This year the news has been full of Christians being singled out and persecuted for their belief in Jesus Christ... It was the same in the early church as we read in scriptures and nothing since then has changed... If you read the 11 Chapter of Hebrews nothing has changed since the beginning of time... God people have always been persecuted and killed down through the ages just as it is now... In the Sermon On The Mount is a admonition from the Lord what we as his followers are suppose to do, yet if you were really faced with this dilemma what would you do?... All I can say is God give me grace that I would do the right thing... We can all say with conviction what we think we would do but until we are there can we really say for sure?.. Will we follow the instructions from The Sermon On The Mount?... Brother Glen Matthew 5:38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: 5:39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. 5:40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also. 5:41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. 5:42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away. 5:43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 5:46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 5:47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
