Speaking the truth, is sometimes very hard to do, with all the opposition we face in our world today. America, is facing a battle, that will become hard fought. We as believers, must be true to our religion and God.
1 Peter 4:12-14 ESV
Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.
The Bible clearly says that Christians will be persecuted. It still happens today in many different forms, from being mocked to murder. Still, you should not let persecution stop you from being a Christian. Accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior is one of the most important things you should do in your life. Don't avoid it just because of the persecution.
