Lately I have seen news post about Christian churches hosting Muslim and allowing them to pray in their churches. One church in England even offered to cover up a cross and portrait of Jesus, not to offend the Muslim people who were coming there. What a truly sad thing to see this happening and it is all around us. Where are the true Christians in the world? Where are the ones who will stand up for the gospel of Christ?
It is not hard to say, that without standing for gospel of Christ, Christianity will cease to exist. Christians need to take a bold stance on what they believe in. Don’t allow anyone to corrupt your beliefs. Its not going to be easy, but we must stand for the faith, despite all cost. Yes, it may cost us our jobs, our friends and even our life. Some have lost their lives recently in Nigeria and other parts of the world for standing for Christianity.
2 Corinthians 4:3-10 says: But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
