biblical principles set forth by Christ about its noble and courageous response and through the example of David, Daniel, Nehemiah, Paul, John the Baptist, Peter, John, Stephen, the saints at the church of Smyrna, Polycarp, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jim Elliot and other persecuted believers.
