It was before ISIS, al-Qaida, Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden, Khalid Sheikh Mohammad, the Internet, videos of bloody executions and appeasement of Islam.
It was 1957, and Billy Graham was in the business of warning Christians in America about persecution.
“The immunity to persecution that Christians in our country have experienced in the past two or three centuries is unusual,” he said.
Explaining that “the words ring true today,” the Billy Graham Association’s Decision magazine has republished Graham’s article its November 2015 edition.
The article suggests many American Christians would break once the cultural tide goes against their faith.
Nearly 60 years ago, Graham wrote: “Since we have experienced little religious persecution in this country, it is likely that under pressure many would deny Christ. Those who shout the loudest about their faith may surrender soonest. Many who boast of being courageous would be cowardly. Many who say, ‘Though all others deny Christ, yet I will never deny Him,’ would be the first to warm their hands at the campfires of the enemy.”
