A Challenged Faith

Consider the following quotes:

“It is not until a man finds his faith opposed and attacked that he really begins to think about the implications of that faith.”   William Barclay

“God I do not ask you to make my life easy; I do ask you to make me strong.”

From a Jewish child; found in the rubble of a Jewish ghetto in Poland after being bombed by the Nazis.

“The cause, not the suffering make a genuine martyr.”   St. Augustine

“A martyr is, he who has become the instrument of God, who has lost his will in the will of God, not lost it but found it, for he has found freedom in submission to God. The martyr no longer desires anything for himself, not even the glory of martyrdom.”

T.S. Elliot in his book Murder in the Cathedral

“We don’t pray to be better Christians, but that we may be the only kind of Christians God means us to be; Christ-like Christians, that is, Christians who will bear willingly the cross for God’s glory.” From a letter smuggled out from the underground church in Romania

“I would rather be hung than betray my Lord.” Seleema—a 19 yr. old Christian in Pakistan who has been severely persecuted for her faith.

“We pray for the government of Sudan but thank God for it too. Thanks to its policies and its war against Christians—the terror, the threats, the imprisonment—look at how the church has grown. Look at what God has allowed us to do here in the middle of this! Look at how many are turning to Christ.” A Sudanese Christian

I just wonder, if you aren’t willing to suffer and die for your faith, are you really living for it?
