And outside of the United States and in.

America the land of the free, where I am allowed to practice my religion freely. Greatest thing ever. But outside of this great countries  borders things are a little different. For example I’m going to list a couple links to stories that I have seen pop up over the last few days.

2012-06-15 Chinese House Church Raided During Baptism Service, 17 Detained By Police
2012-06-17 Boko Haram: ‘Christians are our enemies’
Hindus Brutally Attack Christians in Orissa: 20 Injured, Families Flee Monday, June 18th, 2012

This as I said is in the last couple days. But whats really crazy is we are starting to slowly see it here in America. We tend to focus on the big things that happen, but their are small things that happening that shouldn’t be happening.

Like this story out of New York – NY principal bans God Bless The USA

Jesus tells us that we should not be surprised of persecution and that we should remember that they first hated him. America is slowly heading down the road of removing religion freedoms. There are other stories such as buffalo cops threatening to arrest a man for sharing his faith. I guess what I’m saying is be prepared, get into your Bible, and learn to rely only on God.
