Subject: RE: What does the word 'God' mean to you?,II
I have no doubt that I would have been one to go to the stake and the thin veneer of our enlightened civilization affords me not a lot of comfort that it isn't still a very real possibilty even today. Christians are being persecuted and killed all around the world. In this supposedly "Christian" country Christianity is undeer ceaseless attack in the press, in art, television media, on college campuses. Some of the criticism is warranted, no doubt. And there is room for honest debate. But if you are honest you will see that there is an assualt upon the cause of Christ in general. Christians preach tolerance and so its enemies feel that they can attack with impunity. They are much to cowardly to turn the same vile treatment upon Islam because religious freedom and tolerance is not what immediately comes to mind when one thinks of Islam. Christ is a soft target for bullies and cowards.

One little note: God in His Word states "My Spirit will not always strive with the spirit of Man." His "Age of Grace" will not last forever.
