Is it right for our churches to start "selling out" to the fear of government persecution?


Our pastor, the founder of our small country church has ordered all signage taken down that identifies us as a church to any passers by. His fear is that with all of the "up coming persecution of Christians, ISIS, and government crackdowns" that we are just "asking for trouble" if we are identified as a Christian Church. Isn't this selling God out? Isn't this the same thing as someone threatening to kill us if we profess our faith in Jesus? All of these fears are pumped into his 85 year old head by people like Jim Bakker and other televangelists.

    JM: During these "End Times," God is separating the "tares from the wheat" (Matt 13:30) as evidenced by this "pastor!" (Jer 23:1)

    "Playing Church" is over! ALL will be revealed!
