This morning our sermon was presented by a Bishop from Pakistan. He leads a group of believers in a land where they are beaten, discriminated against, arrested and murdered for their faith. It is an offence punishable by death to blaspheme Allah and of course preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ is considered exactly that.
This man from a land of intolerance stood up in our pulpit, looked out on the gathering of spoiled Christians who consider being wished "Happy Holidays" to be persecution, and said, "I am here to encourage you."
That's all I have to say about that.
