Half of Americans believe U.S. Christians persecuted
Almost half of Americans believe that Christians in the United States are being persecuted by homosexual "marriage" advocates who take legal action against them over their religious beliefs, and almost one in three Democrats believes such treatment is "necessary," according to the alarming results of a new poll.

The question was, "There is a trend developing in which gay activists are filing lawsuits against people who refuse to do business with them on moral/religious grounds ‚Äď such as when a New Mexico photographer was sued by a lesbian couple for refusing to photograph their wedding. Knowing this, which of the following statements most closely represents what you think about this?"

More than two of three Republicans called it "persecution of Christians," along with 45 percent of independents. Even 33.1 percent of Democrats had he same answer. ...

I don't know if the IHCC bookstore still sells a copy of this excellent book or not, but you can also find it on the Internet, Christianity and Liberalism --J. Gresham Machen, which you can read on line.

An excellent commentary, well except his remark about Nebraska

Liberalism
Beware of what you do not know, as well as what you think you know.

"In the sphere of religion, in particular, the present time is a time of conflict; the great redemptive religion which has always been known as Christianity is battling against a totally diverse type of religious belief, which is only the more destructive of the Christian faith because it makes use of traditional Christian terminology. This modern non-redemptive religion is called ‚Äúmodernism‚ÄĚ or ‚Äúliberalism.‚ÄĚ Both names are unsatisfactory; the latter, in particular, is question-begging. The movement designated as ‚Äúliberalism‚ÄĚ is regarded as ‚Äúliberal‚ÄĚ only by its friends; to its opponents it seems to involve a narrow ignoring of many relevant facts. And indeed the movement is so various in its manifestations that one may almost despair of finding any common name which will apply to all its forms. But manifold as are the forms in which the movement appears, the root of the movement is one; the many varieties of modern liberal religion are rooted in naturalism − that is, in the denial of any entrance of the creative power of God (as distinguished from the ordinary course of nature) in connection with the origin of Christianity." (J.Gresham Machen)

It's not too hard to separate the mix of interests, that is, if we may persuade men of the severity of God. As sure as the Lord says to not be unequally yoked with the wicked (but we should by an equality be yoked together, or otherwise need to go out of the world), and he says, to go the extra mile (which is not to say we must go 5 or 10 miles when asked to go 1). Indeed, we are called to bear our cross, which takes us by love of the truth, and binds us to endure all things and weary ourselves for Jesus' name sake.

In the Early Church (of the early rain of the Holy Ghost), they parted unto all men as every man had legitimate need: with in the Church, No man had overmuch, neither had lack, but had all things common. It is written, and that in the extended, unwavering, tight-rope of the Word of God. Now, whoever is guilty of persecuting the just, they will have an extra charge and thrust down into hell: who's interest would that be in? Nobody's. Yet, we have men on all sides who seem to delight in it, while we cloth our children with common clothes off the rack portraying skulls, blood, and bones: which are nowhere near blessing in the name of the Lord with a spirit of peace.

jpw,

I read and considered and the Scripture that came to my mind is 2 Thes. 2:9-13
"Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:"

Thomas Manton has a 'dated' but helpful series of sermons on this text.

Liberalism, a modern term not found in scripture, with the idea of breaking down societal norms, which are often Christian declaratives, is definitely a problem. No doubt.

But I am getting the impression that some great ghost scholar has reduced our great struggles between liberalism and the bible.

What happens with this false paradigm is that Christians go against "liberalism" and think they have done it all.

I would say there are many "isms" as far as the world's ways and sins go. "Liberalism" is but one.

Some Christians have a harder time breaking their alleigance to other systems, and almost relish and enjoy being lied to day after day, having to feel a sense of security. These Christians are completely oblivious to the new state of affairs in politics, the global nature of these things, or the evolutionary/eugenic source of those things they most relish. Ironically, these are the first to decry evolution and the New World Order as "Liberal".

They are dual Christians, worshipping the two big G's, Gov. and God in that order. The Hitleresque Romans 13 "Christians" who would in a moment sell their Christian brother for 30 silver coins thinking they were advancing their holy state.

2 Timothy 3:11-13 (King James Version)
"Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

If I rightly understand, the godly are recognized by their love for Christ's atoning sacrifice on their behalf, demonstrated by keeping his commandments and loving his people.
Then, their increasing conformity to the Word (Christ)or sanctification (evidence of their justification) will be demonstrated: first, in their love to God (living godly)obeying in faith the 1st table of the moral law, together with their love for the brethren/their neighbor as righteous in Christ's righteousness; so obeying in faith the 2nd table. You can't have godliness without righteousness.

Is a Christian who is not persecuted a TRUE Christian?

Matt 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you."

The alternative religion to this is Liberalism - those, " who hold the truth in unrighteousness"
