Christian, are you ready for persecution?

“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first… If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also….They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me.” (Excerpts from John 15:18-21)
Did you ever, in your wildest imagination, think there would be a time in this great nation when someone could get fired for being a Christian?  No?  Me either.  But it has genuinely come to that.  Of course, no one would dare use “being a Christian” as the grounds for firing someone. Oh, no.  We live in a free country and freedom of religion is still recognized. Firing someone for being a Christian would certainly be overturned in a court of law.
But a person can, indeed, be fired for “hate speech”. You know, saying out loud that the Bible speaks against homosexuality, gender dysphoria, abortion, and such.  But wait…aren’t those things bed-rock, historical, doctrine of conservative Christianity? What a coincidence.

And there is the double whammy of actually voting for a party whose platform most aligned with those beliefs.  That would mean you voted for Donald Trump and you are, by default, a racist, homophobic, misogynist, hater of all things “progressive” and your voice should not be heard.  The media has coined a phrase and is identifying you as a “Christian nationalist” and a danger to a free country.

So, while you may never be fired, chastised, maligned, and harassed strictly for being a Christian, you certainly will be if you voice and/or live out your Christian beliefs.  They may call it “stamping out hate” but it is truly persecution of Christianity.  Are you really ready for persecution?
