How do you overcome religious persecution in public by zealous non-believers?


1 Timothy 4:8 - For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. 1 Timothy 4:10 - For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe. 2 Timothy 3:12 - Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 2 Timothy 4:4 - And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. What course do you take?

    Exactly! Perhaps this asinine question is fueled by somehow mixing up the "online forum" scenario with real life. In fact, I think that more people need to keep their beliefs to their selves anyway...

    Persecution in any form is evil. Christians are taught to fight against evil. The question posed was meant to determine the ways to fight against Christian persecution on the street when confronted with the situation.

    I wish Joan could provide her answer. But alas, she cannot. Of course the easiest thing to do is to deny it ever happens. That way we do not have to deal with it when it harms others.

    I have been in Vietnam, China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, African countries, Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan, etc. They do endure persecution. But so do American Christians. Zealots continue to attack those who follow the Christian beliefs.
