Benazir Bhutto was assassinated yesterday for what she believed in. She stood firm for the freedom of the people of Pakistan. In spite of knowing that she may be killed in the near future, she stood firm for what she believed in. In spite of knowing that she may leave her children motherless, she stood fim for what she believed in.
She will go down in history as a freedom fighter. She will go down in history as being known for someone who was willing to die for what she believed in. To our shame, she has shown more courage during her return to Pakistan than many of us who walk daily with an all-powerful, all-knowing, ever faithul, ever loving, ever present God, and for this she should be commended.
What about you? Are you willing to die for what you believe in? Are you willing to die for the freedom of others?
If you are a Christian, then you are a freedom fighter or should be. If you are a Christian, then you should be sharing the freedom in Christ with a dying world. You should be fighting persecution, isolation, slander, gossip, and threats in your pursuit to express eternal freedom.
That being the case, are you willing to die in your pursuit to continue to be a Christian freedom fighter? Or are you allowing them to silence you by not allowing you to say 'Merry Christmas'? Are you allowing them to intimidate you with suspension if you take out a Bible on their grounds? Are you allowing them to intimidate you with being fired if you mention the name of Jesus?
Stand up and fight Christian warrior. Stand up and be an eternal freedom fighter.

I appreciate your article on Benazir Bhutto...I have been impressed with her stand on what she believed in...You are right in comparing her to us. How much do we believe and how much would we sacrifice for what we believe...It should be "our all." I pray that your article wakes up some of us in the "body of Christ." Well written...
