If Christianity Ever Became a Crime | Pt 46

I don’t remember who said this, but I distinctly remember hearing this in a Youtube interview or in a podcast at one point. The topic of faith and how this person lived that faith came up, and the man slowly and deliberately said, “If Christianity ever became a crime, I hope there would be enough evidence to convict me.”

I remember stopping and thinking about that one for a minute. That was something so raw and so honest. It almost seemed dangerous.

The more I thought about it though, the more I recognized the beauty within that statement. Now that we’re in the season of Easter, it’s nice to reflect on the events of Lent, and particularly of Holy Week. Would I have joined Jesus in going to the cross? Would I have fled like the apostles? Or denied Jesus as did Peter?

If Christianity ever became a crime, would I be willing to accept my sentence?

Furthermore, how difficult of a job would it be for the prosecution to prove my guilt?

May God preserve us from making things too difficult for them.
