Persecution

Persecution

Persecution to the early Christians does not exist in North America today.

We oftentimes think of ourselves as persecuted when someone disagrees with us or declines to give us a job if we

aren’t able to work on Sabbath. (That’s more accurately described as religious discrimination.) But the

kind of persecution that the early believers endured was different. They faced death—horrible,

brutal deaths.

In other parts of the world Christians still face persecution in its truest sense. They risk their lives

and the lives of their families in order to worship God. They are willing to die in order to follow the law of God. Now that is devotion!

(To see what the Adventist Church is doing to fight religious discrimination and persecution, visit
