The Bible Answers Short Questions From Our Readers
Plain Truth Staff

Question: The persecution in my home is so severe that it is difficult to live a Christian life. I do not try to cram my religion down anybody's throat. Am I bringing this persecution on through some hidden sin? Answer: God has not promised us an easy life - or a life that is free from troubles. Christ Himself predicted that His followers would be persecuted (John 15:20), even by their own families (Luke 21:16). But God has promised to deliver us out of all troubles (II Pet. 2:9 and Psa. 34:17). We must continuously look to God for help from every difficulty. God allows us to have trials for our own good, to strengthen us and to build up our faith. Through them we often learn to LOVE friends and relatives as never before - even though they ridicule and persecute. It is their feeling of guilt and self-condemnation that makes them persecute, they NEED year prayers!
