I don’t actually mind being slagged off for my faith, or laughed at. I don’t mind if folk think I’m bonkers. What would concern me far far more would be if I was being arrogant or pushy and deserving of the abuse.

Spoiled mollycoddled Christians in the comfortable West too often scream persecution when all that’s happening is that their own lack of grace has rubbed folk up the wrong way, and those folk have, understandably, let them have it in return.

On the other hand, persecution is real and alive on planet Earth, and I pray for those who’re experiencing the true variety.

Very true. A good friend of mine likes to remind me that the gospel is only offensive to the hardened heart, yet we often make the gospel offensive to the most open of minds, and that’s almost invariably down to our own lack of grace too.
