I have been persecuted numerous times, including from some in-laws who are atheistic and evolutionary in their beliefs. Every time I have stood up in public for what the Bible teaches in regard to homosexuality and abortion, people have persecuted me.
This past September we held a seminar on Islam with brother Burt Jones, and we advertised it heavily, and people persecuted us in the newspaper, through e-mail, answering machine messages, and protests during one of Burt’s speeches.
These people persecuted me in particular, but through it all, we responded as Jesus taught us, and praised God that He counted us worthy to suffering for His Son’s name and truth! Praise God!
