Recently Rev. Rick Hammond took our Adult Sunday School class on an enlightening journey concerning religious persecution in our country. Here you can listen to all nine sessions from Rev. Hammond's "Symposium on Religious Persecution." Informed Christians are sadly aware of the erosion of religious freedoms. As our society continues to embrace relativism and a newly defined tolerance, freedoms will decrease, bringing a sharp increase in religious persecution.
How American believers respond to God's sovereign plan for us to use these opportunities to grow spiritually, serve faithfully and stand honorably for His glory will be largely determined by our biblical grasp of truths relating to these challenges. Let there be no fear, no alarmism, no despair, no appeal to the "good old days." Let us prepare to think and act, pray and serve, leaving the future to God, Who alone plans and therefore knows the outcome.
