  1. The irony of it all is that “modern” day Christians are because a “threat” to our present-day secular society. We Christians are free to gather and worship freely at present, but how long before we are unable to do so and must gather and worship in secrecy? When we Christians start being persecuted, as were Christians (particularly the Apostles) in Biblical times, we must be courageous and steadfast in our faith. Many will not endure, but as sure as I’m writing this, the days of persecution are coming.
