The Persecuted Church
The Book of Acts relates tales of Christian persecution. Unfortunately Christians today often operate under the assumption that persecution is a part of the Church’s past. The truth is that there are members of the Body of Christ that face severe persecution and restrictions as a result of their faith in Jesus Christ, every day.
