Jesus & Sister Freaks
In reply to Granimor,
God calls all Christians to lay their lives down for the cause of Christ, if we have to.
“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.” 1 John 3:16
Jesus Christ died to save us from everlasting punishment and death. Most of these people in the stories have been faced a choice, if they renounce their faith, they’ll be saved from punishment from humans, however they also have the knowledge that Christ laid himself down for them.
I’ll tell you what it says on the covers:
There are more Christian martyrs today than there were in 100AD – in the days of the Romans Empire. According to the world Christian Encyclopedia, there were close to 156,000 Christian martyred in 1998. And estimated 164,000, will be martyred in 1999.
For some people today standing up for Jesus means dying for Him. In John 15:13 Jesus says, “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay odwn his life for his friends.
This book has been dedicated to all those who refused to deny Jesus.
Your faith was not in vain.
In this book there is a huge message for Christians:
“Remember the Lord’s people who are in jail and be concerned for them. Don’t forget those who are suffering, but imagine that you are there with them.” Hebrews 13:3 (cev)
