"unfair" opposition to Christians in the USA . . .

Of course, if we are to believe Jesus warnings and "promises", none of us should be surprised at any of this! We are to live out our lives as living sacrifices, speaking Truth and Justice, but always as His ambassadors of Peace . . . even when we are persecuted. Yes, we should speak out, but always reflecting the One in Whose Name we do so . . . even in prayer. As one prone to a critical spirit much too often, I caution us all to keep always focused on Jesus Christ; His character and the Grace, Love and Power He imparts to us through the Spirit. Remember Christ's week of Passion, remember His demeanor before Pilate and others, even on the Cross . . . . "Father forgive them for they know not what they do." If we don't reflect the Love and Grace of Jesus Christ, then we do Him and our Faith great damage, and please the evil dweeb in the process. So, remember to be His "Light" as well as "salt".

only by Grace, pat
