Are you ready for a little old-fashioned religious persecution? Because if this guy’s right, it’s coming whether we’re ready for it or not.
Don’t be so quick to dismiss persecution as the thing that happens somewhere ‘over there’.
It might not even be the jackboot persecution that we’re used to, so much as the softer persecution of being ‘canceled’, fired, and otherwise harassed for holding the ‘wrong’ sort of ideas.
So we’d do well to learn from how Christ’s Church weathered such attacks under the persecution of the Iron Curtain.
For one thing, we’re going to need some MUCH tougher skin when it comes to our definition of ‘suffering’.
For another, we’ll want to build the kind of networks on which the underground church was built and flourishes. Informal social networks. Prayer groups. The sort of thing that formed the backbone of the Czech underground church for 40 years.
This faith was not founded by timid leaders.
Nor will timid leaders be enough to carry us through real hardship that could be coming.

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
