Four Bible Passages Applicable For The Culture of Today

Christians are faced with cultural issues that oppose biblical truth. We are being taken to court because we refuse to wait on gays. We are being told to not wear crosses or to not pray in the name of Jesus. The Bible is being dishonored. Celebrities are calling us names just because they do not like the way we believe. Some Christians are being discriminated against just because we are--Christians, and are taking a stand for the truth. Religious persecution is here. By "here," I mean the United States of America, the land of the free. How should we as Christians respond? Here are four Bible passages that might be of help.

I Peter 2:15 tells us to do what is right, that the ignorance of foolish men might be silenced.

II Timothy 2:23-26 says to refute foolish and ignorant speculations. Do not be quarrelsome. Be kind to all, and patient when wronged. Gently correct those who are in opposition, SO THAT God will grant them repentance, that they may come to the truth, come to their senses, and escape from the snare of the devil.

Luke 21:12-15 applies to being taken to court. "...they will lay their hands on you and persecute you...You will be brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake." This passage goes on to say to consider it an occasion for having a testimony. Do not prepare beforehand to defend ourselves. God will give us utterance and wisdom which no one will be able to resist or refute. In other words, we will silence the ignorance of foolish men.

Psalm 31:15 reminds us to commit things to the Lord and pray for deliverance from our enemies and from those who persecute us.

We must apply these verses. Things are not going to get any easier. In fact, persecution is going to get worse before we are raptured out of the world.
