 The reality of 1John 4:15

[i]Imagine getting life in prison for wearing a cross.[/i]

According to the prisoner list at Voice of the Martyrs, a believer was arrested in Pakistan on September 25, 2004 after some people noticed he was wearing a cross. It says after they questioed him about it they made up false charges about desecrating the Koran. And he was sentenced to life in prison!

The story is here at...

His is the last one on the page.

I used to wonder about 1John 4:15 from the veiwpoint of our religous liberty here in the west. I think this story has given me a deeper appreciation for what it meant in the first century and still means today.
