Use of extreme tolerance and equality to silence “Christian followers” getting worse
Christian persecution and martyrdom are much worse today than at any time in history (ACN US). While there have been thousands of religious persecution in the world, the case of Jack Philips clearly shows political correctness is behind the hostility. Jack is a cake artist, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop
In 2012, a gay couple asked him to create a wedding cake celebrating their same-sex marriage. Jack respectfully declined because of his Christian belief. The couple took their case to the Colorado Civil Rights Commission. For almost seven years, the state tried to destroy Jack Phillips’ business (Real Politics). In 2019, it finally dropped the case after evidence showed “ongoing hostility” toward religious freedom. (ADF)

Christian persecution using the constitutions prevalent in America
Most recently, 84-year-old American Vet widow Artis Breau is facing expulsion from the Veterans Home unless she stops conducting Bible studies. Similarly, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) asked to remove the vintage POW Bible on display at Manchester Medical Center, because it’s unconstitutional. In 2016, a POW Bible was removed from display at Wright-Patterson Medical Center.
Difficult times ahead, says Timothy
The book of Revelation is a glimpse of what is to come, but the book of 2 Timothy summarize the kind of millennial persecution happening. It is associated with the extreme political and liberal left ideology that’s sweeping many countries. However, the question is, are you prepared for the second coming of Jesus?
2 Timothy 3-6
“But know this: Difficult times will come in the last days. 2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, irreconcilable, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, without love for what is good, 4 traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 holding to the form of godliness but denying its power. Avoid these people!” 6
