What Exploits Will Christians Do Under Persecution?


Editor’s note: This is the second in a series of six articles about persecution by WCFS graduate, missionary, and current WCFS project manager Tim Shell. They are adapted from a message series he presented earlier this year. You can watch this message on the WCFS YouTube Channel. It is titled “The Greatest Exploit: Loving the Unlovely.”



The probability of Christians in the US experiencing persecution is increasing daily and has perhaps already begun with the first step of eliminating the voice of believers from society.


If current trends continue, the Christian living today may well experience physical persecution within their lifetime. So, how should we then live? This second article in this series offers considerations on Christian persecution drawing both on Scripture and on stories of more recent believers who lived through persecution and overcame it by faith.
