Who will die in the name of Christ our Lord and Saviour? Living here in the States where at the worst people will just call you bad names and talk smack about you for being Christian, it is just, I don't know, when hearing about people whose lives are in jepordy for following Jesus and seeking him. Lucky for Mr. Abdul Rahman of Afganistan he was found mentally incompetent to stand trial and will survive the state putting him to death. Unfortunately, the people of Afganistan, some of them may be a danger to Mr. Rahman and possibly the many Christians who live in secret.
Was the early church like this? Hiding under the guise of being Jewish to avoid death and when having to show their cards, dying?
When you throw death into the mix it does stand to wonder what all that is contained in this demonimation or that you are willing to die for?
