make sure that the growing persecution of Christians in America is put to an end.

Our country is filled with nothing but negative outlooks on Christianity and the church of today. The entire country is on a moral downslide because we as Christians will not stand up and speak out. We allow the media to put out negative pictures of religion as whole while mocking Christianity specifically. However, we cannot blame it all on the media. So few Christians today live their lives as an exclamation of their relationship with Christ. We need to begin mending our own lifestyles and then move on to the media to let them know that we will not take this lying down. ~ Psalm 94:16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity? ~ Will you stand up and speak out?

1. Christian persecution is slowly growing in America.

2. Christians need to start standing up for our rights instead of sitting back and keeping quiet.

3. We must first adjust our lifestyles to reflect the joy and blessings that come with our salvation.
