Persecution of Christians is not taken seriously. This will continue as it is not important, right?
We hear Christians being killed for practicing their faith in their churches, homes and even wearing a crucifix. Not much interest is shown when they are persecuted and killed in the Asian, Arab and African countries. Over the past year we have seen an increase in these numbers. But, it is what Christ warned us. "You will be persecuted in my Name. They persecuted me and they will persecute you".
Be prepared to die as martyrs. Not kill others (and self in the process) and call yourself a martyr
