Arrested for going to Church: Would you go to church knowing if you arrived you would be arrested on the spot?

Arrested for going to Church

The way the country seems to be running it seems like they’re slowly removing our Christian rights. My question is if a law is passed  saying it’s illegal for you go to church how many people would still show up to church? I mean honestly say they will. I know at times, we will say we will but do something different.

How about if they knew the police were there to arrest you if you showed up how many people would still show up? Would you not be ashamed and still go to the church knowing soon, you will be cuffed, finger printed and behind bars? Serving hard times?

Well, in America we are free to worship, but in other countries, this does happen. How about if you were a Missionary in a foreign land? Take Pastor Saeed Abedini, who was locked up for his faith. He is in torture in that prison in Iran. I would say it would take strong faith to be able to stand up like that and continue to keep strong in your faith while being locked up.

Or would you cower away and pretend that you didn’t go to church. Would you be like Peter denying Jesus? Would you reject knowing Christ or the Church?

I honestly pray and hope that I will be bold and show up. I am not ashamed of the Gospel. If I do go, be bold to witness and share the gospel in the jail as well. Even if they put me in isolation, to boldly continue my faith in Christ. I know that God will take care of me. I don’t mind losing my life for Him. Losing your life may not mean death, but giving up what you are doing to benefit his Kingdom. Losing your life, not doing what you want, but what He wants.

It’s like landing on the GO TO JAIL spot on the Monopoly game. But unlike that one, we can’t roll doubles to get out of jail for free. Would you be ashamed or would you gladly go and not be ashamed.

I want to leave you with this food for thought in this blog post brief. … If we’re ashamed of Jesus Christ, He will be ashamed of us. This comes from scripture too.  Read Mark 8:38 & Luke 9:26

I want to hear from you. Do you think you would show up for church knowing you will be arrested? Do you see in the future that this could possibly happen? I want to hear from you. Your comments are welcome!
