I always wonder how many Christians there would be if Christianity was frowned upon. In the Easter services there are passages of Christ proclaiming his faith even tho others spit on him, beat him, despise him, and even kill him. How many Christians would there be if they were treated like homosexuals in the 50's; or black folks in the deep south under jim crow? (Someone please tell me how to punctuate the previous sentence.)
What do you think and do you know anyone who would still be a Christian if Christians were persecuted.
