Christianity Is Not a Crime

Acts 18:14-17 – 14 And when Paul was about to open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews, “If it were a matter of wrongdoing or wicked crimes, O Jews, there would be reason why I should bear with you. 15 But if it is a question of words and names and your own law, look to it yourselves; for I do not want to be a judge of such matters.” 16 And he drove them from the judgment seat. 17 Then all the Greeks took Sosthenes, the ruler of the synagogue, and beat him before the judgment seat. But Gallio took no notice of these things.

Believe it or not, Christians are being made to feel that what we believe is a crime. People say that the Bible is offensive and filled with hate speech. More and more restrictions are being placed on how we can show our faith, how we can practice our faith and what we can say/not say about our faith. If you don’t believe me, just ask the Christian teacher that was recently let go from his teaching job at a public school because he insisted on calling boys, boys and girls, girls. Regardless of how people may make you feel, remember this; Christianity is not a crime. You are free to believe what you believe, pray how you want to pray, read what you want to read and worship how you want to worship. If the “worse” thing that people can say about us is that we are Christians, then take comfort in knowing that you are living the life that the Lord has called you to live.

I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
