Today in my sermon I used an illustration regarding our walk in faith. Paul says we are called to walk our faith and not in our past. With this in mind, would there be enough evidence to convict you if someone wanted to charge you with being a Christian?
Historically people of faith were imprisoned and even killed for being faithful Christians. Rome loved to kill Christians in those early years before Constantine neutered the faith by making it a State religion. Then during the Reformation, Rome continued its love of killing Christians for walking their faith.
With that past in mind, is there enough evidence in your life today for Rome to convict you of being a Christian?
If authorities rounded up your family, would they find evidence of your faith in your family? What about your friends and neighbors? If meeting or interrogating those close relationships, would there be enough evidence to convict you of Christianity?
What could Rome use against you?
Or would they let you go because the evidence of your faith is lacking?
