Beheaded For Christ

I would not often link to articles by Michael Brown, he being a thoroughgoing Arminian, albeit, I trust, a true child of God.  The article above, however, is an excellent reminder of the price that people are paying in many parts of the world to name the name of Christ.  We do not have to look back to the days of the Inquisition or the tyrannies of Nero and Caligula to find Christian martyrs who loved not their lives to the death, for they are abundant in our own day and time in many parts of the world.  The story Dr. Brown relates in this article is a remarkable own, and illustrates the saving and transforming power of the gospel, as well as reminding us that we are to pray for those who under persecution, for they are our brethren in one and the same Lord.
